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! Tiger Woods 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. Tiger Woods 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. He was born as Eldrick Tont Woods to Earl
Woods and Kultida; he was nicknamed Tiger in honour of his father’s friend. He has three half-siblings through
his father’s previous marriage. He is of mixed ancestry. His father was a Vietnam War Veteran. Tiger Woods was introduced to golf when he
was just two by his father who had himself been an amateur golfer. He excelled in golf and went on to win the
Junior World Golf Championships six times. He attended Western High School from where
he graduated in 1994. He became a U.S. Junior Amateur champion when
he was 15 years old. He would win the
championship three times. Tiger Woods enrolled at Stanford University
under a golfing scholarship in 1994. He left after two years to pursue golfing
as a career. After becoming a professional golfer in 1996
he was immediately offered deals with Nike, Inc., and Titleist as he had become famous
because of his collegiate career. He won the Masters, his first major tournament
in 1997. He was ranked No.1 in the Official World Golf
Rankings. He won the PGA Championship in 1999. He had a great start to the new millennium
with six consecutive wins in 2000. One of his victories for the year was the
U.S. open where he broke or equaled nine records. He won several golfing titles that season
and by winning the 2001 Masters Tournament, he became the first player to win all four
major professional titles at the same time. The next two seasons were not that great for
him. However his form returned in 2005 and he won
six official PGA Tour money events. He closed the 2006 season
with 54 wins. His great form continued through the next
couple of years. However a knee surgery in the later part of
2008 forced him to take a short break. He was enthusiastically welcomed back to golf
in 2009. He did not disappoint his fans and performed
well winning the 2009 Presidents Cup with an amazing performance. There had been some scandals and controversies
involving his personal life in late 2009 which hampered his performance in 2010. His sponsors cancelled their contracts
and his rankings also fell. For the first time in his career he could
not win a single event. In 2011 his dismal performances continued. He fell to No.7 rank by March. Over the year his personal, professional,
and health woes continued and he fell to No. 58. The 2012 season was better for him — he
won two tournaments at the beginning. He went on to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational
and the Memorial Tournament. By 2013 he was back to his original form. He won the Farmers Insurance Open in January
and the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March. A win in the Arnold Palmer
Invitational re-established his position as the World No.1
He was inducted into at The California Museum for History, Women and the Arts in Sacramento
in 2007. The Associated Press named him the “Athlete
of the Decade” in December 2009. He married former Swedish model Elin Nordegren
in 2004. They had two children. In 2009 reports of his extramarital affairs
with multiple women began surfacing. Even though he denied it in the beginning
he eventually accepted his transgressions. This led to the couple’s divorce in 2010.
