Tiger Woods gave some lucky guy a putting lesson and now he can't miss
Golf fans were saddened devastated to learn Tiger Woods wouldn't play in this week's Hero World Challenge, but the 15-time major champ is still fulfilling his job as host in the Bahamas. And apparently, he's taking those duties very seriously.
On the eve of the tournament, a video of Woods giving a pro-am participant a private putting lesson spread around Golf Twitter. And it's quite something to see.
Tiger really looks into helping this lucky guy out. And, of course, by lucky guy, we mean a lucky and probably very rich guy who bought a spot in the day's festivities. Tiger assumes a crouch behind him (Back, knee, foot, etc. looking good!) at various points, helps line the dude up, offers him words of encouragement, and even gives him a fist bump at one point. Tiger! What a great guy!
And you know what? It looks like it worked because the guy couldn't miss with Woods watching. OK, so that's a slight exaggeration because we can only actually see where one of his putts wound up—but that one putt went in! And Tiger gave him a fist bump after what looked like a lengthier attempt so at the very least it must have been a good lag. Anyway, have a look for yourself:
That guy looks completely chill, but that has to be the greatest couple minutes of his life. Getting a private putting lesson from the GOAT?! What could be better?!
Well, getting a private putting lesson from Tiger AND then getting to watch him actually play golf up close. Maybe, hopefully, next year.
