Nice try, Alf, but I don't think "donkey"'s in the Chinese zodiac!

That's right! He's actually "Eldrick Tont Woods". (I was originally going to put "Eldrick" as the clue but then found out that googling for "Eldrick" took you straight to his Wikipedia page!)

That was a very clever clue! I mean, who would not have thought "Tont" was anybody's middle name? Now that I know, the sum total of all the interesting middle names I know of goes up to 2. (The other one I know of is "Tiffany", middle name of actor Richard Gere.)

That leaves three still to be found (for dog, goat, horse in some order):

Ah, do you have "goat" for one of them? It seems to have alternative names in English.

No goat?! No wonder I'm having trouble ...

I. What is the purpose of a sheepshank knot?
