Tiger Woods is an American professional golfer. He is tied for first in PGA Tour wins, ranks second in men’s major championships, and holds numerous golf records.
Woods is largely considered to be one of the best golfers of all time and is widely regarded as one of the most famous athletes in the history of modern sports. He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame earlier this year.
Woods turned professional when he was only 20 years old in 1996, after having a successful career as a junior, in college, and as an amateur golfer.
He had won three PGA Tour events by the end of April 1997, in addition to his first major championship, the 1997 Masters, which he won by a record-breaking 12 shots. This victory at the Masters set a new record.
In June of 1997, a little over six months after going professional, he ascended to the top spot in the world rankings for the very first time. During the first decade of the 21st century, Tiger Woods was unrivaled as a competitor in the sport of golf.
Between the months of August 1999 and September 2004 (a total of 264 consecutive weeks), as well as between the months of June 2005 and October 2010, he held the number one spot in the global golf rankings (281 consecutive weeks). During this time period, he was victorious in 13 of golf’s most prestigious tournaments.
