Tiger Woods Sends An Emotional Letter To A Suicidal Young Fan

May 13, 2015

A 12 year-old boy being bullied for stuttering received strong words of encouragement from someone else who once struggled with a stutter - Tiger Woods.

After hearing a story in Golf Digest about his struggles including a suicide attempt, Tiger sent a heartfelt letter to golf-loving Dillon, who mentioned that he is a huge Tiger Woods fan.

This is the response from Dillon, written in an email to Golf Digest:

"On Saturday, I got a letter from Tiger! He told me that he used to stutter too. We are going to frame the letter. We have never seen a golf tournament in person, only on TV. I told my mom that when my leg gets better (he fractured his leg in the suicide attempt) I think that would be a fun thing to do.

I hope that maybe one other person out there that is also having struggles, will hear my story and realize suicide is not the answer and maybe it can help them. I just acted on impulse and now wish that I hadn't. I was just tired of feeling small and like I didn't matter. I know that I do matter with the help of my family and friends like you to support me. So thank you and please thank Ron. You are a really great person."

Love him or hate him, this is a really classy move from Tiger.
