Tiger Woods career
Tiger Woods Birth
Tiger Woods was born on December 30 in 1975, and right now, he is passing his 45th living year (by 2020).
The birth name of Tiger Woods is EdricTont Woods, and he was called Tiger Woods by his father as the respect of one of his fellow friends who was also called Tiger.
If not as a genius but surely with some natural golfing skill, Tiger Woods bestowed the whole world.
Tiger Woods Early learning
The early coach of Tiger Woods was his father. His father was a military man and as a result, Tiger Woods has received enough opportunity to play in professional military courses from the very early period of his life. At 2 years of age, Tiger played on a regulation course of 9 holes with a 36 par and Tiger finishes the course with 48 par stroke.
At 3 years of age, Tiger played his first tournament and the tournament was for kids under 10 years of age.
And freakingly, Tiger Woods won that tournament.
At the age of 11, Tiger Woods defeated his father for the first time and since then, his father never managed to win against him.
His father has made a real impact on the building of his career.
He was his coach and role model.
The death of his father was like a total shock to him.
He said, “I’ll never forget the lesson that (dad) told me. That year at the Masters, I tried to win it for him. I knew it was the last tournament he was ever going to watch me play. I need to win one for dad, so he can actually see this before he passes and I tried and I put too much pressure on myself and I went back to California after that to be with Pops and he (was like), ‘What the hell is wrong with you?’ And I said, ‘Well dad, I tried to win it for you.’ He said, ‘Haven’t I taught you anything in the game of golf? You do it for the inner joy that it brings, you don’t do it for anyone else.’ And (I was like), ‘Yeah, I took myself out of what you taught me.’ Looking back on this year, at the core of it all is that I wanted to do it again. I wanted to do it for myself that I could climb the mountain one more time.”
Many people criticize that Tiger has lost his track after his father’s death.
Maybe it’s true for his personal life but Tiger surely has made such progress in the game of golf.
