IT IS hard to imagine teeing off in front of one of the greatest golfers of all time, but apparently pressure works for 11-year-old Taylor Crozier.

Taylor and golfing legend Tiger Woods were teeing off at a the Bluejack National golf complex, featuring a course designed by Woods.

Taylor was to deliver the first ever shot on the course.

When introduced to the crowd, the announcer said the boy had "perfect attendance in school this year -- until today" to laughs and cheers from the audience.

After taking his shot, the crowd's soft support turned to intense anticipation then exploded into cheers as the ball spun into the hole.

The first ace ever recorded at the course came from the first shot ever hit, and within view of Woods.

Woods gave the boy a bear hug and seemed excited to have witnessed history being made on the new course.

A scorecard signed by Woods for Taylor is not only a cool souvenir on its own, it also records that Taylor beat Woods by three shots.
