Tiger arrives for a week of training at Fort Bragg

SHARE Tiger arrives for a week of training at Fort Bragg

Fresh from the green jackets of Augusta National, Tiger Woods arrived at the home of the Green Berets on Monday for a week of military training.

Woods, who finished 22nd at the Masters on Sunday, came on a private jet for his visit with the Army Special Forces at Fort Bragg, N.C. But Woods probably won't get the same type of training as his father, an ex-Green Beret who trained here during the Vietnam War.

"I don't know how rough they're going to train him," retired Army Sgt. Maj. Dwight Nixon said Monday as he made the turn at the base's Stryker Golf Course. "They probably won't train him quite as hard, but they'll give him something."

While Nixon got a dose of Woods' everyday life, Woods was getting ready for a taste of the military.

Woods was issued a camouflaged uniform with his name on it, Bragg spokesman Lt. Col. Bill Buckner said. He also received an orientation to the post, the Army and the Special Forces.

Woods did not make himself available for questions Monday, and his representatives have said he wants his Bragg experience to be private.
