To the surprise of many, Tiger Woods is back, and he is looking to score! After a near-fatal car crash, less than 14 months ago, walking was questionable. Will he be able to make it up and down Augusta's famed hills?

This is his first significant competition since shattering his right leg. The five-time Masters champion is drawing a huge crowd. Are you a Tiger Woods Fan? We are! Because the forum has been buzzing and questioning his comeback we decided to compile this fun little list. Whether he makes the cut or not Tiger will go down in history, so make sure to read on and sharpen your Tiger knowledge.
  1. His given name is Eldrick Tont, his father gave him the nickname after a fellow soldier and friend.
  2. At the young age of 8 Tiger first broke 80, and at the age of 12, he broke 70. What were you doing at 12?
  3. He is the only man to have won the US Amateur Championship three years in a row (1994, 95, and 96)
  4. Tiger became the youngest golfer to win the career grand slam and at the 2019 ZOZO Championship he tied Sam Snead for the most PGA Tour wins ever with 82. He was only 24.
  5. Tiger attended Stanford University. He did not graduate and left to turn professional.
  6. Woods is a Buddhist. “... I was raised a Buddhist, and I actively practiced my faith from childhood until I drifted away from it in recent years. Buddhism teaches that a creation of things outside ourselves causes an unhappy and pointless search for security. It teaches me to stop following every impulse and to learn restraint. Obviously, I lost track of what I was taught."
  7. He has spent 683 weeks as #1 in the Official World Golf Ranking. That’s more than double Greg Norman, the runner-up.
  8. He always wears red on the final day of a tournament; his mother feels that it’s a powerful color and brings him good luck.
  9. Tiger Woods is the richest sportsman. His net worth is around $640 million. He is the first athlete ever to earn a billion dollars from his sport.
    He got laser eye surgery in 1999, which gave him 20/15 vision. After this, he won seven of his next 10 events.

I met my best friend at 12. Jenny likes to call him Hughie because of his size and girth. I got more than 70 strokes in, because I have stamina unlike fanboy social here. My guess is you like to slurp Lebron and Jordan too?

Maybe MarkyMark and I will send you some autographed photos of some real stars

Welcome to the forum. Are you a new staff member?? Do we know you from elsewhere?? Odd 1st post for a newbie if not staff.

Tiger had a hell of a day and like Rudy said & often starts slow. Playing in the afternoon tomorrow will give us answers if he really has a chance.

Tough to put Tiriac on the list since his money came way after he retired. He made his money in Banking. If he would have made it while in sports or from subsequent endorsements, then ok but, he is 100% a financier now.
