For what it’s worth, US Weekly, the premier destination for all recent Tiger Woods gossip, reports “the seemingly tipsy pro golfer ‘looked uncomfortable’”at a Met Gala after-party in NYC Monday night.

Apparently, he embarrassed his girlfriend Lindsey Vonn, who is launching a new cosmetics and perfume line, according to Tiger. She had to help Woods walk to the door, because, you know, he was *so* hammered. I hope he got absolutely trashed. That’s what I — and any other semi-sane individual — would’ve done.

Last evening Tiger and the Olympic gold medalist skier made their red carpet debut as a couple at the chicest event of the year, the Met Ball. Woods, who won The Players in 2001, practiced at TPC Sawgrass for this week’s championship on Tuesday afternoon.

The New York Daily News follows up on the initial US Weekly report:

But as the drinks took effect, Woods supposedly got up and danced awkwardly before grabbing Vonn’s butt. She laughed about the affectionate tug but soon became a bit more serious as the night went on.

By 2 a.m., when the couple started to exit the party, Woods apparently fell while attempting to walk up a small flight of steps. According to a witness, his tumble caused him to freeze until a stern-faced Vonn came to his rescue, helping him to his feet and guiding him on their way out. Woods was reportedly swaying a bit after the fall.

These pictures from Splash are pretty damning. Good for Tiger! Hope he had fun!
