1992 Nissan LA Open at Riviera CC Caddie Series Badge #00048 - Tiger Woods' Pro Debut

Taking a couple days off of school and heading to the golf course to play in a PGA Tour tournament as a 16 year-old Sophomore in high school sounds like a dream many have had. For 16-year-old Tiger Woods in 1992 it was reality. Playing his first tournament on a sponsor's exemption at Riviera only a half of an hour away, Woods became the youngest male competitor in an official tour event that week. Four years prior to his 'Hello World' professional debut moment at the Greater Milwaukee Open, Tiger Woods could hit it far and was an obvious star in the making - winning his second straight US Junior Amateur in 1992. While the 1992 Nissan Los Angeles Open at Riviera was not a win, this tournament was truly Tiger Woods' coming out party on the professional level. More than likely some of his competitors that week knew that they had to get their wins then before Woods was on the tour to stay.

The green and white credentials badge is that from the limited 'Caddie' access level and is numbered #00048 in gold tone. This badge has been on the short list of 'Debut' tickets and is from the collection of a man on the bag of a competitor that week, seeing the historic tournament from inside the ropes with this badge the gateway.
