"Cigar Guy" Identified!

The photo of Tiger Woods shanking a pitch shot into the camera of The Mail on Sunday photographer Mark Pain during the Ryder Cup has fast become one of the greatest golf photographs of all time, in part, because of the comical Groucho Marx-looking man to Woods's left. The Daily Mail has tracked down the guy and reveals his identity in this story, and he's not a publicity hound, just an enthusiastic golf fan. Also included in the piece is a number of famous images doctored so that Cigar Guy appears in them. Funny stuff.

Thanks to my friend Nancy Powers for the tip on this one.
