Golf has a pretty elitist reputation, but one photo of a bad shot by Tiger Woods at the Ryder Cup has introduced the world to Cigar Guy, an unidentified man with a mustache who attended the Ryder Cup and looks an awful lot like Groucho Marx. Cigar Guy was captured by Daily Mail photographer Mark Pain, who took a photo just before his camera was struck by Tiger’s ball. Now, Cigar Guy rules the internets.

Through the magic of photoshoppery, Cigar Guy has been found in all sorts of iconic/historic sports photographs, and montaged on YouTube to the classic song “Eye of the Tiger” — “Eye of the Tiger,” Tiger Woods, I just got that! Here it is:

This is further proof of Tiger’s unmatchable star power.  There could be no Phil Mickelson Cigar Guy, no Lee Westwood Cigar Guy.

Yet in the blink of an eye, Cigar Guy has gone from nobody, to a favorite for the American Mustache Institute’s 2010 “Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year” Award.

As for the Daily Mail photog, the ball hit his camera, then bounced off his chest.  He was uninjured, but also apparently unaware of Cigar Guy. According to the Mail, “Woods was furious about his blunder, but neither he nor caddie Steve Williams objected to Pain’s position. The Americans accepted that the ball had hit the intrepid photographer only because Tiger’s effort, from rain-soaked rough, had been so badly struck.
