About Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods ranks among the best golfers ever. His net worth has been estimated to be $500 Million. This makes him the second richest “African American”. Tiger is just behind the television personality Oprah Winfrey. Tiger’s wealth comes from the prize money he has won as a professional golfer and the world’s top ranked player. He has also made considerable wealth from product endorsements and sponsorships. The Forbes magazine confirmed in 2009 that Woods was the first athlete in the world to make more than a billion dollars before taxation.

It all happened very quickly for Tiger Woods. He became a professional in 1996, and won his first major in April the next year. It was a record-breaking performance too. Two months later he achieved the #1 position in the world. Woods dominated almost all challenges throughout the 2000s, and became an iconic player that others tried to emulate. He remained the #1 ranked player in the world for 264 weeks between August 1999 and September 2004, and again for 281 weeks between June 2005 and October 2010.

In his playing career, Tiger has broken almost all the records. Nobody has been the world number one for more weeks than him. He is the PGA Player of the Year for ten times, which is a record. He has won the career Grand Slam thrice. Tiger is however second to Jack Nicklaus in the number of professional major golf championships won. But he will surely overtake Jack by the time he finishes. Tiger presently has 14 titles while Jack has 18.

But it all came crashing down for Tiger Woods when his infidelity scandals were exposed in November 2009. He apologized for his misdeeds, but this did not help. He and Elin Nordegren divorced in 2010. His personal life was shattered and this affected his game too. It took him a long time to get going again.
