What is it about Tiger Woods that makes people, despite knowing his history and how everything went down, still adore the golf legend and in a way, perhaps, relate to the man who went from greatness to the biggest fall of his life. We guess, when it comes to athletes, people are more forgiving because they know how hard they have worked to get to where they are, and they didn’t just reach fame because they appeared once in a reality show. In order for us to understand how it all went down for the number one golf player in the world, we have to understand his history, his roots, the pressure he was under growing up and how it all started basically.
Since he was two years old, Tiger was exposed to the world of the prestigious sport of golf as his dad was a golfer himself. He had a professional coach at the age of four and by the age of six he hit a hole-in-one. It was obvious that a star was in the making and that something great would become of the prodigy child named Tiger. After he graduated, the most reputable colleges wanted him to come and play for them and he eventually chose Stanford. Woods was at the top of his game, for years, but it wasn’t always such a smooth road for the professional golfer. In fact, it seemed that every time something bad was happening in the legend’s life, everything else around him fell apart. He was either at the top of his game or hitting rock bottom.
From multi-million dollar contracts with the biggest advertisers to his beautiful family and his consecutive wins, it seemed like everything was going for the star, until it all fell apart. This is the story of the world’s greatest golfer and his own fall from greatness.

We all know him as Tiger Woods, however the legendary golfer didn’t always hold this powerful name, in fact the future golfer who would become a legend, was born under a different name. Eldrick Tont Woods was the legend’s name when he was born on December 30, 1975 to Earl and Kultida Woods. Before he was able to talk, he was already a star in the making. Little did Woods know that his life would have so many ups and downs, just like on the golf course.
