Football: Eldrick's Open Win Was out of This World


Byline: ALAN McCABE TAKES YOUR CALLS

TIGER WOODS is a multi-millionaire Grand Slam winner at 24. He's probably the greatest golfer of all time - but his real name is Eldrick!

Even his dodgy moniker didn't stop golf fans calling the Hotline to pay tribute to the new Open champion.
