Pro-Ams, Late Night, Tiger Jam, and one unforgettable TRL appearance. Tiger Woods' run-ins with celebrity over the years have been various and hilarious—a snapshot of a kid growing not only into a legend, but also his own jeans. So this week, in honor of Tiger's inaugural Celebrity Cup triumph at the Genesis Open, where he toppled the competition alongside Kid Rock, Mark Wahlberg, Jerry Rice, Larry Fitzgerald, and Paige Spiranac, we decided to a look back at Big Cat's best (and most awkward) celebrity encounters ever. Let's fire up the time machine, shall we?
