Tiger Woods, the fly fisherman

So cool that Tiger slings bugs. The article goes....

Tiger Woods has reportedly been gearing himself up for the forthcoming British Open with some fly fishing in Ireland, which is one of his favourite spots to enjoy the pastime.

The 31-year-old star spent last week practicing at the K Club in County Kildare prior to what he hopes will be a successful four rounds at the Hoylake course in Royal Liverpool.

Woods also indulged in a spot of fly fishing three years ago prior to the Open at Sandwich, an event which was eventually won by his countryman Ben Curtis.

It is believed that the ten-time major winner owns some 17 fishing rods and reels with which to fuel his love of fly fishing, with another of his favourite spots being Alaska.

One of the other major winners who has become magnetised to the charms of fly fishing in recent years is US golfer Mark O' Meara.
