Jon Bon Jovi had a special treat in store for golf hero Tiger Woods at the sixth annual TIGERJAM fundraiser in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the weekend (19APR03) - a $20,000 (GBP13,300) cheque.

The rocker and his group Bon Jovi headlined the charity gala and then paid for the privilege of playing for his sporting hero.

A thrilled Bon Jovi says, "We were just pleased to be there. I mean, Tiger Woods is like today's BABE RUTH."

The generous cheque and all proceeds from the gala went to the Tiger Woods Foundation.
