Tiger Woods hangs out with Maverick McNealy, Patrick Rodgers on sidelines of Stanford game en route to Napa

There's understandably a lot of excitement about Tiger Woods' return to the PGA Tour, as he plans to tee it up for the first time in more than a year this week at the Safeway Open in Napa.

It looks like Tiger coordinated the trip with a stop to his alma mater in Northern California since he was on the sidelines for the Stanford football game against No. 16-ranked Washington State.

Though the Cardinal weren't very competitive in the game against Washington State, Tiger spent some time with Stanford senior golfer Maverick McNealy and former Cardinal golfer Patrick Rodgers, who will both tee it up at the Safeway Open as well.

Looks like Tiger was in a good mood at the game, evidenced by the photos posted on social media.

Here's the 14-time major winner with Stanford swimmer Maya DiRado and her teammates.
