    ...private equity billionaire who was a world-class swordsman...his conquests included Princess Di. He also coined the phrase, "Barbarians at the Gate."

    He was also the owner of IMG, home to Tiger Woods and Roger Federer.

    I was thinking the name sounded familiar and thought he had something to do with leveraged buyouts. Didn't know he owned IMG.

    Tiger left IMG last year when his agent left, but he was there for a long time. Fed is still with IMG, I'm pretty sure.

    I remember he played Pebble Beach with Vijay Singh for many years.

    Pretty impressive list of philanthropy in that story.
  8. Supposedly he paid for his law degree from Columbia with money he made gambling.
