Tiger Woods had a special guest on hand at his clinic at Medalist Golf Club on Tuesday, as 18-year-old Nepal native Pratima Sherpa was on hand for a private lesson with the 14-time major champ.

Sherpa is an aspiring pro golfer, and is in the United States after attending the premiere of a film about her life, which included learning the sport while living in a shed on the course her parents work at.

"Pratima is simply incredible," Woods said, per ESPN's Bob Harig. "I read her story and I was amazed. The chance to meet her and talk to her was really inspiring. It was great to witness her journey and to see the happiness she exudes."

The experience was a memorable one for Sherpa, too.

"This was the best day of my life," she said. "I was so happy to meet Tiger."

Here's a look at the two on the range, with Sherpa lining up a shot using Tiger's clubs.
