Tiger Woods’s agent Mark Steinberg has attempted to put a stop to mounting rumors that his client had a fling with the ex-wife of pro-golfer Jason Dufner.
“Absolutely, 100 percent false,” Steinberg said in an e-mail to Fox News on Wednesday. “Complete lie and fabrication.”
Reports of the alleged “steamy affair” with 27-year-old Amanda Boyd surfaced on Wednesday morning in The National Enquirer, which said that the alleged affair led to the May breakup of Woods and his girlfriend of two years Lindsey Vonn.
“Even though Tiger dated Lindsey for years, he had a ‘thing’ for Amanda,” The National Enquirer claims a source said.

Boyd was married to Dufner until April, when the two divorced. The National Enquirer did not make clear the timeline of the alleged affair.
This is obviously not the first time Woods has made news for reasons other than his golfing career. In 2009, the 39-year-old famously admitted to cheating on his ex-wife Elin Nordegren with several women during their six-year marriage. His philandering ended up costing him $110 million, which he paid to Nordegren as part of their 2010 divorce settlement. Today, the two share custody of their two kids, Sam and Charlie.
