Tiger just met another Tiger.

The biggest name in golf took a break from putting practice at the Ryder Cup to get introduced to the teams who contested the junior version of the event on Monday and Tuesday.

As Woods shook the hands of the youngsters standing in a line, he reached a British player named Robin Williams, whose middle name is Tiger.

“You’re a big inspiration to me, thank you,” the youngster said to Woods, who approached him and gave him a pat.

Woods asked Williams, who is 17 years old and from Peterborough in England, if he would be conflicted when the Ryder Cup begins Friday.

“You can root for Europe,” Woods said, “but hope I go 5-0.”
