I intended to write about Tiger Woods and his alleged "lie" during the TPC Sawgrass but this Chicago-area guy trumped him.

Either there's something in the water in Illinois or in Florida because even I couldn't fathom what this one newlywed did on his honeymoon.

His name is Mohammed Ahmed, 21, of Lincolnwood, Illinois, just north of Chicago, and he was on his honeymoon at the Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate last week.

At some point, according to NBC,Ahmed answered an online ad for a prostitute. Ahmed left the hotel to meet the woman but when he arrived at the location, he was greeted by undercover police officers.

After Ahmed was arrested, his bride started to worry about his whereabouts and called the police to report him missing.

Oh yeah.

The sheriff's office then had the awkward and uncomfortable duty of informing the newly wed woman that her husband was in jail for hiring a prostitute. Ahmed was also charged with marijuana possession.

You see, the Polk County Sheriff was running a prostitution sting for four days and Ahmed got caught.

What was he thinking? Oh yeah, he wasn't.

And I need to say just a few words about Tiger Woods. A week ago Monday, he put on an embarrassing display of drunkeness at theMet Gala's after-party.

With his Alpine skier girlfriend Lindsey Vonn, 28, he headed to the star-studded after-party at the Boom Boom Room on top of the Standard Hotel, where Woods, 37, had too much to drink, according to Us Weekly.

After apparently too many cocktails, Woods did a rather awkward dance and grabbed Vonn's posterior. As they were leaving, he also fell down.

Now this could just be an isolated incident but it seems to me he exhibited poor judgment.

And then Saturday during the Players Championship,in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. there was another "oops" which he has allegedly compounded by lying.

On Tuesday,two course marshals are disputing Woods' retelling of what actually happened on Saturday. Sergio Garcia said Woods distracted him by pulling a club from his bag -- stirring the gathered gallery while Garcia attempted a shot elsewhere.

Woods said he didn't see Garcia when he made the move, and besides, the course marshals gave him the OK. You have to know that Garcia and Woods were playing partners for the round, and the two feuding golfers traded barbs throughout the weekend.

Woods' response to Garcia's complaint was: The marshals said I could. "The marshals, they told me he already hit, so I pulled a club and was getting ready to play my shot," Woods explained.

And what do the marshals say about that?

"He didn't ask us nothing," marshal Gary Anderson said Sunday, according to a report by Sports Illustrated. "We didn't say nothing. We're told not to talk to the players."

We shouldn't be surprised by what Woods does at this point and, while it's just another hook shot in his career, I still think the "dumbbell of the week" award goes to Ahmed.
