Taking Pictures of Tiger Woods Golfing Is Forbidden, Even for Serena Williams

Serena Williams can do a lot of things mere mortals cannot do. None of them, however, include taking pictures of Tiger Woods golfing. 

The tennis star has more money, talent and athleticism than most. Yet, she still can't snap a pic of the famed golfer. 

CBS Sports brings us a wonderful tale of frustration from the Honda Classic, a tournament that seems to be teeming with the stuff. 

Here is a GIF that may anger some of you hipsters who like to take a picture of every last waking moment of your existence, even capturing the lighting on that burger you are about to eat.

I have to think some of you who have been caught snapping off a pic at the golf course might be amused, though.

Poor Williams was rather distraught over the experience and took to Twitter

Serena Williams @serenawilliams

Ok at this Golf tournament. Just saw @tigerwoods I understand NO golf Apparently u can't take pics. This security for mad and yelled at me

I am sure the tennis star will get over what is nothing more than a silly moment when a tiny rule was enforced sternly. 

This is, however, just a sign of how things are going at the golf tournament. On Friday, Rory McIlroy left in frustration during a dismal round. 

He would later say he had been suffering from wisdom tooth pain and couldn't continue golfing, via ESPN

McIlroy just can't seem to golf, and Williams can't capture any memories on her smart phone. The Honda Classic may go down as one of the bigger downers of the season. 

So, you see, celebrities are just like you and me. Sure, they may have huge mansions and expensive cars. Their vacations may resemble something you spend your life savings on, but they can't take pictures of Tiger Woods either. 

There is something comforting in that. 

Hit me up on Twitter for more swagtastic endeavors.
