Appearances of Tiger Woods in MAD
MAD Magazine #361 • USA • 1st Edition - New York
Mort Drucker illustrated Tiger Woods' first major MAD appearance, based on a gag by John Caldwell, for the back cover of MAD #361 (September '97).
MAD Magazine #427 • USA • 1st Edition - New York
Tiger Woods, as depicted by Tom Richmond, made a cameo for this portion of the Desmond Devlin-penned "MAD's Proposed Rule Changes For The Upcoming NASCAR Season" (MAD #427, March '03). Among the proposed rule changes: "From this day forward, NASCAR drivers must agree to call PGA golfers 'athletes,' and the golfers must agree to do the same favour for them."
MAD Magazine #434 • USA • 1st Edition - New York
Tiger probably wishes things had remained "twice as boring" in the six years following this appearance in "MAD's Deck of Least-Wanted Americans." Drew Friedman illustrated Woods for this portion of the Desmond Devlin-Frank Jacobs piece, which ran in MAD #434 (October '03).
MAD Magazine #503 • USA • 1st Edition - New York
MAD has tackled celebrity marital infidelity before, but rarely with the sharp edge featured in its depictions of the 2009 Tiger Woods-Elle Nordegren meltdown. The faux-magazine cover "Tiger Cheat" originally ran on MAD's blog, The Idiotical, before appearing in MAD #503 (May '10). In addition to "Tiger Cheat," MAD #503 (May '10) also featured this devastating two-pager by writer Scott Maiko and artist Ty Templeton, "The Tiger Woods Mistress Mini-Golf Fun Center." Yes, the entire thing was roughly as subtle as the puns and imagery included here. And yes, it was a modern-day MAD classic.
