She was 20 yrs old when she hooked up with Tiger and lasted for 2 yrs. Former bartender Brian Kimbrough told The Post that he blames Woods for stealing his vivacious gf, claiming the golfer invited her to his mansion for steamy hookups and incessantly called her on her cellphone.
Woods` name would come up on his girlfriend`s caller ID as "Mr. Brightside," said Kimbrough, who mixed drinks at the Roxy Night Club in Orlando in 2004 when then-girlfriend Julie Postle was first pursued by the golf great. "Mr. Brightside" is a song by the rock band The Killers and features lyrics about a jealous male lover.
Postle`s trysts and phone calls with the golfer continued even after Woods was married later that year, Kimbrough alleged. "One time, her phone rang, and it said a weird name on it -- `Mr. Brightside,` " Kimbrough said. "And I was like, `What the hell is this?` She grabbed the phone, smiled and said it was Tiger but didn`t answer it. But she played me the voice mail. It said, `Hey, it`s Tiger, just seeing how you`re doing. Give me a call.` "
Kimbrough said that when Postle finally `fessed up to the affair, she insisted Woods hadn`t married his Swedish wife, Elin Nordegren, for love.
"She said Tiger told her that his marriage was for publicity. She said it was for his image, and the tabloids and wasn`t real." He said Postle was a waitress at the Roxy when she met Woods and told a tale of calling him from the golfer`s home soon after.
Kimbrough said that when he and Postle broke up in 2005, she confessed to him that, at one point, the golfer had "invited her to Vegas, offered her money and said, `If you want to break up with your boyfriend, I can give you some money to get you on your feet.` "
Several of Kimbrough`s claims were verified by Nola Coles, the mother of Postle`s former Orlando roommate, Morgan Coles -- whose phone records, the mother said, also were sought because Tiger used to call Postle on Coles` phone, too.
"Tiger was obsessed, really hunted her," Nola Coles said. "He used to go into Roxy demanding Julie. `Where`s Julie? I want to see Julie."
"She was 20, and I said, `You`ve got to get a condo out of this,` " the mother said, "and she said, `Oh, no, I can`t do that to Tiger.` "
