NASSAU, Bahamas ­– Tiger Woods, the YouTube sensation.

That’s the way his children view him because they don’t really have memories of watching their father compete on a regular basis.

“Most of the stuff they’ve watched has been on highlight packages,” Woods said Tuesday. “They’ve never seen what I can do on a golf course.”

Then the point was brought up that, while Woods may be a YouTube legend to his own children, there may be a handful of players in the Hero World Challenge field this week that have seen Woods on YouTube more than they have in person.

“When I turned pro, I think Jordan (Spieth) was still in diapers, right,” he quipped.

“In an ideal world, I would like to have (the younger generation) feel what some of my past guys had to go against all those years. I’d like to have them feel that same way.”
