Sporting News;12/30/2005, Vol. 229 Issue 52, p10
The article presents the author's experience on witnessing golf player Tiger Woods in action. For the author, an opportunity arose to do something every sports fan must do before he grabs a seat in that great 19th hole in the sky--walk a round with Woods, in his case at the Target World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California. There is great responsibility that goes with spending 18 holes with Woods, beyond the standard request to be quiet that is acceptable for most golfers. Woods attracts a massive gallery happy to see him--about 1,000 people flocked to him on the tournament's opening day. Conversation, taking photographs and autographs are not allowed.
