Read more about Tiger! Eldrick "Tiger" Woods, now 22 years of age, has had a remarkable start since becoming a professional golfer in the late summer of 1996. He has won eight tournaments, six of those on the PGA Tour, including the 1997 Masters Tournament. At the age of 21 years, 3 months, 14 days, Tiger was the youngest Masters champion ever. He also was the first major championship winner of African or Asian heritage. He is the son of Earl Woods, a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army, and his wife, Kultida, a native of Thailand. He was nicknamed "Tiger" after a Vietnamese soldier and friend of his father, Vuong Dang Phong, to whom his father had also given that nickname. Born on December 30, 1975, Tiger grew up in Cypress, California, 35 miles southeast of Los Angeles. He was not out of the crib before he took an interest in golf, at age 6 months, watching as his father hit golf balls into a net and imitating his swing. He appeared on the "Mike Douglas Show" at age 2, putting with Bob Hope. He shot 48 for nine holes at age 3 and was featured in Golf Digest at age 5. Tiger attended Standford where he went on to win the Fred Haskins and Jack Nicklaus College Player of the Year awards. Today, he continues to write himself into the history books as one of the world's most dynamic and talented golfers.
