Who is Tiger Woods?

undefined - Tiger WoodsTiger Woods

The name Tiger Woods is synonymous with golf, and why would it not be? He is after all, the current No.1 golfer in the whole world and one of the most successful golfers of all time. He also has the distinction of having earned the most in PGA Tour history. A child prodigy, he was introduced to golf when he was just a toddler of two! He won the Junior World Golf Championships six times and became the youngest ever U.S. Junior Amateur champion when he was 15 years old. He turned professional when he was 21 and won his first major tournament the very next year in a record-breaking performance. Soon he dominated world golf and reached the No.1 position in the world rankings. Over his career he has broken several golf records and has won 14 professional major golf championships. He is one of the few players—and the youngest—to have achieved the career Grand Slam of golf. He reached the pinnacles of glory during the 2000s when stories of his multiple affairs started doing the rounds. His transgressions led to a fall in his rankings and the break up of his family. However, the gutsy player soon bounced back to regain his position as the World No.1.
