Warren Buffett and Tiger Woods

Warren Buffet gave $100,000 in order to caddy for Tiger Woods at a charity golf event. “It wasn’t the hardest job,” Buffet told the Omaha World-Herald. “I mostly rode in the cart.” Woods suggested making a wager for “serious money” on the 18th hole, to which Buffet replied, “All money is serious, Tiger.” The bet was for $5.00, and Woods had to play the hole from his knees. Woods made bogey, and won the hole and the bet. After Buffet gave Woods the $5.00, he cleared his throat and said, “Aren’t you forgetting something?” Woods couldn’t imagine what it was. “My [caddy’s] 10%. You owe me 50¢.”
