"Let's go back 30 years ago. I was 9 years old, pretty hip with my Coke-bottle glasses. ... We're playing the Junior World down in San Diego … At the time I was the only one of ethnic descent playing, and it was a tough and lonely road. At 9 years old, Notah being the elder statesman at 12, he came over to me and introduced himself. He says 'I'm Notah Begay, I'm just like you, and you'll never be alone. You'll always have a friend.' And from that day on, we've been brothers for life."
-- Tiger Woods, upon inducting friend and former college roommate Notah Begay III into the Stanford Hall of Fame.
