Woods has held numerous golf records. He has been the number one player in the world for the most consecutive weeks and for the greatest total number of weeks of any golfer in history.
He has been awarded PGA Player of the Year a record 11 times and has won the Byron Nelson Award for lowest adjusted scoring average a record eight times. Woods has the record of leading the money list in ten different seasons.
He has won 15 professional major golf championships (trailing only Jack Nicklaus, who leads with 18) and 82 PGA Tour events (tied for first all time with Sam Snead).
Woods leads all active golfers in career major wins and career PGA Tour wins.
Woods is the fifth (after Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus) player to achieve the career Grand Slam, and the youngest to do so.
He is also the second golfer (after Nicklaus) to achieve a career Grand Slam three times.
Tiger woods Scandal
There had been reports in the National Enquirer days earlier that Woods had engaged in an affair with a New York nightclub manager, but tabloid headlines about his troubles really took off when he pulled out of the driveway of his Orlando-area home at 2:30 in the morning of November 27.
He steered his 2009 Escalade into hedges and a tree in a neighbor’s yard before crashing into a fire hydrant, dealing serious damage to the front of the SUV.
The collision was loud enough to wake up his wife, Elin Nordegren, who came running out of the house. She broke the back window of the SUV with a golf club, dragged her husband into the street, then sat with him as he drifted in and out of consciousness, mouth bloodied, wrapped in blankets provided by neighbors.
One of those neighbors, Jarius Adams, called 911 at Nordegren’s request. The Florida Highway Patrol reached the house in about 10 minutes.
“He was mumbling, but didn’t say anything coherent,” Windermere police chief Daniel Saylor told the Associated Press at the time.
There was no alcohol involved in the crash, but Woods had taken prescription Vicodin painkillers earlier that night, as Nordegren told the police.
His injuries were described as serious in the police report, which also noted that he had been unconscious for about six minutes after the crash.
Woods’ personal life seemed just as enviable, with a loving wife and two small children living in a massive Florida mansion.
It all made for a public image that was closer to infallible demigod than professional athlete, which in turn made the events of November 27, 2009, and the subsequent revelations so shocking to the public.
Tiger Woods son age
Charlie is set to compete at the PNC Championship with his dad for the third year in a row, as they look to secure their first win after nearly pulling it off last year (they ultimately came up short to John Daly and John Daly II).
Charlie Woods is 13 years old, having been born Feb. 8, 2009.
One of the first introductions golf fans got to Charlie was after Tiger won the Bridgestone Invitational in 2013, and Charlie went to greet him after in a sweet father-son moment.
The PNC Championship is hardly Charlie’s introduction to golf fans. He’s been dazzling with highlights for some time, even if it’s been more sparing.
For starters, there were his club twirls after shooting at last year’s PNC Championship, emulating a Tiger special.
Tiger Woods’ shoes have drawn a lot of interest since his return to golf earlier this year. When he played the Masters, gone were his Nikes only to be replaced by FootJoys.
After his extensive injuries, it’s no surprise that Woods needs extra support while walking the golf course, and that includes at the links at St Andrews.
Before his long-awaited tee time at the British Open, let’s see (and shop) what else he’s sporting this week, from apparel to golf clubs.
Tiger Woods first signed with Nike when he turned pro in 1996, so you’re used to seeing his Nike TW hat, classic red polo and black pants on a Sunday. What is different from his normal getup is that he’s continuing to wear FootJoy golf shoes this season.
Tiger Woods has been playing with TaylorMade golf clubs and his Scotty Cameron putter for a while now, but playing a links-style course like St Andrews requires some substitutions. In the past, Tiger has been known for swapping in his 2-iron to hit low stingers.
According to the National Enquirer, Woods wants to remarry Nordegren and he’s offering a huge chunk of change to get her back.
The magazine also reports that Tiger even proposed to her over Christmas, getting down on one knee and presenting Nordegren with a ring.
Nordegren is reportedly considering the proposal from Woods, who is desperate to get Nordegren back, but wants a $350 million anti-cheating clause added to the contract.
Woods’ proposed deal reportedly is worth over half of his estimated $600 million fortune.
“Tiger didn’t even balk at the demand. Even though his accountants think he’s crazy, he’s ready to sign the pre-nup and set a wedding date,” a source told the magazine.
“The guy has never recovered from being dumped by Elin. He’s dated lots of models and bimbos, but none of them were more than a one night stand.”
Woods and Nordegren met in 2001 after being introduced by Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik, for whom Elin was a nanny. The couple became engaged in November 2003 and married more than a year later in October 2004.
Woods and Nordegren have two children, but the marriage went awry after Nordegren discovered Woods had been cheating on her with multiple women. After learning of such news at Thanksgiving in November 2009, she allegedly attacked Woods, who crashed his car into a tree.
Since the divorce, Nordegren has dated billionaire Jamie Dingman and reportedly NHL player Douglas Murray.
