Tiger Woods, for all of his personal faults, is indisputably one of the greatest golfers to ever pick up a 9 iron. In his case, it didn’t happen by accident. Because of his unrivaled celebrity, at least in the game of golf, his background has been oft reported. Woods was considered a prodigy by the age of two. This was thanks to extensive training from his father Earl, who was himself an accomplished athlete (He was one of the first black baseball player in the NCAA).
If Woods seems impervious to pressure, it’s because he’s been golfing on national television since he was very young. When he was three, he putted against Bob Hope. At the age of eleven, son was already able to best father, and according to Earl, this has remained constant. As it stands, Woods has won 72 tournaments over the course of his career, and Sports Illustrated named him the best athlete of the aughts.
