Tiger Woods Will Live Aboard His $20 Million Yacht During US Open

Tiger Woods Will Live Aboard His $20 Million Yacht During US Open

Tiger Woods doesn't need a hotel while he chases his fourth U.S. Open title - he brought his own $20 million pad.

The 14-time major champion is now ranked 80th in the world following last weekend's Memorial Tournament, where he finished tied for 23rd. He has docked at Gurney's Montauk Yacht Club prior to the start of the second major of the year, according to Page Six. It has a crew of nine, and is thought to cost around $2m a year to run.

There's a master suite in addition to six staterooms, and it can accommodate 21 overnight guests. Other amenities include a full bar and eight-person hot tub on the deck, as well as a scuba decompression chamber.

A 21-year-old Palestinian medic, who has been wearing a medical uniform, was also killed by the IDF during protests. It said at one location at least two Palestinian militants fired guns at its forces and others threw grenades.

Woods bought the boat in 2004 after his marriage to Elin Nordegren and the couple reportedly spent their wedding night on the yacht.

In advance of the annual golf major teeing off at the Shinnecock Hills Golf Course on June 14, Woods has already brought his 155-foot boat to Montauk Yacht Club so he can live and sleep aboard it during the tournament.

Woods tried to sell the yacht, which has entertained friends including Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, and Michael Jordan, in 2011 but couldn't find a buyer. The area around Shinnecock Hills on the eastern end of Long Island is full of attractive rental homes and beachside hotels.
