India beckons incredible Woods
New Delhi, Nov 21 (UNI) India is beckoning Tiger Woods and the world number one golfer wants to travel to the country sometime soon, revealed Jyoti Randhawa who spent four hours with the American during Shanghai Open recently.
''Tiger is a wonderful human being. I got to spend four memorable hours with him during the Shanghai Open. I enjoyed the time and we became good friends,'' Randhawa said on the sidelines of a press conference here today.
''We talked about everything from golf to fast cars and bikes. He owns a few fast cars. And he told me that he was keen to come to India.
''I extended him an invitation and assured that it would be a quiet affair away from media glare and we laughed over it,'' Randhawa said.
The ace Indian player said the experience was enriching in terms of golf and Woods gave him certain tips on how to improve his game.
''Tiger told me how important self-belief was in golf. And later in the tournament, I assessed myself vis-a-vis Tiger and I feel it is just a matter of time before I could catch on with the top players in the world,'' said Randhawa, who led the field for two days in Shanghai before slipping to tied ninth.
On what makes Woods the best in business, Randhawa said the American had an unbelievable short game.
''Tiger has a wonderful course management. He forgets a bad shot instantly and starts afresh. People talk about how good his long drive is and discuss his immaculate swing, but I think it is his short game that puts him a cut above the rest,'' he observed.
