Tiger Woods goes to New Zealand extremes

April 24, 2006 at 4:03 PM   |   Comments

AUCKLAND, New Zealand, April 24 (UPI) -- Tiger Woods took a break from the golf course to win stock car race in New Zealand and drop twice from the country's highest bungy jump.

Woods went "down under" to serve as best man for his caddie and old friend Steve Williams, a champion driver in New Zealand when he is not on the tournament circuit with Woods, the BBC reported.

Woods participated as a driver in three races Monday in the Huntly Celebrity Classic. He was a blocker in the first race, won the second and emerged unscathed from the third. The event was a fundraiser for a charity Woods founded to help children.

Williams and Woods each jumped twice from the Nevis Highwire, a cable car platform suspended 400 feet above the Nevis River.

Woods, whose father has cancer, is expected to return to golf with the U.S. Open in June.
