Nate Bargatze tells funny story about meeting Tiger Woods, honors the golf great in new comedy special!


The Nashville standup's latest work, "Hello, World," comes out on Prime Video on Jan. 31. And as golf fans are well aware, that's how Tiger introduced himself at the famous 1996 press conference in which he turned pro. Great quote. Great title. We're in come the end of this month.

And earlier this week, Bargatze sat down with another celebrity golfer, Jimmy Fallon, to discuss his upcoming special, the golf-themed title, and his meeting with Woods, which produced the funny photo above. Have a watch:

"This was a big deal for me," Bargatze says of meeting Tiger. "This was it."


"Juding by this photo," Fallon responds, "I'm not sure you did meet Tiger Woods." Classic.

Bargatze adds he was able to tell Tiger about the title of the special in their brief interaction. "It was a lot for him to take in," Bargatze jokes.

As you may have guessed, Bargatze is an avid golfer and a huge Tiger fan. He plays to a 4-handicap and has even started playing in some local tournaments. He admitted he also has an ulterior motive for his golf references.
