Cigar Guy is amazed at Tiger's picture perfect shot

Only one man put his hands up whenTiger asked, who thinks I can get that camera man square in the face. Man in Blue was correct.

Above is the photo that everyone should be talking about because of the amazing way in which the ball is captured mid flight, maybe ten yards from tigers blade, seemingly about to strike the lens of the camera - and that's because it did. The ball then bounced off the photographer’s chest and fell to the ground. Wood’s was playing with Steve Stricker against Ross Fisher and Ian Poulter at the Ryder Cup at the time. It's being called the sports photograph of the year, and is tipped to win awards.

But it's become an internet sensation for another reason besides the quality of the photography

The cigar guy.

That dude to the right of Mr Woods
wearing what has been described as a "Groucho Marx style mustache and Rastafarian looking brown-red wig". Clearly he's trying to do a Miguel Angel Jimenez tribute. He just hasn't quite got there. It's the quizzical expression, the fact he looks like he's staring in a slightly different direction to everyone else, the fact that the costume is spectacularly weak. No-one knows who this guy is but I'm guessing he'll get some telly appearances out of this. He's already getting photoshopped into the background of other famous sporting pictures all over the world. A latter day numa numa guy or lolcats.

But he should be ashamed, attempting to pull off the Jimenez look, without equipping himself with a potbelly, absolutely criminal!

Tiger Woods's shots were really amazing. He's been my idol also. Wondering if they're back together (with her wife)..
