Who is his father Tiger Woods?

Eldrick Tont ‘Tiger’ Woods was born in Cypress, California USA, on 30 December 1975, making his zodiac sign Capricorn. He’s one of three athletes to have a net worth of over $1 billion, and today holds many golf records; Tiger holds second place in men’s major championship wins, and shares first place in PGA Tour wins with Sam Snead.

He was raised an only child in Orange County, California by his Thai mother Kultida ‘Tida’ Woods who was a housewife, and his father Earl Dennison Woods who was a US Army officer, and who fought in the Vietnam War; Tiger has three half-siblings from Earl’s former marriage. His father nicknamed him Tiger after South Vietnamese Colonel Vuong Dang Phong, whom his soldiers had nicknamed ‘Tiger’.

Earl was an amateur golfer, and began teaching Tiger to play before he turned two, playing against the late British-American comedian and actor Leslie Townes ‘Bob’ Hope in the talk-show “The Mike Douglas Show”. He was five when he made a guest appearance in both the reality TV show “That’s Incredible!”, and the sports show “Golf Digest”. He entered the Drive, Pitch and Putt competition before turning seven, winning the Under Age 10 category, then entered the Junior World Golf Championships aged eight, winning the 9-10 age category – he won the Junior World Championships four consecutive times starting from 1988.

He studied at Western High School, and was 15 when he won the US Junior Amateur Championships, becoming the youngest person to achieve that feat; he won it again in 1992 and 1993, and to this day remains the only person to win it thrice. Tiger became the youngest person to win the US Amateur in 1994, and in the same year, the American team of which Tiger was a member, won the Eisenhower Trophy – World’s Amateur Golf Team Championship.

He matriculated in 1994, and then enrolled at Stanford University on a golf scholarship; in September of the same year, Tiger won the 40th Annual William H. Tucker Invitational. He competed in the Masters Tournament for the first time in 1995, and became the youngest winner on 13 April 1997, having quit college a year earlier, wanting to focus on golf.

He was 20 when he became a professional golfer, and in the same year signed contracts with Titleist and Nike; he numbered eight wins in 1999 including the PGA Championship, becoming the first person to achieve that since Johnny Miller in 1974.

By the end of 2000, Tiger had won nine of 20 PGA Tours, and it was the second time that the magazine “Sports Illustrated” named him Sportsman of the Year, the first time that an athlete was named twice. He remained #1 in the Official World Golf Rankings for 264 weeks until September 2004, when Vijay Singh overtook him; Tiger reclaimed #1 in July 2005.

He excelled in the following four years, but after it was revealed that he’d been unfaithful to his wife, who then filed for divorce, Tiger announced in December 2009 that he would be taking an indefinite break from golf; he apologized for this rash action and returned to golf after only two months. He failed to achieve his former quality of play in the following three years, and only became dominant in golf once more in 2013, winning The Players Championship, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, WGC-Cadillac Championship, and the Farmers Insurance Open.

He was inducted into the California Hall of Fame on 5 December 2007, and the Associated Press named him Athlete of the Decade in December 2009; former US President Donald Trump presented Tiger with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in May 2019.

He’s also an author, having written the 2001 golf instruction book “How I Play Golf”, and the 2017 memoir “The 1997 Masters: My Story”; he revealed in October 2019 that he was working on his new memoir – “Back”.

Tiger revealed on 18 March 2013 that he was in a relationship with American former alpine ski racer Lindsey Caroline Vonn, but they split two years later. In 2016 and 2017, he dated American stylist Kristin Smith, and since the second half of 2017, Tiger’s been in relationship with Erica Herman, an American restaurant manager.
