QPR defender Ryan Nelsen admits he mixed with Tiger Woods while doing his US college studies.

Nelsen played US football while studying for a law degree in ­political science - but he didn't finish the course ­because he met enough lawyers to make him realise it was not the life for him - at Stanford University - where a fellow ­student was Tiger Woods.

Nelsen said: "We met a few times on the driving range but he was ­practising mostly with Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook.

"I thought they didn't want to know a guy like me but he was a nice person."
