Who is Tiger Woods?
Eldrick Tont ‘Tiger’ Woods was born in Cypress, California USA, on 30 December 1975 – his zodiac sign is Capricorn and he holds American nationality. He’s one of the best golf players of all time ranking first (tied) in the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) Tour victories, and second in major championships. Tiger holds many golf records, and has been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
He was raised in Orange County, California as an only child, by his father Earl who is a Vietnam War veteran and his mother Kutilda Woods who was a housewife; Tiger has a half-sister and two half-brothers from Earl’s first marriage.
He began playing golf when he was two – his father taught him the basics as he was an amateur player himself. Tiger was six when he won the Under Age 10 competition at the Navy Golf Course, and aged eight, he entered the 9-10 boys’ category at Junior World Golf Championships, winning it. He went on to win the championship six more times, including four times in a row. Tiger studied at Western High School, and was 15 when he became the youngest US Junior Amateur Champion (a record today held by Jim Liu, who broke it in 2010). Upon matriculating in 1994, he began attending Stanford University on a golf scholarship, but quit after two years to focus on his career as a golfer.
Tiger has been playing golf to this day, and has won 82 PGA Tour events, 15 major championships, and numerous other tournaments. It was reported in 2009 by the American business magazine “Forbes”, that Tiger was the first professional athlete to earn over $1 billion, and he was at that point the second richest black person in the US, with only Oprah Winfrey being richer. In 2017, he was ranked the highest paid golf player in the world.
He’s also a bit of a writer, having written columns for the magazine “Golf Digest” from 1997 to early 2011. He published his golf instruction book in 2001 entitled “How I Play Golf”, which became a bestseller, selling over a million copies.
Tiger also published his memoirs “The 1997 Masters: My Story” in March 2017, while he has announced that he’s currently writing a new book entitled “Back”.
Tiger was arrested on 29 May 2017 for driving under the influence – the police test showed that he had drugs and alcohol in his blood. After pleading guilty in court, he was put on a one-year probation, ordered to pay $250, and do 50 hours of community service.
