Tiger Woods Offers Condolences To The Family Suing Him In Wrongful Death Case Eric Levenson

Tiger Woods and his girlfriend have been hit with a wrongful death lawsuit after a 24-year-old employee at the golfer’s flagship restaurant crashed his car after being served alcohol one night while at work as a bartender. Woods is being sued along with his girlfriend, Erica Herman, and his Woods Jupiter corporation that runs The Woods restaurant in Jupiter, Florida, by the parents of Nicholas F. Immesberger, who died on December 10, 2018 in a drunk-driving crash.

According to reports, The lawsuit, filed Monday, states “the employees, management and owners of The Woods over-served a young man they knew was suffering with the disease of alcoholism.” The suit also claims they “ignored Immesberger’s disease, they fueled it by over-serving him alcohol to the point of severe intoxication and then sending him out to his car to drive home. As a result of this negligence Immesberger crashed his vehicle and died on December 10, 2018, after leaving The Woods.”

Speaking at a PGA press conference in Bethpage, New York on Tuesday, Woods addressed the lawsuit.

“We’re all very sad that Nick passed away,” Woods said when asked about the case. “It was a terrible night, a terrible ending. And we feel bad for him and his entire family. It’s very sad.”

According to the complaint, Immesberger finished his shift at the restaurant at 3:00 p.m. and stayed around to drink for another three hours before he got in his car and crashed it while driving home. The lawsuit contends that employees at The Woods were aware that one month prior to his fatal crash he had crashed another vehicle while driving home and that one of Immesberger’s friends had told employees at The Woods to stop serving the 24-year-old alcohol. 

At the time of his death, Immesberger’s blood-alcohol level was .256, nearly three times the legal limit of .08. Immesberger’s parents, who are co-managers of his estate, are listed as the plaintiffs in the lawsuit. 

Donald Trump Awards Tiger Woods The Presidential Medal of Freedom

President Donald Trump presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Tiger Woods in a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden on Monday, honoring his friend and golfing icon with the highest honor the president can bestow on a civilian.

According to reports, Tiger is one of the sport’s most decorated golfers and has captured more prize money during his career than any other rival in golf history, banking more than $118 million in winnings since he turned pro in 1996 at the age of 20.

The president called Woods a “true legend” and “an extraordinary athlete who has transformed golf and achieved new levels of dominance.”

“He’s also a great person. He’s a great guy,” Trump said. “Tiger Woods is a global symbol of American excellence, devotion and drive.”

After watching Woods clinch the 2019 Masters tournament on April 14, Trump, an avid golfer, tweeted his congratulations, calling him “a truly Great Champion.”

Tiger Woods Wins Masters For Fifth Time

Tiger Woods clinched his fifth Masters and 15th major title to seal one of the greatest comeback stories in sport after overcoming career-threatening back problems.

According to reports, After an 11-year drought, golf’s most polarizing and popular figure has added another major to his dossier, outlasting a star-studded leaderboard on Sunday by posting a final round 2-under 70 to win the 2019 Masters. It’s his first major win since the 2008 U.S. Open, 15th of his career and first at Augusta National since 2005. With five green jackets now in his Augusta locker, Woods is second all-time at the pristine course behind only Jack Nicklaus, who won six times between 1963 and 1986.

“I was just trying to plod my way around the golf course all day, then all of a sudden I had the lead, and coming up 18, it was just trying to make a 5,” said Woods. “When I tapped the putt in, I don’t know what I did, but I know I screamed. And then I was just looking for Joey. I shook the guys’ hands and then found Joey, and it was a pretty big embrace. To have my kids there, it’s come full circle. My dad was here in 1997 and now i’m the dad with two kids there.”

Woods becomes a five-time Masters winner on Sunday, which stands alone as the second-most in the sport’s history ahead of Arnold Palmer. Only Jack Nicklaus, who won six, has more. The victory marks Woods’ first at Augusta since 2005, when he capped an incredible decade of dominance at the event he also won in 1997, 2000 and 2001.

“It’s overwhelming,” said Woods of winning for a fifth time. “I think just because of what has transpired, and last year i was just very lucky to be playing again. The previous dinner, the champions dinner, I was really struggling and missed a couple years of not playing this great tournament. To now be the champion, 22 years between wins is a long time. But it’s just unreal for me to experience this. My mom was here, she was there in 97 as well. So I just couldn’t be more happy and more excited and i’m kind of at a loss for words, really.”

‘Hit Them Where It Hurts’: LeBron James’ Refusal To Stay At Trump SoHo Sparked Exodus Of Corporate Clients.

Lebron James no longer stay at President Donald Trump’s Trump SoHo Hotel in New York that sparked an exodus of corporate clients from the property. And the Trump Organization has now withdrawn from the property

According to reports, it was James’ public refusal to stay at the Trump SoHo that inspired others to leave. The Trump Organization has been forced to exit the hotel due to their struggles and losing corporate clients like sports teams are a big reason why.

After LeBron James publicly refused to stay at the hotel last year, the corporate clients and 20 or so sports teams that had been regular guests almost entirely disappeared, the staff member said. Porters whose base salaries were once buoyed by up to $60,000 a year in gratuities have earned half as much in tips.
