    Golfer Park Sung-hyun on Thursday met her childhood idol Tiger Woods in Jupiter, Florida and posted a selfie with him on Instagram.

    Filming a commercial for golf gear maker TaylorMade, Park could hardly contain her excitement, writing, "I'll never forget the day I met Tiger."

    The commercial features the company's new driver released this year and both golfers exclusively use the brand.

    Park didn't know she was being filmed with a secret camera when Woods appeared.

    On the same day, Park signed a two-year endorsement contract with the Philippines' Solaire Resort and Casino. Terms of the deal were not disclosed but its value is said to be the highest ever for a female golfer at approximately W2 billion (US$1=W1,126).

    In 2017, she signed a two-year deal with Korea's Hana Financial Group worth an estimated W1.5 billion to W2 billion.
