Tiger Woods, investor: bullish on Dubai and Google
Tiger Woods is known as one of the smartest and most disciplined athletes in the history of the world and, given that, he might have what it takes to be a successful investor.
In an interview with CNBC, Woods said that he is long Google and has been for awhile. He's also partnered with Joe Louis and Ernie Els on a resort in the Bahamas, and has been impressed with the development of Dubai since he first played there in 2001.
What's interesting about Woods is that, as busy as he is with all his endorsement deals, new family, and golf, he sounds like he's pretty on top of his financial life.
There's a lesson in there: if Tiger Woods has time to follow his money personally and not put all his faith in an advisor, so does pretty much everyone else.
