Tiger douses Mark Rolfing with ice water: "I've always wanted to do this to media."

There was a Tiger Woods sighting in Verona, New York on Tuesday, when Tiger spoke at the sponsor reception for friend Notah Begay III's foundation challenge -- the NB3 Challenge.

Woods sat down for an interview with NBC golf announcer Mark Rolfing at one point, and while there wasn't any mention of Tiger's recent split with Sean Foley, Rolfing did ask Woods about his absence from this year's Ryder Cup team.

"It's disappointing, but I've been there before," Tiger said, referring to his absence from the 2008 team. "I'll miss the guys. . .the stories we tell; those are the kind of things we'll remember for the rest of our lives."

But Tiger didn't let Rolfing off too easy. On stage during his talk at the event, Tiger and Begay helped Rolfing and Oneida Indian Nation Representative Ray Halbritter do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Woods, predictably, took Rolfing.

"I've always wanted to do this to media," he said afterwards.
