TIGER Woods has lashed out at veteran golf writer Dan Jenkins for penning a fake satirical interview with the 14-time major winner , describing the parody as “a grudge-fueled piece of character assassination”.

Jenkins, who was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2011, wrote the piece for Golf Digest and among various topics he took aim at Woods’ reputation as a bad tipper and his failed marriage.

Woods has rarely taken exception to negative articles previously but on Tuesday he responded in a column on baseball player Derek Jeter’s website, The Players Tribune. “Did you read Dan Jenkins’ interview with me in the latest Golf Digest? I hope not. Because it wasn’t me,” Woods wrote in a piece entitled ‘Not True, Not Funny”.

“It was some jerk he created to pretend he was talking to me. That’s right , Jenkins faked an interview, which fails as parody, and is really more like a grudge-fueled piece of character assassination.

“Journalistically and ethically, can you sink any lower?”

Woods went on to say he felt he had a good sense of humor and was “more than willing” to laugh at himself.

“In this game, you have to,” he wrote. “I’ve given lots of interviews to journalists in all that time , more than I could count.

“All athletes know that we will be under scrutiny from the media. But this concocted article was below the belt,” said Woods, who has not played since his missed cut at the PGA Championship in August as he recovers from a back injury.

Jenkins wrote his comments in a column titled ‘My (Fake) Interview With Tiger’, followed by an asterisk and the sub-title: ‘Or how it plays out in my mind’.

In the article, the 84-year-old Jenkins ‘questioned’ Woods on the car crash in late 2009 that led to revelations about his multiple extramarital affairs and the break-up of his marriage.

Q. You haven’t talked about it, but after all of those New York Post front pages during the scandal Adidas Superstar Flower Lotus Print UK , what’s the moral of your story?

A. That’s easy. Don’t get caught.

Q. You named your yacht Privacy. Because you’re a worldwide celebrity, do you really expect and demand privacy?

A. I thought about renaming it Serenity, but that pretty much went out the door when the nine-iron hit the window of the Escalade.

After Woods had published his response, Jenkins tweeted: “My next column for Tiger: defining parody and satire. I thought I let him off easy.”

British finance minister George Osborne said on Thursday he will nominate Christine Lagarde for a second term as managing director of the International Monetary Fund.

"At a time when the world faces what I've called a dangerous cocktail of risks, I believe Christine has the vision, energy and acumen to help steer the global economy through the years ahead Women's Adidas Superstar Supercolor Pharrell Pink ," Osborne said in a statement.

Lagarde has no obvious challengers and has said she is open to serving another term. But last month a French court ordered her to face trial over her role in a payout of some 400 million euros ($434 million) to businessman Bernard Tapie.

Accused of alleged negligence over the Tapie affair while she was serving as France's finance minister, Lagarde has said she will appeal against the court's decision.

Osborne had previously nominated Lagarde for her first term in 2011.

At a briefing in Davos, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls added an apparent message of support for Lagarde after being asked whether France backed her reappointment.

"French authorities support Christine Lagarde," Valls said according to an English translation of his words. He added that the finance ministry would be making a statement in Paris on Friday.

TORONTO, Jan. 1 (Xinhua) -- Hundreds of brave people in Toronto, the most populous city in Canada Discount Adidas Superstar 2 Bling White Gold , on Friday took an icy dip in Lake Ontario to greet New Year of 2016 for a good reason.

The Toronto Polar Bear Club dip, which has entered the 11th year, takes place in Canada on New Year's Day, when thousands take the occasion to indulge in some well-thought-of momentary insanity.

Friday's dip was held at Toronto's Sunnyside Beach on Lake Ontario, one of North America's coldest lakes, with participation of more than 500 people.

The temperature with wind chill was minus 8 degrees Celsius in the day and the lake was beyond cold with the shoreline ice-encrusted. A reason to partake in this icy folly was to have fun Adidas Superstar East River White Blue Sale , test endurance and raise money for charity, according to organizers.

Since 2005, the Toronto Polar Bear Club has hosted the event to raise fund for Habitat for Humanity, which helps build simple, affordable and decent homes for families in need in the city. They are hoping to raise 65,000 Canadian dollars (about 46 Adidas Superstar East River UK Black White ,800 U.S. dollars) this year. Since its beginning, the event has brought in nearly 300,000 Canadian dollars (about 216,000 U.S. dollars) in donations, said the organizers.

Habitat for Humanity GTA is currently working on 47 homes across eight different building sites, 27 of which will be completed by the end of 2016. "We know the impact is transformational Adidas Superstar 2 Black White Women's Shoes ," said Habitat for Humanity GTA CEO Ene Underwood.

Polar Bear Dip co-founder Mike Bonneveld said the event has grown in the last 11 years with its inaugural plunge starting with only 15 people. But over the years, more and more people have been enchanted by the New Year's Day event, both local residents and visiting travelers.

"It's exhilarating, it's refreshing. It's quite an experience, everyone should do at least once," a participant from Australia told Xinhua. "Every (new) year Adidas Women's Rita Ora Superstar Slip On Black Gold Online , 12 noon, Sunnyside Park in Toronto, Canada. I highly recommend it to anyone, visiting or local."

The event in Toronto is just one of many dips taking place across the country. One of the oldest and most established Polar Bear Dips takes place on Canada's west coast at Vancouver's English Bay, where they have been doing it since 1920.
