Tiger Woods emerged unscathed after a weekend of stock-car racing and bungee jumping while in New Zealand as best man at caddie Steve Williams' wedding.

The world number one drove in three races, acting as a "blocker" in one and winning the second from the back of the grid despite hitting a wall.

Woods also twice plunged 134m from a cable car in New Zealand's highest bungee jump in Queenstown.

Kiwi Williams, a motorsport champion in New Zealand, was married on Friday.

The 30-year-old Woods, winner of 10 golf majors, was driving a stock car for the first time but showed no fear in some of his blocking duels in the first race.

With team-mates as blockers in the second race, Woods charged from the back to win but he had to settle for second overall after former All Black captain Tana Umaga's team won the deciding third race.
