According to his official bio, the 33-year-old, who became a professional golfer in 1996, has won 93 tournaments so far. A child prodigy, he appeared on the Mike Douglas Show when he was two and a half years old, putting with American comedian Bob Hope.
At 25, he became the first ever to hold all four professional major championships at the same time -the US PGA championship, US Open, Open Championship and US Masters. He is currently ranked as the world’s number one golf player.
Earlier this week, Woods announced on his website that he is taking an “indefinite hiatus from golf.”
“I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person,” he wrote following an ongoing sex scandal affecting his private life.”
