Golf has its fanbase. This sport is unique and as calm as you like. No dramas, no glamour whatsoever. But the individuals who take up golf as a sport are crazy about it. To pot balls into holes with a stick in hand is an art that everyone doesn’t have expertise in. However, the world knows one expert, the greatest ever to step on a golf field. This G.O.A.T. golf player is Eldrick Woods, popularly known as Tiger Woods.
Tiger Woods belonged to a racial family. His father was an African-American, and his mother was a Thai. He expressed his love for golf at a very young age. At the age of 16 in 1991, Tiger Woods became the youngest to win US Junior Amateur Championship. He repeated this feat for the next two years as well. In 1994, he won his first U.S. Amateur Championship and got two more in the next two years.
SERIES OF VICTORIES
In 1996, Woods started his pro career by participating in 8 P.G.A. events, winning two. During his tenure, he made several records and had impeccable talent. Woods made 270 over 72 holes in the 1997 Masters tournament and broke the decade-old record of winning eight P.G.A. events in 1999. 2000 proved to be a golden year for Tiger Woods when he became the youngest to complete the grand slam of four major golf tournaments, including the U.S. and British Open. He continued the winning track by winning Masters titles in 2001 and 2002. After that, he went trophyless for about ten competitions, breaking that bloc in 2005. The series of wins followed at a continuous pace until 2009.
In November 2009, Woods suffered an accident. After the accident, the news and media investigation revealed some grey areas of his life. Reports indicated that Woods had extramarital affairs and was involved in several relationships. It led to his divorce from Nordegren, whom he married in 2004. The 2010 season was the worst for Wood’s professional career. He was not able to win any of the P.G.A. events in 2011.
RESURGENCE AND AWARDS
His resurgence began in 2012 with a P.G.A. win. In 2013, he made a record for most P.G.A. wins and regained the first spot in the world’s golf rankings. But the peak of Tiger Woods had ended by then, and he became injury prone. He started having back injuries and had to go through surgeries which kept him out of the game for long. In 2019, Woods completed an astounding win in the Masters’ tournament at 43. He stunned the world with his performance and indicated that he wasn’t finished yet. The same year, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by U.S. President Donald Trump. A T.V. documentary “Tiger” came into the scene to acknowledge his life and achievements in 2021.
