We knew it! Tiger Woods orchestrated his “first public appearance” with a photo agency!

Tiger Woods, we knew those photos looked fake! Tiger reportedly approached Getty Images to shoot the pics, days before his public apology.

We called it the day the photos were taken, Feb. 19! After disappearing completely from the public eye for three months, Tiger suddenly showed up smiling, casually running with a trainer in his hometown of Windermere, Florida. And it was “coincidentally” on the very same day that his rep released a statement saying that he would be issuing a public apology the next day. It sounded too good to be true…and it was!

Jonathan Klein, CEO of Getty Images, told CNBC, “We were approached and Tiger happened to know the photographer (Sam Greenwood) and has known him for a long time.”

Now we wasn to know if the photos of Elin Nordegren taken the day before the press conference were staged, too? She sure was sporting a lot of Nike that day. Hmmmm.

Klein said his agency made “very little” money from the faked photo — they made a deal with Tiger’s people to make it available to other wire agencies.

Tiger, for someone who remained so private for so long we just knew that there was something fishy. Turns out we were right!
