Three years ago, Zac Blair played the third round of the Memorial Tournament alongside Tiger Woods.

Woods shot 85, his worst-ever score as a professional. Regardless, it was 18 holes Blair will forever cherish:

A new generation - that grew up admiring and idolizing Woods - is getting to know him personally for the first time. Practicing near him, greeting him in the locker room, playing practice and tournament rounds with him. Sam Burns got his time with Tiger at the Honda Classic. Mackenzie Hughes did so at The Players.

Sunday at the Memorial Tournament, it was Whee Kim's turn. Kim shot 1-over 73 to Woods' even-par 72, and afterwards Kim expressed his immense joy in playing with the "still" living legend.
