Henrik Stenson steals Tiger Woods' thunder by stripping off for action
Swede Henrik Stenson briefly took the limelight from Tiger Woods when he stripped down to his underwear to play a shot at the WGC-CA Championship at Doral.
Down to basics: Henrick Stenson strips off to play out of deep mud at the third hole

Stenson's wayward drive on the third hole landed in muddy terrain near a water hazard and he decided to get down to basics rather than play the rest of his round in muddy clothes.
"I was only wearing two things when I hit the shot, my jocks and my golf glove," he told reporters.
"Shirt, trousers, socks, shoes, hat, the lot was off."
"Obviously, playing in Florida I didn't have any rain gear in the bag, so that option went out of the window and I felt that if I could hack it out, I could secure a five and that is what I did," said Stenson.
"Because of the mud I couldn't really afford to play in any of my clothes as they would have been a real mess down the last six or so holes so I had no option.
Stenson said he had no regrets about his unorthodox approach.
"I felt that I would definitely save a shot by actually playing the ball. If you are saving a shot, that has to be worth taking your shirt and trousers off," he said.
But the 32-year-old said he was expecting some ribbing.
"I'm sure I'll hear a few comments and once the pictures get out I'll hear a few more no doubt.
"I'll probably take that to the grave with me. I don't think I scared too many spectators off the course...I hope," he said.
"You never know, I might have a new endorsement with Playgirl or something like that."

13 Things Women Want in a Man
by: Patti Oar
You may think that women want someone who is buffed and tanned and looks like a bodybuilder model from GQ. Those things are nice and yes we like to look at those guys, but just like you don’t need for us to look like Victoria Secret models we don’t require it in our man. OK. The 13 most important qualities that women look for in a man are:
3. Nice Smile
4. Sense of Humor
8. Gainfully employed
9. Has own place
10. Owns a car
OK. First things first. Honesty is the NUMBER ONE trait that women look for in a man. That doesn’t mean to be brutally honest and tell her she looks fat. (Never do that) but we want to know that we can trust that what you are telling us is the truth. If you’ve lied in the past it will be a very cold day in Hell before she trusts you again. And she may want to check your phone messages and read your email and call you 10 times a day to feel secure that you’re trustworthy again. You may not like that but if you lie it may be the price you have to pay.
Intelligence: Women want to feel safe and protected and we want our men to be smart. Maybe even smarter than us. Women feel that your brain is your sexiest organ. So dazzle us with your brain and you will be surprised how stimulated we become. Kick her ass at “Jeopardy” and watch what happens.
Smile: We love your smile. We can’t get enough of it. It makes us want to touch you and kiss you. So brush and floss and see your dentist and keep your mouth kissably fresh.
Sense of Humor: If you can keep us laughing you are golden. We love to laugh and we love a man who can make us laugh. This goes back to the smart thing as well. You have to be smart to be humorous. We like a man who’s humor challenges us. Leave that 3 Stooges stuff for the guys. Women don’t appreciate 12 year old juvenile humor.
Manners: Little things like manners are very important. Women don’t want their man to drive up and reach over from the driver’s seat and open the passenger door or just wait for us to open the door. A little old fashioned chivalry goes a long way. Escort the lady to the car and open the door for her. We love to be treated like queens. It makes us feel like you think we’re special. And hopefully you do think she’s special. We love a man with manners. We know we can take him home and our parents will love him. We don’t want to have to worry about what you might do or say. We want to be with a man not a boy. That means no farting, belching, toe or nose picking, spitting, or smacking your lips when you eat. We want to know we can take you in public and we won’t be embarrassed. And don’t forget we also like to show you off to our girlfriends and we want them to approve. You want the girlfriends to think you’re a “Keeper”.
Sensitive: That whole thing about being “Sensitive” and getting in touch with your “Feminine Side” are all very true. A woman is waaaay more attracted to a man who isn’t afraid to show his feelings and be gentle and sensitive. We actually think that makes you more manly. A man who clams up and thinks being macho is what we want is very wrong. One of the things that is extremely attractive to a woman is when it’s obvious that you are attracted to us. There is nothing hotter than seeing how much we turn you on. Don’t be afraid to show that. But of course there are limits and this can easily be overdone. Be careful about showing things like that at work or you might find yourself in a sexual harassment situation. And if you decide to try to tip your hand to a woman and show your interest, remember to keep it subtle. No woman likes a STALKER or a HORNDOG! We love to know that we are getting to you, but not in an obnoxious way. You may have to make some changes in your behavior. But of course, they’ll be changes for the better and you will most likely be happier for it.
Sincerity: This is a little like honesty, but what I mean is if you need to change some of your behaviors to be more attractive to women then don’t just do it to get the girl. This is something that has to be real. If you think that’s not you, then maybe you should think about making a change. You can decide you don’t want to change, that you like yourself the way you are, but if that was working for you then you probably wouldn’t be reading this article. You were drawn to this piece because you must truly want to know how to be better with women and if you sincerely do then you may need to take an honest look at yourself and decide what you want because it has to be real.
Employed: OK. This is a no-brainer, but truthfully there are some men out there without jobs that think they can get all the women they want. I have no idea what makes them think that, but their egos are on overtime. Women need security and we want a man who can provide for us. That doesn’t mean we don’t want to work, but it does mean that we want to know that you are a responsible MAN.
Has Own Place: OK. Matthew McConaughey was really cute in Failure to Launch but that was a comedy. Seriously we don’t want to have a sleepover at your Mom’s house. Having your own place just shows us again that you are a responsible adult. And it does help if your place is decorated nicely. I don’t mean you have to hire a decorator, but we’re not drawn to frathouse chic. Impress us with your style. Again we want MEN not BOYS!
Has Own Car: This may not be important if you live in New York or in a place where the public transportation makes owning a car unnecessary but in most of the world you need a car to pick up your date and take her out. It is important to mention here that even though we love luxury cars we don’t need that in our man. Women love men with all kinds of cars, but FYI keep your car clean (especially the inside). Nothing says SLOB more than a dirty car. Take out the fast food wrappers and keep it neat and smelling nice.
Affectionate: We really do love to touch and be touched. And I am not talking sexually here. But try holding her hand when she’s not expecting it or gently rubbing her back. Little touchy things like that mean a lot. Rub her arm when you’re reading the paper or do little things like foot and hand massages. Women love that.
Be Considerate: We appreciate the little things like holding a door open or not walking ahead of us. If we’re sleeping make sure you turn out the light when you leave. Show her you care by picking up after yourself. When you get some dessert out of the fridge ask if she’d like some or make sure you leave some for her. Just basic consideration is so important to us.
Thoughtfulness: This may sound like consideration, but it goes a little further. Being thoughtful of her needs goes a long way. Maybe give her a call from work just to see how she’s doing. While we love that we don’t want to be smothered with a bunch of calls all day long. Bring something home for her when you go to the store, like some fresh flowers (I know that’s cliché, but that’s because it works) or maybe some of her favourite ice cream…just because. This shows us that you are thinking of us and that makes us feel important and special.
Those 2 words important and special should be burned into your brain. If you can always make a woman feel important and special you will be an irresistible Chick Magnet.

