Golf legend Tiger Woods has numerous well-deserved records under his name. The golfer has tons of fans and is one of the most loved golf stars in the world. Not only the people who watch the sport, but other golfers also have immense love and respect for the player.

Three famous personalities, who are also fans of the athlete, had joined him for a practice session for the Hero World Challenge. Justin Rose, Tino Martinez, and Derek Jeter showed up in the Bahamas on a Monday in 2016 and played a few shots with the 15-time major winner. Woods appeared to be giddily playing next to Jeter.
