Following his second shot into the water at the 14th hole, Tiger Woods had to count on the talent of his son to achieve their sixth birdie of the day as a team, on the course of the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club located in Orlando, Florida .

Despite a risky green approach that ended up in the bunker, Charlie was able to pull himself together and make a superb exit more than 30 meters from the hole. Unfortunately, the Tiger's attempt came close to going in, but it was Charlie's talent that allowed Team Woods to shine on the field.

Eldrick Tont Woods, better known as Tiger Woods, is an American golfer born December 30, 1975 in Cypress, California. His worldwide fame can be explained by his incredible success in the field of golf, which made him one of the most popular athletes of the early 21st century.

By winning up to fifteen major tournaments, he shook up the world of golf by attracting a new audience and writing his name in the history of this sport. From an early age, Tiger Woods showed a gift for golf and had a remarkable career in all junior categories.

His unparalleled talent was quickly recognized, and he turned professional after the summer of 1996. He won the Masters in 1997, and established himself as world number 1 shortly after beginning his professional career. Dominating the 2000s, he had to deal with various injuries, notably to his knees and back, which forced him to reinvent his game.

Tiger Woods is also a business icon and the face of Nike. His popularity allowed him to multiply lucrative contracts outside the golf course, making him one of the wealthiest athletes of the 2000s, despite the scandals which punctuated his private life, notably his marital breakdown in 2009.

In April 2019, at the age of 43, he achieved a resounding feat by winning his fifth Masters and his fifteenth major champion title, eleven years after his last victory of this caliber. A testament to his undeniable talent and dedication to his sport.

On May 6, 2019, he was honored with America's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, awarded by United States President Donald Trump. A deserved recognition of his status as an outstanding champion. And finally, on March 8, 2022, he entered the illustrious World Golf Pantheon, the World Golf Hall of Fame, thus affirming his legacy in the world of golf.

Achievements that are a testament to his dedication, hard work and winning mentality.
