Had to do a double take on this one; Tiger Woods doesn't own his name!  

Apparently Woods found that out during the building of his new restaurant in Jupiter Florida. According to an SI report:

"The developer was asked about the cumbersome name, The Woods Jupiter: Sports and Dining Club. He referred to it as Woods Jupiter and expects that's what most people will call it. Mastroianni said he was told that Nike 'has the rights to the name Tiger Woods,' which prevented Woods using his first and last name in the restaurant name."
Only in America! But wait, it gets better.

"Mastroianni said that anytime he wants to use Woods's name in a press release or anything similar he needs permission from Woods's business people. 'It's over the top,' he said."
Wonder if he tried "Eldrick's Eatery"?
