The Legacy Of Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods is a golfer who has won an amazing number of tournaments and has been the face of professional golf for the last decade or so. He’s widely considered to be one of the best golfers of all time and one of the most famous sportsmen in the world.

The professional golfer was born on December 30, 1975, in Cypress, California. His father is Earl Woods, a former pro golfer and a member of the PGA Tour Hall of Fame, and his mother is Kultida Woods. He grew up with his younger brother, Eldrick, and younger sister, Elin. Tiger Woods also has a half-sister, Kristy Woods, and a half-brother, Austin Woods. He is of Thai descent on his paternal side and German descent on his maternal side. He was an avid golfer as a child, and his first golf clubs were wooden golf clubs that were made of wood.

Tiger Woods has done something that few other athletes have managed to do in their entire career. He managed to become the best golfer in the world, and he managed to keep that status for 18 years. Tiger Woods has dominated the game for so long that it is hard to imagine he has any challengers left in the game.

Tiger Woods studied at Stanford University, and the university website states the following: “Tiger Woods was a three-time All-American athlete at Stanford. He was the driving force behind the Cardinal’s climb to the top of Division I-A. As a junior, Woods led Stanford to a share of the 1987 NCAA crown. As a senior, Woods was one of four finalists for the Heisman Trophy, and he was named the PAC-10 Player of the Year. Woods was inducted into the Stanford Athletics Hall of Fame in 1993 and into the Stanford Ring of Honor in 1999. He is the only golfer to be voted All-American and PAC-10 Player of the Year in the same year.”

Tiger Woods has won several amateur U.S. golf titles, but he is far from the best player in the world. Woods now has five major championships, but only one of the 18 golfers who have won more majors than him is alive today.

The 1997 Masters was the first major championship for Tiger Woods, who entered the tournament as a 20-year-old rookie without much of a reputation. He entered the final round with a single-digit lead over reigning champion Raymond Floyd but shot a bogey-free 65 to take the title. It was the first of his 14 major wins, and he has gone on to become arguably the greatest golfer of all time.

In May of 2006, Earl Woods died. Even though Tiger Woods was already 31 years old at the time, he still felt the pain of his father’s passing. The loss took a toll on his golf game, and Tiger says he still has bad memories of the day. “I remember waking up in the morning and hearing the news,” Woods said in an interview published in The New York Times. “It was one of those things that you don’t want to believe, and when you hear the news, you sit there, and you say, ‘OK, this can’t be, this can’t be true.’”

Many of you probably already know that Tiger Woods’s wife, Elin Nordegren, gave birth to their daughter on June 18, 2007, at the age of 30. This is a child named Sam Alexis (Sam for short), and she is the first child of the couple. The baby was born at an Atlanta hospital and weighed six pounds and two ounces. And then, they announced to the public that they were having a new baby on September 2, 2008.

Tiger Woods won the World Golf Championship and the PGA Championship in August 2007. This was a huge accomplishment for Tiger. Never before had a player won the majors, the PGA Tour, and the World Golf Championship in the same year. He became the first athlete to accomplish this feat.

In April of 2010, some of the best golfers in the world—including Tiger Woods – made a return to the golf course after a month-long hiatus. In an interview on his return to the golf course, Woods said,

“I’m feeling really good. I’ve been working extremely hard. I’ve been making a ton of swings on the range. I’ve been working on my short game, and I’m feeling really good. I’m ready to go out and play a lot of golf.”
