The World Exclusive first photo of Tiger Woods in rehab is NOT Tiger!

X17 got these photos of the Tiger look alike today outside of the Pine Grove Gentle Path rehabilitation center in Mississippi, and though the man certainly resembles Tiger with his athletic build, one look at his face reveals that this is the wrong guy. From the shorts to the watch to the white Hurley tee, this is clearly the same man in both shots, and he even has a unique way of wearing his black hooded sweatshirt around his neck like a scarf.

About 20 men from the rehab center were outside exercising today, and an X17 photographer on the scene tells X17online exclusively:

    "All the media outside the rehab center ran to follow this guy coming out of the building. We all knew this was the same guy that had been identified as Tiger. He had the same sweathshirt, the same baseball cap - everything. Then, we finally got a good look at his face and all the photographers looked at each other and said, 'That's not him!' We all took off."

Yup, definitely not Tiger! So is he really even there? Is this a decoy? Or is it just coincidence there's a look alike at the rehab facility? It's now been exactly two months since we've seen a single photograph of Tiger, so if he's stayed in hiding for this long, we're guessing we're not going to snap a picture of him anytime soon.

Since Tiger's rep hasn't commented on his whereabouts, and as the supposed first shot of Tiger isn't actually him, we're pretty much back to square one in terms of locating the adulterous golf pro. Given all the media attention Pine Grove has received over the past week, it's entirely possible that the barriers were erected to protect the privacy of the other patients there...

Tiger's Rehab Is A Far Cry From His Multi-Million Dollar Mansion

Jan 22, 2010 10:40 AM


After reports that Tiger Woods was spotted at a local airport last Friday (along with a grainy photo of what appears to be Tiger at the Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services clinic), speculation is growing stronger that the golf pro is holed up at the Hattiesburg, Mississippi rehab facility.

Though Tiger's rep won't comment on his whereabouts, a menacing 16-foot fence was put up around the clinic to block photographers and onlookers from gaining access. The program costs a whopping $37,100 for 45 days, but it's certainly not a lux rehab facility, as evident from the pictures we snapped the other day. An X17 photographer on the scene tells X17online exclusively:

    "This place really doesn't seem fun at all. The living quarters look like army barracks and the grounds are bare and cold. I honestly don't know how Tiger's getting through this. He's used to sunny Florida, his multi-million-dollar home and now he's in the middle of this mess. It's gotta be hell for him."

While photographs on the facility's website depict a tranquil setting that looks like the inside of a posh gated community, it doesn't look anything like the barracks-style housing Tiger's reportedly been staying in. Tiger could have checked himself into a more upscale rehab facility on the west coast, but instead he's choosing to keep a low profile at a relatively simple place where he's stripped of excess and forced to get back to the basics.

Tiger may be used to living in his multi-million dollar 6,809 square foot Windemere, Florida mansion (the 8 bedroom, 9 bathroom house was purchased for $2.4 million ten years ago - it's estimated to be worth around $5 million now), so we can only imagine how difficult it is for him to adjust to his new home while he tries to get his life back together. Of course, Tiger is trying to do all this while staying out of the public eye, which has to add even more stress to the situation.

Think we'll catch him out anytime soon? Or will the fences keep him hidden for the next month or so? Only time will tell...

Oops! It's Not Elin, It's Her Twin Sis Josefin!

No wonder Elin looked so happy yesterday -- it's not Elin, it's her twin sister Josefin!

Why Elin sent the kids out with her sis, we're not sure, but the group appeared to have a wonderful time at Sea World.

So just how do you tell these two apart? You tell me!


And speaking of mistaken identities, are we 100% sure the supposed first shot of Tiger in rehab is really him? Is the photo clear enough to be certain???

X17 Poll

Is This Really Tiger?

Seems like it's him -- same small calf muscles.
Doesn't really look like his body and you can't see his face.
Who knows!

X17 XCLUSIVE - Elin Takes The Kids To Sea World While Tiger's In Rehab

Elin Nordegren took Sam and Charlie to Sea World today while daddy Tiger downed coffee in rehab ...

The trio, along with a nanny and two bodyguards, took in the Shamu Show and sat in the Splash Zone!!! They covered up with protective plastic and waiting for the waterworks to begin and when the moment came, they were left at least partially dry!

An X17 photographer tells us:

    "Elin was so happy to be there with the kids. It looked like she was having a really good time and enjoying the show. When Shamu jumped and splashed them, they were laughing and the kids were cuddling close to their mom."

The crew didn't stay long at the park. They were escorted by a VIP guide from the theme park and by their two bodyguards, of course. They were taken swiftly out of the stadium and brought to a couple other indoor attractions -- brought in through the back doors of each. Elin and the kids spent about two hours there and then went straight home. No doubt baby Charlie was exhausted after such an exciting trip!

Our photog told us this about Elin's demeanor today:

    "This woman seems really strong -- she doesn't show any pain on her face at all. Not since the scandal broke have we seen her looking upset or in a bad mood. Elin was 100% happy today."

Tiger Woods Spotted In Mississippi Rehab

Jan 20, 2010 07:38 AM

Tiger Woods has been spotted at the Mississippi rehab he transferred to after leaving the Meadows in Arizona, as X17online first reported.

Although it's difficult to ID Tiger from the grainy photos obtained by RadarOnline, they show an unshaven man outside of the Gentle Path program, which is part of Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

A hat and a hoodie hide any possible injuries Tiger might have sustained from the accident.

We're glad that these pix seem to prove that Tiger is serious about getting help for his addiction, but we're definitely looking forward to seeing better photos soon.

Tiger Woods Moves To Mississippi Sex Rehab, Says Source

Jan 18, 2010 02:25 PM

X17 was the first to report back on December 29th that philandering husband slash golfer Tiger Woods checked into sex rehab at Arizona facility The Meadows...

Now, New York Times Magazine writer Benoit Denizet-Lewis - who has struggled with sex addiction himself - claims on his personal blog that Tiger is now at the Pine Grove/Gentle Path sex addiction treatment center in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Denizet-Lewis says that various news sources have also confirmed this.

The writer also admits that Tiger likely "began his treatment at The Meadows in Arizona, but then left."

Apparently, the same thing happened to David Duchovny, says Denizet-Lewis! That the actor started off at The Meadows but, after becoming concerned that his privacy wasn't being protected, moved to a less high-profile sex rehab treatment center.

Think Tiger is serious about saving his marriage? At the Mississippi rehab, a patient must sign a "celibacy contract," meaning you can't have sex with anyone OR masturbate while in treatment.
