In the macho world of sports these preening princes of the sports courts and athletic fields stand out. Concerned as much about sartorial style as box scores, these “styletes” are just as likely to be primping in front of the mirror as hitting the practice field.

Forbes is reporting that Tiger Woods is officially the first athlete to ever break the $1 billion mark. The milestone came after Forbes raked in $10 million for winning the FedEx Cup last weekend. Woods has been the highest paid athlete for sometime–bringing in nearly $128 million in 2007, according to Sports Illustrated, but reaching a billion dollars in the heart of his career before high-earning icons like Michael Jordan is a huge accomplishment. Woods’ income comes from a variety of outlets: in addition to prize money, he gets paid big dollars for endorsements, bonuses, appearance fees and designing golf courses. At just 33, Woods is sure to continue to see his bank account soar.

World’s Longest Golf Course – The Nullarbor Links Golf Course will be the world’s longest golf course when complete. The course will span 848 miles, two time zones, and have roughly the same land area as the state of Kansas. While one might scratch their head at such an idea, the goal of Nullarbor Links is to become a mecca for golf in Australia, a destination where a golfer can play an entirely different style of golf. The world’s longest golf course will be a par 71 course, with each hole separated by as much as 100km. The entire course should take golfers around three or four days to complete. We ask you– is this just some sort of clever gimmick, or is it a valuable addition to the world of golf? Let us know in the comments…

The designers at Surf-Rodz took on a new adventure to bring skateboarding back to its basics. Together with teak experts at Proteak, Surf-Rodz have created the Olo Gun, an exclusive 72-inch longboard skate deck that has been designed for the roughest terrains. Based on Tom Blake’s surfboard designs from the 30s, the sleek longboard is crafted from a long piece of sustainable grown teak and sports a dangerously pointy shape. A weapon that invites for an adrenaline shot, Olo Gun comes with either a natural oil finish or Brazilian rosewood oil. Nothing more, as simple as that. [via Surf-Rodz]

A bowling shrine unlikely to attract the staggering, distended bellies and Bud Light Lime-infused sweaty sheen sopped off hobby leaguers at the alleys that populate most of this country, New York’s newly renovated Brooklyn Bowl is also part restaurant, bar and venue and looks like a ball.
Inhabiting the 23,000 square-foot former warehouse home of Hecla Iron Works, the alley was painstakingly retrofitted to house 16 pristine lanes and a 600-capacity performance space. Touted as the world’s first bowling alley built for L.E.E.D certification, Brooklyn Bowl is wind-powered and uses LED lights, reclaimed cork flooring, recycled truck tire stage flooring and re-purposed wood and glass throughout. Sixteen flat-screen TVs are spread throughout the alley, along with nine projectors and eight HD Cineflex screens and a state-of-the art stage lighting and sound system. The best part: Brooklyn Bowl’s “no bottle” or can policy, which means the bar stocks beers worth pouring into a glass. [via brooklynbowl, pics by Adam Macchia]
