Tiger Woods Writes Letter To Kid Who Was Being Bullied For Having A Stutter

Tiger Woods Writes Letter To Kid Who Was Being Bullied For Having A Stutter

Tiger Woods may have been to hell and back over the past few years as he tries to secure his return to the top of the golfing world.

A string of unfortunate injuries, mixed with some downright shockingly bad performances on the course (not to mention his personal problems away from golf) has seen him become a shadow of player we once knew.

But this week he showed despite all that he’s still got take to look out for his fans.

The 14-time major winner was alerted to the fact that a young boy by the name of Dillon was being bullied at school for his stutter – a condition that Woods himself suffered from as a child.

According to Golf Digest, the taunting was so bad that Dillon actually attempted to commit suicide.

Woods was informed about the situation by professional female golfer Sophie Gustafson, who also has a stutter and has been mentoring the young boy.

And the former World No1 responded with a heartfelt letter of support to the young man.

Gustafson praised the move by Woods on Twitter, and thanked him for the gesture.
