Tiger Woods stays on his £15million superyacht Privacy in New York for the PGA Championship

MASTERS champion Tiger Woods has docked his incredible £15million superyacht in New York ahead of the upcoming PGA Championship.

The former world No 1 has jokingly referred to his amazing 155ft vessel as his "dinghy" in the past.

But he seems all business as he attempts to complete the second leg of the grand slam with victory at Bethpage Black in a little over two weeks.

According to marinetraffic.com, Woods' yacht, named 'Privacy', arrived in Oyster Bay, NY, yesterday. The marina is about 13 miles from the golf course.

The amazing boat, which Woods bought in 2004, measures 6,500 sq ft and can sleep ten guests in five state rooms.

There are also four cabins that house the ship's nine crew members.

In addition to that there is a fully-equipped gym on board, a three-person elevator to get between floors, a massive eight-person Jacuzzi and a bar.

There is also a scuba station and still room on the yacht to carry three jet skis, two ocean kayaks and two Vespa scooters.

Really, it's no wonder that the whole thing costs just over £1.5m a year to run.

Privacy has a top speed of 18 knots and our interior shots show how it is finished in a classy cherry woodwork.

Despite the convenience of a lift, there is a sweeping staircase on board with transparent steps and a cherry handrail.

Woods won the 2002 US Open at Bethpage Black when he held off Sergio Garcia in the final round.

He has not teed it up in competition since completing sport's greatest comeback with his Augusta triumph last month.

And no wonder.

Woods, 43, says the win took a lot out of him and his efforts have left him "waddling like a duck".
