  • Tiger Woods gave Dwyane Wade a golf lesson on Tuesday's episode of "A Round with Tiger: Celebrity Lessons"

  • The 82-time PGA Tour winner said he is "not done" yet even with all that he has achieved so far

Tiger Woods doesn't consider himself the "greatest of all time" despite all that he has achieved in golf.

The 82-time PGA Tour winner made this revelation during Tuesday's episode of Golf Digest's "A Round with Tiger: Celebrity Lessons" — a four-part miniseries filmed in February, the day before Woods' accident in Rancho Palos Verdes.

During the episode, his guest, retired NBA star Dwyane Wade, asked the 45-year-old golfer if he was uncomfortable with being called the "GOAT."

"I'm not the GOAT," Woods was quoted by People as saying.

"Right, see there we go. Let's get to that," Wade replied. "Certain people will say, 'The GOAT! The Greatest of All Time!' And you will say, 'Well, I'm not because of...' you have your reasons."

However, Woods resisted the compliment, insisting that he's "not there yet."

Wade continued to press, asking him, "What will make you be there? When you're done?"

"I'm not done," Woods replied.

Wade asked again if Woods would only consider himself the GOAT if he's "done," but the golfer gave the same answer, "I'm not done."

"So you can't be The GOAT while you're still playing?" the former Miami Heat player asked again.

"I'm not done," the 41-time European Tour winner said for the third time.

Earlier in the episode, Wade told cameras ahead of his golf lesson that he was "excited to get an opportunity to be around" Woods, calling him the "GOAT" there.

"You know, that's the reason I picked up a golf club, because Tiger made it cool," the NBA alum said. "So I want to learn something from the Greatest of All Time."

Aside from Wade, Woods' miniseries also featured Jada Pinkett Smith and David Spade as guests.

Meanwhile, PGA Tour veteran Jason Gore also praised Woods for making his way to the top of the sport on his own. Gore witnessed Woods' greatness and recalled how at the age of 12, the latter was already "better" than the rest of them on the field.

"[Tiger was] 12 years old, he was really, really good," Gore told Golf.com in an interview last week. "You never really realized how good he was gonna be because you just figured he was gonna burn out. There were so many other players at the time who were pushed by their parents. But you’d never realize that he was self-motivated. He was just better. He’s still just better."

He continued, "You knew that if you competed with him, and you somehow could maybe just beat him on a hole, you had something. He was just great."
