“Love to see it… Lesson: always be in learning mode,” wrote Smith, tagging Wade, Finau and the PGA Tour Twitter account.

“I bought the golf club, like many in the black community, because of Tiger Woods,” Wade said. Inside the NBA at the time. “I had this opportunity yesterday to go out and he taught me a few things – I hope this translates – but to be out there with the GOAT, in my eyes, in this sport, and to talk to him of [his two children] and his father, it was a great day. “
