Say what you will about Tiger Woods, but the man does have a good heart (even if he's been accused of cheating on his girlfriend of three years, Lindsey Vonn).
Back in April, Tiger showed just how thoughtful he truly is after he heard about a teenage boy named Dillon, who happens to be a big fan of his, had attempted suicide. The boy was being bullied in school for having a stutter and even had to quit the football team because he couldn't stand the verbal abuse.
LPGA golfer Sophie Gustafson, who mentors the child, contacted the 39-year-old athlete, and Tiger decided he wanted to help in any way he could.
So he penned a heartwarming letter to Dillon.

"Someone told me that you like watching me play golf. I really appreciate that, and also I want to say how proud I am of you," he wrote. "I know what it's like to be different and to sometimes not fit in. I also stuttered as a child and I would talk to my dog and he would sit there and listen until he fell asleep. I also took a class for two years to help me and I finally learned to stop.
"I was younger than most of the kids I competed against and often I was the only minority player in the field. But, I didn't let that stop me and I think it even inspired me to work harder," he continued. "I know you can do that too. You have a great family and big fans like me on your side."
Needless to say, Dillon was ecstatic when he got the letter, and Sophie made sure to follow up with Tiger on just how happy it truly made him.
Thanks so much @TigerWoods for sending my friend Dillon a letter. He got so happy! It's being framed and hanged. #class— Sophie Gustafson (@SophieGustafson) May 10, 2015
