Tiger Woods New York, Jun 26 (ANI): American professional golfer Tiger Woods was left embarrassed after he was beaten by comedian and NBC’s show host Jimmy Fallon at his own game of golf on Nintendo Wii.

Woods, 33, quit the game, played on June 25 at Times Square, before finishing the third and final hole.

“I just got absolutely schooled in my own game,” the New York Daily News quoted Woods as saying.

“I certainly want a rematch,” he stated.

Fallon, 34, was elated after he defeated the world’s number one-ranked golfer after shooting, astonishingly, for par.

Woods shot a double-bogey and a bogey on the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 10 game before giving up.

“Tiger is the greatest athlete in the world right now,” Fallon said.

“But I think I’m better at playing with my Wii,” he added.

Many tourists on the streets and in tour buses witnessed the match, and they gawked and took pictures as Woods and Fallon appeared on a makeshift stage at Broadway and 43rd Street.

Brooklyn-born Fallon had been confident from the start that he would win the game.

“I think I have a bit of an advantage; this is my home court,” he said.

“I’m ready to do this,” he exclaimed.

Woods, wearing a red Nike polo and black pants, never recovered after flubbing his first few shots.

“I’m getting thumped,” he stated. (ANI)
