BELEK, Turkey (AP) - His heritage bridges continents. Now his game has, too.
Tiger Woods hit balls from Europe into Asia on Tuesday when half of the six-lane Bosphorus Bridge was closed for the world's top-ranked golfer.
In a publicity stunt for this week's Turkish Open, Woods stood on a makeshift tee and launched drives along the world's fourth longest suspension bridge, which spans 5,118 feet and is 210 feet above the Bosphorus River.
Woods said: ''To be the first golfer to do this was very cool.''
About 180,000 vehicles cross the bridge daily, many so drivers can say they crossed from one continent to the other.
Woods is the only non-European in the Turkish Open that starts Thursday. The tournament also features Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson and Padraig Harrington.
