Woman fined for Tiger Woods dash

A woman who stripped to her underwear and raced onto the 18th green to kiss and hug Tiger Woods five months ago in the Open has been fined $400.

Yvonne Robb, 21, was fined $160 for the dash July 15, and $240 more for assisting a man two weeks later who sold photographs of the her adventure to a British newspaper.

Robb, wearing only a black bra and matching panties, startled Woods as he was standing waiting to putt in the Open in Carnoustie.

"She was dared by one of her friends to run on to the 18th green," Billy Warden, representing Robb, told the Arbroath Sheriff Court. "The drink getting the better of her, she ran. I understand the player smiled and said, 'Thank you.' "

Outside court, Robb, who works as a dancer in a club in Aberdeen, did not rule out another show next year during the British Open in St. Andrews.

"I'm going to have to surprise you," she said.
