Eldrick Tont “Tiger” Woods was born in Cypress, California on December 30, 1975, to Earl and Tida Woods. He is the couple’s only child. From his father’s first marriage, he has two half-brothers, Earl Jr. and Kevin, and a half-sister, Royce.

Tiger’s mother was born in Thailand. Tiger’s ethnicity is Cablinasian, which means he is Caucasian, Black, American Indian, and Asian. Tiger was named after his father’s friend, Colonel Vuong Dang Phong, who was also known as Tiger.

Woods was born and raised in Orange County, California. Earl Woods, Woods’ father, introduced him to golf before he was two years old. 


At the age of 19, Woods competed in his first PGA Tour major, the 1995 Masters, and finished tied for 41st as the only amateur to make the cut; two years later, he won the tournament by 12 shots.

In 1996, at the age of 20, he became the first golfer in history to win three straight U.S. Amateur titles, as well as the NCAA individual golf championship.

He dropped out of college after two years to pursue a career as a professional golfer.

Woods went professional in August 1996, at the age of 20, and instantly secured advertising deals with Nike and Titleist, which were among the most lucrative endorsement contracts in golf history at the time.

Woods was voted Sportsman of the Year by “Sports Illustrated” in 1996, as well as PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. He won his first major, the Masters, on April 13, 1997, by 12 shots in a record-breaking performance, becoming the tournament’s youngest winner at the age of 21.

He achieved the record for the fastest ascension to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings two months later. Following a disappointing 1998 season, Woods concluded the 1999 season with eight victories, including the PGA Championship.
