Tiger Woods has a lot of fans, many of the rabid for the world No. 1. (And there's nothing wrong with that.)
To show off their devotion to Woods, some fans go to extreme lengths. An Illinois fan happily displayed that for Woods on Wednesday ahead of this week's BMW Championship just outside of Chicago.
An unidentified fan took the vanity license plate off his car, sharing with Woods the TI GR WDS tag. For his trouble, Woods gave the fan a ball, according to Steve DiMeglio of USA Today.
Naturally, we here at Track Tiger decided to see if that license plate was available in other fine states in our union.
Pennsylvania? You betcha, as TIGRWDS. That's good in Nevada, too. Florida also. Arizona has it. In Maine, you can only have six characters on your vanity plate, so TGRWDS is available. It's pure in Michigan. Same for Missouri.
And that's where we stopped. Basically, if you want it, you can have it in any other state.
As it turns out, however, this fan probably got TI GR WDS because TGRWDS was not available in Illinois.
