Vladimir Casseus ’12 spent yesterday at the Deustche Bank Championship with one of golf’s top players, Tiger Woods. Casseus was a 2008 recipient of the Earl Woods Scholarship, sponsored by the Tiger Woods Foundation and named after Woods’ father, which he used to attend the College of the Holy Cross as a psychology major.

“It was really amazing to see him in person,” Casseus said, “because I only see him on ESPN. He sort of already knew who I was, but it was nice to meet him in person.”

Casseus, along with one of the 2013 scholarship recipients, received a Red Sox jersey from Woods with his name on the back. The gift was especially fitting because Casseus will be singing the National Anthem at Fenway Park tonight. While Casseus performed as a student with the Sound of Saint James, an all-male a capella group at the College, this will be only the second time he has sung the anthem in public.

“I’ve been practicing,” Casseus said. “It’s going to be crazy. The fact that I will be on Fenway Park is crazy. Then singing in front of everybody will be even more.”
