Tiger Woods boat: Yacht to be US Open base in Hamptons

Tiger Woods will rest in ultimate style at the 2018 U.S. Open.

If Woods wants to have company-which he's obviously been known to do-he'll have ample room for it in the 6,500-square-foot yacht's master suite or in one of its six other bedrooms.

The USGA released its tee times for the U.S. Open next week at Shinnecock Hills, and it offered two stacked groups for the morning and afternoon.

Since returning to the PGA Tour in December of a year ago, Woods has climbed his way back up the FedEx Cup rankings to 50th in the world.

He also won the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and the 2002 championship at Bethpage.

Ghanaian government to dissolve football association after bribery allegations
Ghana's information minister Mustapha Abdul-Hamid said the government would dissolve the GFA because of the "widespread nature of the apparent rot".

The vessel also includes a gym, movie theatre, full bar, eight-person hot tub and a scuba decompression chamber.

The three-time USA open champion reportedly tried to part with the 6,500-square-foot yacht for $25 million around the time of his highly publicized divorce from Nordegren, though many experts questioned whether the boat was worth such an amount.

Woods bought the yacht when he married in 2004, and unsuccessfully tried to sell it in 2011. Alas, either there were no takers or Woods changed his mind, as he's clung onto the Privacy, despite it's $2 million yearly upkeep.

Mickelson will hope to atone for his series of near misses in the tournament, including the last time it was played at Shinnecock Hills in 2004, while Spieth is missing only the PGA Championship, now held by his close-friend Thomas.
