Golf pro Tiger Woods is making a rare late-night television appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday.
Woods has kept a low profile on the talk show circuit since admitting to extra-marital affairs and taking a five-month hiatus from the PGA Tour last year.
Fallon said he lured Woods to the show by pitching him the idea of playing miniature golf with him. “We’re going to do it,” he said at at Friday night’s PaleyFest panel. Moderator Chris Hardwick joked, “That’s probably the nicest comedy sketch anyone has pitched him recently!”
Woods previously played golf with Fallon, albeit on Wii’s Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, in June 2009. Fallon won that round decidedly.
In January, Electronic Arts dropped the golfer from the cover of the upcoming Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii editions of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters, replacing him with a shot of the iconic yellow flag at Augusta National Golf Club, which is a major focus for the new game, out March 29. Woods will appear on the PlayStation 3 Collector’s Edition of the game.
