The law catches up with Tiger

IT WAS money well spent as far as Maryborough’s Kate Law is concerned.

The $A3.25 million paid to get Tiger Woods to play in the Australian Masters was worth every cent according to the rising young golf star.

Law was still struggling to come back down to earth yesterday after seeing the world No.1 up close and personal and hearing him talk to her and all the other young golfers playing in the Australian School Sport National Golf Championships in Melbourne.

The 12-year-old Law, a member of the Maryborough Golf Club who is representing Queensland in the titles, got the chance to see and hear Woods at the Pro-am at Kingston Heath.

She said it was an experience that she’ll never forget.

“I just couldn’t believe that I was watching Tiger and that I was only about 10 metres away from him – I had to pinch myself and make sure I wasn’t dreaming,” she said.

“I would say that it was the most exciting thing in my life.

“It was so cool just to be there.”

But did the excitement of seeing Woods on-course rub off on Law in the second and final round of the championships at Rosebud Golf and Country Club yesterday?

A report on how she and Hervey Bay’s Connor Reeves played the last 18 holes will be in tomorrow’s Fraser Coast Chronicle.
