Tiger Woods is one of the greatest athletes in the world. His dominance in the golf world has been undisputed for a long time, despite the fact that injuries have caused him many problems over the years. In a Q&A interview, Tiger Woods recalled his childhood and the success he achieved during that time.
Even then you could guess what kind of talent he was. “By the time I had turned 12, when I was 11, my mum made me donate all my trophies because I had won 113,”- Tiger Woods said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com. “When I was 11 years old my life peaked.
I got straight A's. I got outstanding for effort and participation. I never got posted or in trouble during recess. I won 36 tournaments that summer. I went 36-0. And I think I had the cutest girlfriend. So yes, life peaked at 11”.
Padraig Harrington spoke about Woods a few days ago. He is optimistic about him. "I think he'll win another Major," Harrington said. "The way I looked at him, I genuinely think he will be in contention. And as I said, I'm sure he wishes every tournament he could play, if it's like a Major, he's going to have a chance."
Tiger Woods and PNC
Woods is happy about his performance at the PNC Championship and that is what is most important to him.
"Well, it was a tough year but also one of the more rewarding years I've had in a while. I've had a lot of setbacks over the last few years, so to be able to have -- I don't know if, as I was alluding to this summer, I don't know if I will ever get back to playing St Andrews in a British Open, but to be able to experience that maybe one last time at this level was very special to me."- he said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com.
