Woods but not only. Because Bubba Watson, who wore the "Green Jacket" in both 2012 and 2014, and has now moved up to LIV Golf, the Arab Super League, has also been spotted on Magnolia Lane. The same goes for Scottie Scheffler, world number 1 and reigning champion of The Masters, and Rory McIlroy who in Augusta this year will try to fulfill his dream of completing the Grand Slam Eldrick Tont Woods (born December 30, 1975), better known as Tiger Woods, is an American golfer.

Considered among the best golfers of all time,[3] as well as the best of the modern era, in his more than twenty-year career he won 110 professional tournaments, including 15 majors, making him the most successful player in history ; held the number one position in the OWG world rankings for a total of 683 weeks, 281 of which were consecutive weeks (from June 12, 2005 to October 30, 2010), and is the only golfer to have won all four majors in the modern era within a single year (between 2000 and 2001).

In 2014, he became the first sportsman in the world to surpass one billion dollars in earnings from wins and sponsorships. He was later surpassed by Michael Jordan and his net worth is estimated at $1.8 billion as of 2023, making him the second highest paid sportsman ever.

In 2019, US President Donald Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States of America. Winner of 15 major tournaments (second only to Jack Nicklaus, with 18) between 1997 and 2019, he indelibly marked the history of this sport, bringing it under the spotlight after years in which such a dominant and charismatic figure was missing.

Among the many moments that have gone down in golf history, they remember the incredible holed approach to the 16th of the last round of the 2005 Masters, and the victory after a play-off hole against Rocco Mediate at the U.S.

2008 Open at the end of the four rounds played with a tibia fracture and a knee ligament that will be reconstructed a few days later. Historic rivalries with Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh, among the only athletes able to undermine his dominance, even if only on and off.
