Tiger. Steve Martin. Buy Their Houses.

Greatness isn’t always easy to achieve. You’ve really got to earn it by doing something, well, pretty great. Like winning an Oscar. Or winning 79 PGA tournaments. But if all else fails, you can always just buy or rent one of these houses that belonged to someone great. That’s a possibility.
