Tiger Woods “Cigar Guy” becomes runaway web hit

Tiger Woods London, Oct 7 (ANI): A golf fan, nicknamed “Cigar Guy”, has become an Internet sensation after he was spotted in a photograph taken of professional golfer Tiger Woods misjudging a shot at the Ryder Cup.

The man was pictured wearing a ginger-coloured wig, fake moustache and chomping on a large Havana, in tribute to iconic Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez, the Daily Mail reported.

The photograph showed the ball heading at high speed straight towards the camera after Woods misjudged a fairway shot at the Ryder Cup on October 2.

But instead of Woods becoming the focus of the photograph, the spectator behind him became the centre of attention, and he is now in hundred of viral emails posted on websites around the world.

Images of the cigar-chomping fan have appeared on famous album covers, including The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and at legendary sporting events such as footballer Diego Maradona’s infamous Hand of God incident at the 1986 World Cup.

And online pranksters have even mocked a picture of Woods ogling Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins’ shapely form last week by placing the head of the “cigar guy” over the golfer’s. (ANI)
