In a delicious twist of fate, Woods's old Heartwell buddy, Manos, has been a pro at Big Canyon since 1995. They don't get to play together too often, but there have been a few memorable tilts. "The summer before his third U.S. Amateur we went out, and I took him on the front nine straight up, 32-34," says Manos. "On the 13th hole we saw lightning in the foothills. I was like, 'Uh, Tiger, it's time to go in,' but he wouldn't budge. He wanted to keep playing. By 16 I'm still ahead in the match. The rain is really coming down, and there's some thunder too. All I want to do is get inside, but Tiger wants to finish the round, so we did. Well, I held on to win the match and $20. He claimed not to have any money, as usual, so I never saw a dime. Every time I've seen him since, I bring up that 20 bucks, but he won't pay. All he ever says is, 'I tell you what, I'll play you for it.' I'd rather have the 20 bucks, you know? I may have beaten him once, but he's pretty much been kicking my butt since he was 4� years old."
