Tiger Woods Dominates Mark Cuban in Charity Poker Event in Las Vegas

By Jesse Reed

Tiger Woods may be in a slump on the golf course, but it appears his poker game is going strong. New career, perhaps?

The legendary PGA superstar took Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban to task during a charity poker event in Las Vegas over the weekend.

Hijacking the Instagram account of Lynn Gilmartin, a TV host for Fox Sports, Cuban let everybody know Tiger had cleaned him out during the event. The charity benefitted the Tiger Woods Foundation—a far-reaching charity that lends help to community-based programs for children.


Cuban, of course, is a very, very, VERY rich man, so take his comments with a grain of salt.

For his part, Woods maintained his poker face throughout Cuban’s rant. That said, as you can see here, courtesy of his foundation’s Twitter account, Woods was certainly amused:

Since he came into prominence, Woods has always been very involved with trying to help people in need. His foundation is a tremendous resource for children and families with low incomes. Even though Woods hasn’t been striking it true on the golf course, he continues to show his dedication in the public service arena.

And it’s nice to have a little fun along the way.
