Golf ball line bears ladies linked to Tiger

February 3, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
A woman who claims to have been Tiger Woods' mistress is speaking out against a new line of golf balls that have her image and the images of other alleged Woods' mistresses on them. It's not every day you wake up to find your face on a golf ball. But then again, you're probably not a porn star who had a year-long fling with Tiger Woods.

"I was in love with Tiger, and I believe he was in love with me," said Veronica Siwik-Daniels.

Siwik-Daniels, though, isn't sitting with Gloria Allred to talk about Tiger.

The adult film actress known as Joslyn James hooked up with the attorney because she has a problem with a new line of golf balls.

"She has not authorized anyone to use her name and face on any product that mentions Tiger including these golf balls," said Allred.

A Canadian outfit is selling a set of 12 balls, each one sporting the face of a woman romantically linked to Woods. They call it "Tail of the Tiger - the Mistress Collection."

Allred's beef with the golf balls isn't a lack of compensation. It's domestic violence.

"To us, this would be no different than using a picture of a woman's face for target practice," explained Allred.

Allred says with Joslyn's face on a golf ball, it would get smacked around a golf course for a day, and Joslyn's face will be all battered and bruised. Therefore, she posits, you are encouraging men to beat up women.

"This can lead to violence. It can lead to violence against women and it must be stopped," said Siwik-Daniels.

But many people just outside Allred's office aren't making that connection.

"It's a little bit of a stretch to go as far as saying that," said Jimmy Pierre, a Hollywood resident.

And it's not just men who think Allred hooked this drive.

"I don't see a correlation whatsoever," said Susan Nemetz, a Los Angeles resident.

"It's an interesting spin. I guess that's why they pay her the big bucks," said Brandon Kiel, another Los Angeles resident.

"That's what she does. She looks for all the dirt, that woman," added Nemetz.

Regardless, Allred is threatening to sue the company if they don't stop selling the balls. The angry porn star and the fired up attorney are ready to tee-off in court.
