Just as negotiations are underway between Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth fund and the PGA Tour, this is Tiger Woods' opening to a global league that could also include LIV Golf players.

"There are daily and weekly emails where we talk about the golf of the future. We aim for the best", added the Californian who, from today to Sunday, in California, will be the most awaited protagonist of the Genesis Invitational.

Eldrick Tont Woods, better known as Tiger Woods, was born on December 30, 1975, in Cypress, California. He is an American professional golfer. Considered one of the greatest golfers of all time, Tiger Woods is one of the most popular athletes of the early 21st century.

With 15 major tournament victories, he revolutionized the world of golf with his athletic achievements and by attracting a new audience. A prodigy, Tiger Woods began playing golf at a very young age and achieved exceptional success in all junior categories.

As an amateur, he was closely watched for his extraordinary abilities, and he turned professional at the end of the summer of 1996. Winning the Masters in 1997, he became the world number one less than a season after turning professional.

Dominant throughout most of the 2000s, various knee and back problems forced him to reinvent his game. A commercial figure and the face of Nike, Tiger Woods secured numerous lucrative contracts off the course, making him one of the wealthiest athletes of the 2000s despite scandals tarnishing his personal life and marriage in 2009.

In April 2019, at the age of 43, he achieved the remarkable feat of winning his fifth Masters and his 15th career major title at Augusta, eleven years after his last major victory. On May 6, 2019, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States, by President Donald Trump. On March 8, 2022, he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
