Tiger Woods isn't competing, but he is meeting with third graders

By

It’s been more than a year since Tiger Woods took to a course to compete in a PGA Tour event. Since then he’s opened some courses in a ceremonial round and spent most of his time rehabilitating his multiple back injuries.

That doesn’t necessarily mean that Tiger is completely out of the public eye, however. It’s just that the public is significantly smaller, in some cases in a literal physiological sense.

As reported by the Golf Channel, Woods was the speaker for career day in his daughter, Sam Woods’, third-grade class at Limestone Creek Elementary School in Orlando. More specifically, it was the students in Mrs. Todd’s class that received a tour de force lecture from Woods about his years as a professional golfer, with the school’s official Twitter account and the personal account for principal Maria Lloyd both releasing photos from Woods’ appearance.

It’s worth noting that the official Limestone Creek account didn’t even specifically call out Tiger Woods as one of the speakers. That’s really saying something about the quality of the guests that Mrs. Todd’s class could pull in. Who else was there, Florida Gov. Rick Scott?

No matter. For one day, Tiger Woods was back getting the sheer rapt attention he so often did on the courses of innumerable majors. This time, he just didn’t have any clubs, and the audience was quite a bit younger.
