   Tiger Woods has practically become a household name. Winner of many professional major golf
championships, awarded the celebrated title of "PGA Player of the Year" nine times, and has more
career major wins and career PGA Tour wins than any other professional golfer, there isn't any other
athlete with as much prestige as this young competitor. It's safe to say that Eldrick "Tiger" Woods may
have one of the best jobs in golf.

Born in Cypress, California, Tiger is the only child to parents Earl, a retired U.S. army lieutenant and
Kultida, a woman of Thai descent. Nicknamed "Tiger" at an early age, Tiger's parents knew early on
that their son was born for greatness as they watched a baby Tiger mimic his father's golf swings in his

As Tiger grew up in Orange County, he was considered a golf prodigy by age two. He appeared on the
"Mike Douglas Show" and putted with fellow golfer and comedian, Bob Hope. At five years old, while
other kids were watching TV and learning their alphabet, Tiger was featured in Golf Digest.

When Tiger was young, he didn't have time to hold any simple jobs, such as caddy or salesman.
Winning tournament after tournament during the ages of 8 through 15, Tiger went straight to the big
time. And while a student at Stanford University, he won 10 collegiate events and held the NCAA title,

Tiger was an amateur golfer during 1995 and 1996. Named Sports Illustrated's 1996 Sportsman of the
Year, Tiger received even more notoriety. Then, in late summer of 1996, this golf phenomenon finally
turned pro. He played seven PGA Tour tournaments and won twice. In 1997, he won the Masters for
his first major. And in 1999, Tiger held the title of Player of the Year until 2004, when Vijay Singh
earned the coveted award.

Tiger sure knew how to bring in the millennium with a bang, as many consider Tiger's 2000 season to
be the best on the PGA Tour. At age 24, Tiger became the second pro golfer (along with Ben Hogan)
to win three professional majors in one season. He also set the record for lowest score to par (19) in
any major tournament. Tiger was the youngest golfer to achieve the Career Grand Slam and won his
third straight start on Tour at the Bell Canadian Open, which made him the second man to win the
Triple Crown of Golf in one season. He was ranked12th best golfer of all time by Golf Digest magazine

In 2001, Tiger won the Masters and became the first golfer in history to hold all four professional
majors at the same time. But, in 2003 and 2004, Tiger hit a bit of a slump. Many attributed this curious
occurrence to disagreements with his swing coach, Butch Harmon, while others blamed it on his
marriage. However, at the time, Tiger was working on changing his swing so he could put less
pressure on his surgically repaired left knee.

Whatever the reason, Tiger jumped back into the swing of things in 2005 with a string of outstanding
wins. Tiger won the Buick Invitational, the Ford Championship at Doral, the 2005 Masters, regaining
his number-one spot in the World Rankings, the 2005 Open Championship, six money events on the
PGA Tour and two wins at the World Golf Championships.

In the past, golf was considered an elitist sport, played by mostly lawyers and doctors on their
vacations and lunch breaks. However, Tiger Woods has brought this sport to the masses. With his
charming smile and laid back persona, Tiger Woods has become arguably the most beloved golfer in
history holding the most coveted jobs in golf.

                                                 Tiger Woods: The Best In Golf
                                                             By Lanny Hintz

 There are many sports that people really enjoy watching: Football, basketball, baseball, hockey,
soccer, etc. Yet many of these people don’t like to watch golf, because they say that it lacks the action
and excitement that other sports do. Despite people feeling this way, there is one awesome golfer who
really stands out and makes golf more interesting. This person is Tiger Woods. Fans claim that Tiger
Woods is the absolute best player that there ever was. He has won many times during his career.
Many people ask Tiger Woods who inspired him to play golf and he tells them that his dad inspired
him. There was a game that he had played, yet didn’t do so well. His dad was there with him and told
Tiger to keep his head up, and that wasn’t the last time he would lose a match. His dad was a major
support system for Tiger Woods, which is why it was so devastating for him when his father died. It
was difficult for Tiger to get motivated enough to play for a while, but when he finally did, during a
tournament, he told the media that the particular game that he was playing was for his dad. And he
proceeded to win yet another time.

Tiger Woods may not realize it, but many people play golf and look up to him as a role model. They
practice playing the game as they strive to be as good as Tiger Woods is. This probably makes Tiger
Woods feel good, too, knowing that they are young people out there who look up to him. He knows
what it’s like to be inspired by someone special, so if he can inspire others, then that’s probably okay
with it.

Tiger Woods golfs with such grace and finesse, and many other golfers just don’t have the same
grace. It’s like he was born to play golf, which he probably was, since he plays it so well. I’m sure that
all Tiger Woods fans agree. Maybe Tiger Woods can teach his children to play golf just as well as he
does, and perhaps one of all of them will decide to become professional golfers, just like their dad. This
way, Tiger Woods can inspire his children, just like his dad did for him.
