Steinberg: Tiger Hasn't Bought Hamptons Mansion

March 18, 2008

"Absolutely false," is what Tiger Woods' agent Mark Steinberg tells about the front-page story in today's New York Post that says Woods has purchased a mansion in the Hamptons for $65 million. "I have no idea where this came from," says Steinberg. "Tiger has not purchased a place in the Hamptons, and he isn't looking for a place on Long Island."

Beneath the headline "Tiger Den," is a report that Woods paid $65 million for a six-acre oceanfront mansion less than five miles from Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton. Located on exclusive Gin Lane, the estate borders the Atlantic Ocean and includes a 13,200-square-foot main residence, a 7,500-square-foot guesthouse, a pool and spa, a tennis court, a lily pond and professionally groomed gardens.

According to the Post story, nearby residents include real-estate developer Alfred Taubman, former New York Times publisher Arthur Ochs "Punch" Sulzberger and fashion designer Vera Wang.

Woods lives with his wife, Elin, and their daughter, Sam Alexis, in Windermere, Fla., near Orlando. They also own an estate on Jupiter Island, Fla.
