Former supermodel Jodie Kidd
is the latest name to emerge in the Tiger Woods saga.
Last night, Miss Kidd, 31, said she was aware she had been linked with the golfer as rumours circulated that she was the British TV presenter romantically involved with him.
Miss Kidd – a former TV sports presenter – confirmed she had met Woods twice but insisted they had never been romantically involved.
She said: ‘I’m aware of the rumours going around about a British TV personality, but I can assure you it’s not me
‘Yes, I have met Tiger on two occasions.
‘They were both golf related and he seemed very pleasant, but we probably exchanged about three words.’ Miss Kidd first met Woods in September 2006 when she starred in a TV programme for Channel 4 alongside Vernon Kay and footballer Ian Wright.
She practised putting with Woods in London’s Leicester Square, where he was photographed standing beside her and demonstrating his swing. The programme was part of a publicity drive for his new computer golf game.
Miss Kidd said: ‘Tiger was literally whisked in and out by his aides for the TV show. It was all over very quickly and we barely said three words to each other.
‘It was hardly a private lesson, although I wish I could have had one. He is the most formidable golfer.’
They also met a week later at the American Express World Golfing Championships at
The Grove Hotel and Golf Course in Hertfordshire. Both were among a group of celebrities and stayed overnight.
Jodie said: ‘It was a celebrity event and Tiger was there and we said hello, but again it was very fleeting.’
