Woods watches U.S. Open tennis match with daughter


With his golf season already over, Tiger Woods spent some of his newfound free time watching a U.S. Open tennis match Friday night alongside his daughter, Sam. 

Woods watched Rafael Nadal's third-round match against Fablo Fognini from Nadal's box. The two athletes, who have each won 14 major titles, have been friends for years and Nadal once said that acting like Woods on the course is "the only way I can play a round of golf."

While two years ago Woods had his daughter follow him at the Deutsche Bank Championship, he failed to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs this season which allowed for some father-daughter bonding time in New York.

Unfortunately for Nadal, Woods did not prove to be a good luck charm as the Spaniard was upset by Fognini after blowing a 2-set lead at a Grand Slam for the first time in his career.

Woods is next expected to tee it up at the season-opening Frys.com Open, Oct. 15-18 in Napa, Calif.
