Tiger Woods gave 18-year-old Nepalese sensation Pratima Sherpa a private lesson

Published

on

As you may have heard, 18-year-old Pratima Sherpa aspires to be the first Nepalese professional golfer. The story of her attempt to rise from almost unimaginable poverty to the professional ranks is the subject of ESPN’s short film “A Mountain to Climb.”

Visiting the United States for the premier of the film, Sherpa got a 30-minute private lesson with a 14-time major champion, as none other than Tiger Woods invited to the Medalist Club for a meeting, per ESPN.

Woods tweeted these shots of the meeting and the lesson. Regardless of whether you are/were a hardcore Tiger fanatic, it’s nice to see him settling into his “ambassador for the game” role.

Sherpa’s incredible story, as mentioned, is detailed in the ESPN short “A Mountain to Climb,” which you can (and should) watch below.

    She’s from Nepal and her last name is Sherpa and the film is called A Mountain to Climb?!!? That is stereotypical as you can get.

      Some research on Nepal and it’s culture will help you figure it out.

    that’s what golf should be about…helping those in need. G.O.A.T. doing G.O.A.T. things with others!
