Tiger's harem grows to nine?

An offer from Oprah Winfrey, an affair with a porn star and revelations of Tiger's systematic technique of luring women are the latest installments in the Tiger Woods' sex saga.

But saddest of all are reports that Tiger privately called his marriage "a sham."

Tiger Woods' harem of young mistresses has grown to nine as the evidence mounts that he was not only the greatest golfer of our time but also the greatest conqueror since Wilt Chamberlain cut a swath through American womanhood in the 1960s and '70s.

There are even media reports that several other women are about to speak out about their own affairs and that Tiger's harem could grow to an even dozen in the next few days.

Woods' "transgressions" have gone from the shocking to the downright sleazy as the New York Post reports the latest of Tiger's paramours is a porn star named Holly Sampson, the star of such titles as, Other Men's Wives, Decent into Bondage and Diary of a Horny Housewife.

And The Chicago Sun-Times is quoting sources from the MGM Grand and other casinos in Las Vegas on how Woods moved through so many women. The sources say that Woods' bodyguards would approach young women in casinos and lead them back to the boss.

"Once the girls went to his table, he'd just take it from there," an MGM staffer said.

The manager of a Las Vegas hot spot told the MSNBC Web site, "(Woods) wasn't one to send away someone who was interested. There was a revolving door."

While many are convinced that Woods' alleged disgraceful conduct makes him as welcome as Osama bin Laden, there is one woman in America who is reaching out her hand to save Tiger from his own destructive sexual impulses: Oprah Winfrey.

The web site PopEater.com says that Winfrey has contacted Woods and given him the opportunity of telling his side of the story. Given the way America enjoys watching its heroes confess and cry in public, this may be the only conceivable way Woods could retrieve a scrap of respect from this public relations catastrophe.

But respect may prove more difficult for Woods to regain after reports that he has publicly called his five-year marriage to Swedish beauty, Elin Nordegren, a "sham."

According to celebrity web site TMZ, an unnamed Florida cocktail waitress is saying that Woods told her, "It's only for publicity."

The woman, who is speaking through her lawyer, Michael O'Quinn, claimed that she met Woods at Roxy Nightclub in Orlando in 2004, when she was 20 and carried on a two-year affair with him. Unlike some of the other women who have come forward, this woman prefers to remain anonymous.

Part of the pristine image of Woods was his marriage to Nordegren. The couple have a two-year-old daughter, Sam Alexis, and a son who was born in February, Charlie Axel.

But if Tiger Woods used his pretty wife and family as a front for his prodigious sexual escapades, there is very little hope that anyone in the world - not even Oprah - will forgive him.
