Video: Tiger's appearance on Jimmy Fallon

March 17, 2011

In case you were wondering if Tiger Woods is capable of laughing at himself, an answer came Wednesday night when the former world No. 1 made his first appearance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" since 2009.

As Fallon noted, it took a form of courage for Woods to make an appearance on a late-night comedy show, especially since -- as the clip below reveals -- Fallon didn't want to dwell solely on Woods' swing changes with Sean Foley.

The interview continues here:

Since the purpose of Woods' appearance was to promote his new "PGA Tour 12" video game, there was also the requisite demonstration -- alongside Amy Poehler -- of the game, which for the first time, features Augusta National.

How did the evening go in Woods' eyes? Apparently well enough for him to tweet about it.

"First win of the year, unfortunately it was against @jimmyfallon," he wrote on Twitter.
