Biography:

Sports Speaker Tiger Woods was born ready for the bright lights and the cameras even when he stepped onto the stage of The Mike Douglas Show at just 2 years old and sank putt after putt on a mini green. He is now one of the most successful professional golfers of all time as well as being among the highest paid athletes in the world. Tiger started breaking numerous records at an early age. He eventually became known as the youngest player and first African-American player to win golf’s biggest tournament, the Masters. He has also been ranked #1 in the world for a majority of his career and for the most consecutive weeks in PGA Tour history. He is widely credited for increasing the popularity of golf by creating interest in new audiences and for capturing the largest TV audiences to date.

During his college career at Stanford University, he won numerous U.S. golf titles before he turned professional in 1996. The start of his fame was after he won the 1997 Masters by 12 strokes at the age of twenty-one with a record 4-round score of 270. Later that year, he made his first appearance at the British Open and tied the record of 64. Tiger has been awarded the PGA Player of the Year eleven times and won fourteen professional major golf championships making him second highest player behind Jack Nicklaus, with eighteen. He has more career Tour and major wins than any other. Tiger has taken home seventy-nine PGA Tour events, putting him second highest of all time behind Sam Snead. He’s not only the fastest and youngest golfer to win fifty tournaments on tour, but he is only the second golfer to achieve three career Grand Slams. Tiger is the only golfer to win the Silver and Gold Medal at the Open Championship and has won a total of eighteen World Golf Championships.

His recognitions don’t stop there. In 2007, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and First Lady Maria Shriver inducted Tiger into the California Hall of Fame. The Associated Press named him Athlete of the Decade in 2009 and has since been named Male Athlete of the Year a record breaking four times. He has also been the only person to be titled Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated more than once.

Tiger has been involved in many endorsement deals and countless print and TV ad campaigns during his professional career with industry leading companies such as Gatorade, Titleist, American Express, Accenture, and Nike. He is solely responsible for taking the Nike Golf brand and turning it into the leading golf apparel company in the world. His philanthropic endeavors stem from his own charity foundation that he founded in 1996 to connect with and nurture today’s youth.
