Pro golfer Tiger Woods was born in Cypress, California, in 1975. He won the U.S. Masters at Augusta in 1997 with a record score at age 21, making him the youngest man and the first African American to earn the title.
Tiger Woods was brought up in Orange County, where he was influenced to start playing golf by his father, who was a golfer. He went to Western High School in Anaheim and, upon graduation, got a golf scholarship to join Stanford University.
Woods won another 13 majors and was named the PGA Player of the Year 10 times over the next 12 years, but he struggled to regain his top form after personal problems surfaced in 2009. With his victory at the 2019 Masters, Woods claimed his first major title in nearly 11 years.
Woods studied at Stanford University, and won a number of amateur U.S. golf titles before turning professional in 1996. He shot to fame after winning the U.S. Masters at Augusta in 1997 — with a record score of 270 — at the age of 21.
Woods was the youngest person to earn the title, and the first African-American to accomplish this feat.
In his first appearance at the British Open later that year, Woods tied the course record of 64. The next few years brought even more successes, including four U.S. PGA titles, three U.S. Open wins, three Open Championship wins, and three U.S. Masters wins.
In 2003 among Woods’s five wins were the Buick Invitational and the Western Open. The next year, Woods won only one official PGA Tour championship.
While he may have had some challenges on the course, his personal life was running smoothly. Woods married his longtime girlfriend Elin Nordegren, a Swedish model, in October of 2004.
Returning to dominate the sport, he won six championships in 2005 and was voted the PGA Tour Player of Year for the seventh time in nine years.
On October 5, 2004, Tiger wed Elin Nordegren at the Sandy Lane Hotel in Barbados after a three-year courtship. A former psychology student and nanny to the family of pro golfer Jesper Parnevik, Elin had met Tiger at the Williams World Challenge in 2001. The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Sam Alexis, on June 18, 2007.
The birth of his first child, he says, helped him get over the death of his father, who passed away the previous summer. As the loss and the pain began to subside, he began to recover his form after a while off the winners’ podium, earning victory in seven consecutive events by January 2007.
In 2009 Tiger and Elin welcomed their second child, Charlie Axel. To most they seemed like the picture-perfect family. But in November that year, everything fell apart.
The couple were hit by numerous allegations that Tiger had been unfaithful with different women. Media interest in the stories began to grow after Tiger was involved in a car crash at his home, and at first refused to talk to police.
