Tiger Woods might be coughing up some of the $87,000 he's earned this year on the PGA Tour. All of it, actually.

Woods company, ETW, was being sued for failing to provide a company called Gotta Have It Golf with a certain number of autographs and photographs.

President of Gotta Have It Golf, Bruce Matthews, said Woods was in breach of a 2001 (2001!) agreement.

The jury agreed, according to the Miami Herald:

"The six-person all-female jury awarded $668,000 in damages to Matthews' company, but interest will increase the total to about $1.3 million, according to Eric Isicoff, one of Matthews' attorneys."

I would make a comment about the the all-female jury and Tiger but that seems a bit too easy.

Woods testified for 45 minutes in court on Monday and his company is expected to appeal the decision.

According to the article, Isicoff was pleased with the outcome.

"The behavior of ETW Corporation has been reprehensible and we are very pleased with the jury's verdict."
