Belgium, (Brussels Morning Newspaper) American professional golfer Tiger Woods has won more than a hundred professional golf tournaments. He ranks second all-time in men’s major championships and is tied for first in PGA Tour wins. He also holds many golf records. Today, Woods is regarded as one of the greatest athletes in history, and his popularity is rising day by day. Let’s take a closer look at the career of this legendary athlete.
Born on July 4, 1982, in Chicago, IL, Tiger Woods was adopted by his parents, Earl and Kultida. His mother is of Thai and Dutch ancestry, and his father is an African-American with European heritage. His skin color is a dark brown with blond hair. His eyes are blue. In addition, he has a dark red beard. While his father is a former lieutenant colonel, his mother is African American.
While Tiger is known for his golfing, he has been involved in many scandals. He has dated fitness model Laci Kay Somers, who is now a model. Earlier, he dated Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. However, reports of an affair between the two suggest that the two were just partying. While his relationship with his current partner is still unknown, he has been linked to a number of women, including Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn and fitness model Laci Kay Somers.
A young Tiger is not a small person. His childhood was filled with tragedy and heartbreak. At age eight, he won the 9-10 boys’ event of the Junior World Golf Championships. He was only nine years old at the time. His career skyrocketed after that. He went on to win the Senior World Championships twice. He has also signed endorsement deals with several companies, including Nike, Inc. and Titleist.
Dina Gravell was a professional golfer who met Woods in 1968. The couple had two children together and later divorced in 2009. Although the couple’s relationship was short-lived, their relationship was very successful. In 2004, Woods’ mother met Kultida and they got married in a ceremony. The marriage took place in Thailand. In 2008, their daughter, Dina, was the first child of their three children.
After his wedding to Elin Nordegren in 2004, Woods divorced her long-time girlfriend a few years later. Her divorce led to the allegation of extramarital affairs. After she was divorced, Woods was accused of being a serial cheater and admitted that he had several affairs. He had a few flings with different women. Those affairs had a negative impact on his reputation.
Before he became a superstar in the world of golf, Woods had an unconventional love life. He had two children with Nordegren, but a divorce made him a famous philanderer. His divorce was finalized in 2009, and in 2017, he revealed a relationship with his long-time neighbor Erica Herman. The couple are now engaged, but there was no way to confirm whether or not the relationship was a result of his infidelity.
While his marriage to Elin was brief and unremarkable, his enduring love life is very public. His marriage to the model Elin Nordegren, and their three children, Sam Alexis and Charlie Axel, were born in 2003 and 2009, respectively. Their romance began after Tiger’s second divorce and he went to rehab for sex addiction. He currently resides in Miami, Florida. So, it is unclear how long Tiger has been married.
Among his most notable accomplishments is his charity work. His charitable work is impressive, as he has raised over 82 million dollars in the USA. This is more than enough to fund a number of causes he is passionate about. As a professional athlete, Tiger Woods has done a lot for children and their families. The TGR Foundation invests most of his donations and a part of his net worth in these causes. Its many charitable activities include Caddy for a Cure, the Shriners Hospitals for Children, and the Rainforest Foundation Fund.
The American golfer was born in Cypress, California. He was named after his father, who was a retired U.S. Army officer. His mother was Vietnamese, and he met her father in Thailand in 1968. The two were married. In addition to their respective wives and children, Tiger’s parents are Tiger’s closest friends. In fact, Woods’ wife is often accompanied to the tournaments he attends.
