Eldrick Tont Woods
Woods was born in Cypress...
California and at the age of two was introduced to Golf by his father, Earl. Fast forward to the summer of 1996 when at the age of 20, Tiger turned pro. By the following year he had already won three PGA Tour events as well as the 1997 Masters. This is an incredible feat for a seasoned athlete but Tiger was just 21 at the time. From an early age Woods has been a force to be reckoned with.
Woods is not only one of the most successful golfers of all time, he is also one of the highest paid athletes in the world. His list of accomplishments and accolades is extensive to say the least. He has won the Masters Tournament four times, the U.S. Open three times and the PGA Championship four times. In addition to that he has been named the PGA Player of the Year a staggering eleven times. He is also a nine time recipient of both the Vardon Trophy and the Byron Nelson Award.
