The Enemy List of Tiger ... and his mother!

While Tiger Woods has spent a career lacking a true rival, he's used an assortment of adversaries to his advantage. 

Golf Digest Contributing Editor Tom Callahan touched on this in his book, In Search of Tiger: A Journey Through Golf with Tiger Woods, in a passage about Woods and his mother, Kultida: 

"If you cross them, you are dead. They are like Joe DiMaggio that way...Tida never forgives, Tiger seldom does; neither of them ever forgets. 

"They revel in paybacks for the rest of their enemies' lives." Any slight -- even those imagined or innocuous -- does not go unnoticed. Hence the Nixon-like enemies list Woods has developed through the years. Here is a partial list:

Steve Williams

Williams, Woods' former caddie, has come out with a book in which he says Woods' occasional mistreatment made him feel "like a slave." 
 This was after Williams taunted Woods by saying a win with Adam Scott was "the best win of my life" -- an obvious shot at the former employer who made him wealthy. 
Williams compounded his bad form at a caddie awards dinner during the WGC-HSBC Champions when he explained his Bridgestone celebration this way: "My aim was to shove it right up that black [expletive]."
