The builder of Tiger Woods' new restaurant in Jupiter, Fla., said recently that he'd been told that Nike owns the rights to the name "Tiger Woods."

According to Woods' agent Mark Steinberg, that's not true.

"I can’t imagine how this could have been communicated this way. It is wholly inaccurate and categorically false," Steinberg said to Golf Channel.

"Tiger owns his own name and always had. He can use his name in any form he chooses. Nike would confirm that if asked."

Nike did just that after Steinberg released his statement.

In other news, Tiger Woods is likely looking for a new builder for his future second restaurant!
