Tiger Woods Biography

Tiger Woods grew up in Orange County, California. Earl Woods, his athletic father, introduced him to golf when he was only two years old. Earl was a single-digit handicap amateur golfer and one of Kansas State University’s first African-American college baseball players.

He told reporters that he used to want to play baseball like his father but had given up after rupturing his rotator cuff. Tiger was able to play at the Navy golf course adjacent to the Joint Forces Training Base in Los Alamitos because his father was a member of the military. Tiger also played a round at Long Beach’s Heartwell Golf Course, a par 3 course.

When he was 13 years old, he competed in his first major national junior tournament, the 1989 Big I. In the final round, he was paired with pro John Daly, who was relatively unknown at the time.

Woods first met Jack Nicklaus as a teenager at the Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles, where Nicklaus was giving a clinic to the club’s members. Woods appeared on the show and impressed Nicklaus and the audience with his abilities and potential.
