Tiger takes time for scorekeeper

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (WCIV) -- Tiger Woods may have tied for 11th place in the PGA Championship, but he won the number one spot in one Lowcountry family's heart.

There was roar coming from the PGA crowd as Rory McIlroy won the championship in a landslide. Tiger Woods failed to put on one of his patented moves but that didn't stop him from impressing one Lowcountry man.

Johns Island's Robert Bennett walked the final 18 holes with Tiger and his group. He was the group's official scorekeeper and a volunteer and at the end of the round, Tiger stopped to autograph Robert's hat for his young son who has autism. The move left Robert in tears.

"He was very nice when we took off on the first tee," said Bennett. "He came up and introduced himself to me and gave me great eye contact and just a minute ago he autographed my hat and so I'm going to give it to my son who is autistic and so I'm happy for that. It's incredible. My son will have that for the rest of his life."

While Tiger failed to finish in the top 10, he is certainly number one in the Bennett household.
