That time Tiger Woods taught Jennifer Aniston how to play golf on "The Tonight Show"

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

In April 1998, Tiger Woods had relinquished his World No. 1 ranking to Ernie Els, and after a four-win season the year before, had yet to win on the PGA Tour in eight starts. He was undergoing his first swing change with Butch Harmon, and at times, things turned into a bit of a grind.

But it wasn't all hard work. Tiger took some time out of his schedule to kick back on Jay Leno's "The Tonight Show." He even treated Jennifer Aniston to a free golf lesson in front of the world. Here she is looking rather confident, presumably drawing inspiration from Tiger Woods' happy face.
