However I really did enjoy reading it...
Four months later in December, Woods celebrated his twenty-first birthday. He marked the occasion with a legal name change, from Eldrick to Tiger. Woods had been called Tiger by his father even as a youngster. The nickname stuck, and Woods had always been known to his friends, and to the press, as Tiger. It soon became evident that he was destined for success. Sports Illustrated named him 1996 "Sportsman of the Year," and by January of 1997, he had already won three professional tournaments. He was a media sensation."
Woods is credited too with popularizing the sport of golf, not only among African American people and other minorities, but among children of all backgrounds. His personal sponsorship of programs for children has been reported for years, and at least one corporate sponsor found that in order to secure an endorsement (an official document of agreement) from Tiger Woods the price would include the added cost of a generous donation to the Tiger Woods Foundation for inner city children.
In 1999 Woods achieved the greatest moment in his career when he won the PGA Championship by one shot. He had been in the lead for most of the tournament, but lost his lead on the last day, making his one stroke victory over Sergio Garcia even more memorable for the crowd that had gathered to watch. Woods continued his success in November 1999 when he shot the best total ever in the World Cup, helping to lead the United States to victory in the tournament. He was also named the PGA Tour Player of the Year for the second time on November 30, 1999, earning more that $6.6 million in prize money during the season.
On January 9, 2000, Woods won the Mercedes Championship. It was his fifth consecutive victory and, at the time, golf's longest winning streak in forty-six years. On February 7, 2000, he extended that streak by winning the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He became the first player since Ben Hogan (1912–1997) in 1948 to win six straight tour events. He went on to win the Bay Hill Invitational on March 19, 2000. On June 18, 2000, he won the U.S. Open, his third major championship. The next month, on July 23, he won the British Open, thus winning the Grand Slam. He became the youngest player to win all four major championships and just the fifth ever.
On April 8, 2001, Woods won the sixty-fifth Masters Tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club. The win made him the only golfer in history to hold the four major championship titles at the same time. Woods won the sixty-sixth Masters Tournament on April 14, 2002. At the turn of the twenty-first century, Woods was the most dominant figure in all of sports, and his name will surely be decorated throughout the record books before his career is over"
Much like Mozart, who began performing music at age six, and Bobby Fischer,
who won the US Chess Championship at age 14, Woods was a child prodigy.
In fact, Woods broke 70 strokes on a major golf course at age 12 and putted
against Bob Hope on television at age three.
Woods was recruited heavily going into college and eventually chose Stanford
He had an impressive college career, including three straight amateur titles
and being named Pac-10 Player of the Year, NCAA First-Team All-American and
Stanford's Male Freshman of the Year (an award that included all sports).
He also declared a major in economics, and college teammate Notah Begay III
nicknamed him "Urkel."
Sounds like Begay really showed him.
Bob May during the 2000 PGA Championship was perhaps the biggest threat to
Tiger's early reign.
After a hard-fought battle, the two went to a nail-biting playoff, where May
would succumb to Tiger's dominance.
After a birdie on the first playoff hole and then two straight holes in which
he finished even with May, Tiger walked away a champion yet again.
His first taste of adversity.
