This promotional gem was taken prior to the 2006 HSBC World Match Play in London.

Why it qualifies:

-- Because it's a reminder that WORLD Match Play Championships have been played in countries other than the U.S.

-- Because it's a reminder that Woods used to be on good terms with HSBC.

Related: Why was Michael Jordan chasing Sergio at St. Andrews?

-- Because Tiger is rocking one of those mock turtle necks he used to love. Not that we miss them. . .

-- Because "Frank" the headcover is riding shotgun.

-- Because are those spikeless golf shoes years before they became commonplace? Trendsetter!

-- Because this could be a scene from a musical. Doesn't it look like he's about to break into song and dance?

-- Because look at the license plate! HSBC spared no expense.

-- Because it's probably the last time Tiger ever used public transportation.
