Golf hasn’t lost its luster for Tiger Woods.

The 14-time major champion gave lessons to South Korean junior golfers in the city of Chuncheon and spoke of how much the sport still means to him.

Woods says it has “been a big part of my life. It’s taught me a lot about life” as he has “been playing the game since I was basically 1 year old.”

He says “it’s been just something pretty exciting to be able to compete and play, now professionally, all over the world. It’s a dream come true.”

After finishing tied for fourth at the Masters on Sunday in a return to form after having remodeled his swing, Woods then visited China to promote the sport and his sponsors before arriving in South Korea.
