If you’ve ever wondered how much you would have to pay Tiger Woods to get him to give you a golf lesson, we now have an answer.
A private golf lesson with Tiger Woods went for $210,000.
The lesson was auctioned off during a pro-am draw party for a charity golf event for Hurricane Harvey victims. The event, played at the Woods-designed Bluejack National outside of Houston, was organized by PGA Tour winner Chris Stroud and fellow pro Bobby Gates.

It’s unclear how long the lesson is — 15 minutes? an hour? — but it seems if you’re willing to fork over nearly a quarter-million to get Tiger Woods’ eyes on your action, you’re probably not too worried about the actual hourly rate.
Woods obviously isn’t an instructor by trade, but he has some of the best eyes on the golf swing in the world. Besides, he’s personally been through a handful of complete overhauls, so he pretty much understands everything that can go right and wrong with the swing.
In tally, the event, which featured more than two dozen pro golfers, raised more than $1 million for victims of the largest hurricane-based rain event in United States history.
