Woods A ‘Winner’ Even In Defeat Tiger Talks Shop With Palmer As Pair Lose In Charity Event

By Associated Press

No one cared about the results when Tigermania and Arnie’s Army joined forces for 18 holes of benefit golf Monday.

Tiger Woods, golf’s current sensation at 21 years old, and Arnold Palmer, still one of the sport’s greatest names at 67, lost a charity skins event to Davis Love III and Tom Lehman.

Woods still felt like the winner.

“More than a torch being passed. It’s knowledge that’s being passed on. I’ve had a chance to sit down with Arnie, and he’s given me a lot of advice,” said Woods, already a sixtime PGA Tour winner.

Love won an impromptu sandwedge contest after Woods missed an eagle putt on the final hole, giving Love and Lehman a $15,000-$3,000 victory.

The money went toward the $750,000 Palmer said was raised for the Latrobe Area Hospital foundation.
