Athlete??? That's like calling a footballer a sportsman.

Pfft, as if black people are allowed to serve in any of the West's armed forces.

The very idea.

How is wanting to join the Armed Forces walting?
How does the following approximate 'wanting to join the armed forces'?

According to Mr Haney, Woods undertook dozens of trips to naval bases across the country "in a programme that approximated the training for a Navy Seal candidate".


"To my knowledge, he did training in parachuting, self-defence, urban-warfare simulations and shooting," he claims.


"I never heard of Tiger doing any training in the water with the Seals, but he was already a pretty accomplished diver."
According to the book, Woods talked about a three-day trip during which he parachuted as many as 10 times a day and touted his long-range shooting skills.


"He talked all about the different guns and how to allow for wind and the flight of the bullet, almost as if he were describing a golf shot," Mr Haney writes.

He visited military units and trained with them in the hope of joining them (apparently).

It's not walting.
If a bloke in the pub told you that, despite being beyond the entry age for the Armed Forces, they'd made a special exemption for him and he'd been away with the SAS doing 10 jumps a day, self-defence, urban-warfare simulations, shooting and sniping... You wouldn't suspect walting?

Famous, rich bloke has hobby that requires him to be famous and rich. Happy days for him.

ARRSEr gets the outrage.

ARRSE doesn't care that much.

Thread ends.

The story doesn't say that Woods said he'd done any of that (other than the parachuting). It says the coach knew that Woods had done training in parachuting, self defence blah blah blah.

Considering his father was SF I think it's more possible than some random drunk in a pub claiming to be second man on the balcony. Whether they were really considering waiving the normal entrance rules for him is another question - again, it's possible that both his father's military past and his celebrity status may have meant that they were willing to ignore him being over the normal top age for entry.

The ex-coach has a book to sell about an exceptionally famous misery guts who likes shagging around.

Usually that would be enough to see the story fly off the shelves, but he obviously needed a bit of harmless underwater knife fighting fiction to pad out the tome. Can't blame the man can you? It helped Andy McNab become rather rich didn't it?
