Did you know?

Tiger Woods has broken records since he first started swinging a golf club at the age of two. He is the youngest winner of the US Junior Amateur, the youngest winner of the US Amateur and the youngest winner of the US Masters. These are but a few of the many, many records Tiger has already set and will continue to set.

Earl Woods, Tiger's father, first applied the name Tiger to his son in honour of a South Vietnamese comrade, Lt. Nguyen (Tiger) Phong. Tiger Woods now lives in Jupiter Island, Florida.

From 2014-17 Woods suffered a prolonged winless drought, mainly as a result of a back injury and associated surgery. During this period he fell to as low as 1,199th in the official world golf rankings. In 2018 Woods announced his return to full playing fitness with a win in the Tour Championship. This was followed in 2019 with an unforgettable "comeback" win in the Masters Tournament, his first major championship title for 11 years. In the same year he also equalled Sam Snead's record for the highest number of PGA Tour wins (82).
