Tiger Woods has once again been exposed.
No, it’s not another woman coming forward with illicit details of a tryst with the golfer. It’s a shirtless, beefcake photo shoot for Vanity Fair shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.
The spread accompanying the cover (which also has a pumped-up Woods pumping some iron) includes an essay by Pulitzer Prize winner Buzz Bissinger that highlights some early warning signs leading up to the sports legend’s dramatic conversion into tabloid and late-night fodder.
“He exhibited the same superhuman confidence off the golf course that he exhibited on it, apparently convinced he would never be caught despite the stupid sloppiness at the end—text messages, voice-mail messages,” the essay read. “He deluded himself into thinking he could be something that he wasn’t: untouchable.”
