Tiger Woods stepped out for NBA legend Michael Jordan's wedding with model, Yvette Prieto in Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday.

The 37-year-old pro golfer was seen walking down the road to attend the bash, the People magazine reported.

However, Woods did not go out of his way to show his support on Jordan's big day as he owns a home on Jupiter Island, which is not far from where the reception was held.

Meanwhile, a source confirmed to the publication that although Wood's Olympic skier girlfriend Lindsey Vonn was invited to the wedding, she chose not to attend.

Other notable attendees included filmmaker Spike Lee and retired New York Knicks player Patrick Ewing.

The couple have been dating for about five years. It will be the second marriage for Jordan, who divorced his wife Juanita in 2006 after 17 years.

Jordan spent almost 19 years with the National Basketball Association, retiring twice from the Chicago Bulls before finally quitting the game and the Washington Wizards in 2003.

He endorsed the successful line of Nike Air Jordan athletic shoes and appeared as himself in the 1996 movie "Space Jam."
