Buick and the Art of the Tiger (Woods, that is)

He’s proved a master of all he surveys – on the golf course, anyway. But can Tiger Woods also make a name for himself on the art scene. Judge for yourself from this piece, which might, at a casual glance, remind you of Jason Pollock’s drip art. (Okay, we’re automotive writers, not art critics!)

To create the pieces, Tiger substituted what were essentially golf ball equivalents of water balloons, here filled with paint. A collection of these tee shot canvases will be auctioned off for charity, starting in June, at the Buick open. Tiger’s golf wear-cum-painter’s-smock will also go under the gavel. How much does the automaker hope to raise? No one’s saying, but didn’t we read about a $15 million bid for a Picasso, the other day?