Whites And Smalls hit YouTube - Vance's Underwear Dance:
Men of all ages are increasingly aware of the choices that are available when it comes to underwear.
OK, so you may think most men don’t care because nobody can see what’s beneath their trousers.
It used to be so simple – briefs or boxers? Black or White? Where’s the nearest M&S?
Well things seem to be changing. The post ‘metro-sexual’ man may well be trying to regain their machismo, but they are clinging on to the moisturiser, ‘useful’ man-bag, and quality underpants!
Why the change? Any of the below may be the answer:
1.The David Beckham effect – following the high profile poster campaign, briefs are seriously back in fashion after a couple of decades. This may not directly influence a heterosexual guy, but it certainly influences the wives and girlfriends who are often responsible for the purchasing of the underwear.
2.The baggy trouser trend – allowing the waistband (and often more) to be exposed – therefore making the ‘right’ underwear more essential. Calvin Klein is the most popular choice when it comes to displaying a brand name.
3.Fun – colour and pattern are the latest trends (some very retro patterns in the case of the Bjorn Borg Label!). The Calvin Klein 365 range have really caught on – with Joe Swash (ex-Eastender) displaying his in the Jungle, and Zac Efron (High School Musical) displaying his in the tabloids whilst wandering down the beach with his co-star girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens.
4.It’s not just the youngsters either - Jeremy Paxman famously spoke out against his usual high street brand, complaining they no longer provided ‘adequate support’. He said that ‘these are matters of great concern to the men of Britain’.
5.On-line shopping. The increase in on-line shopping has brought a bigger range of options to men – they are no longer restricted to just visiting a small display in the corner of a Department Store.
So who knows why exactly, but increasingly men do care – and so do we!

Secret behind bulge in mens underwear is apparently bread
Melbourne, Oct 23 (ANI): When it comes to getting the perfect pose or look, even a piece of bread will come in handy, according to Make Me A Supermodel stylist Tiana Wallace. According to Tiana, bread is very vital to a man in underwear, as just one slice wedged in the front of a pair of briefs will give the sought-after smooth look.
Though Confidential will not confirm if David Beckham used the method for his steamy Armani campaign earlier this year, finalist Rhys Uhlich was chosen to make a test-run.From the taping, which is to be aired on the October 23 episode of Make Me A Supermodel, there was proof enough about what Wallace said. The secret trick left host Jennifer Hawkins amazed that it actually worked. I actually learnt something that day, the Daily Telegraph quoted her as saying. (ANI)

Man wears underwear as a mask
November 2008. A 48-year-old man who tried to hold up golf pro shop — while wearing men's underwear as a mask — was apprehended by customers who chased him down with their golf cart after he tried to flee across the driving range, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.
On the bright side, though, the suspect was credited with a one-under pair.
