Today, he'll take to the Lost Lake Golf Club course to try and secure a spot in the "Monday Qualifier," which will offer four places for the coveted event scheduled from Thursday, February 29th, to Sunday, March 3rd.

The 15-year-old, who played alongside his father in the PNC Championship in Orlando last December, dreams of competing in his first tournament on the top American male circuit, alongside the world's biggest names. Eldrick Tont Woods, better known as Tiger Woods, was born on December 30, 1975, in Cypress, California.

He is an American golfer. Considered one of the greatest golfers of all time, he is one of the most popular athletes of the early 21st century. Winner of 15 major tournaments, he revolutionized the world of golf with his sporting achievements and by attracting a new audience.

A prodigy, Tiger Woods started playing golf at a very young age and had an exceptional career in all junior categories. He turned professional at the end of the summer of 1996, after being closely watched as an amateur for his extraordinary skills.

Winning the Masters in 1997, he became the world number one less than a season after turning professional. Dominating most of the 2000s, various knee and back issues forced him to reinvent his game. As 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 affecting his private life and his marriage in 2009.

In April 2019, at the age of 43, he achieved the feat of winning his 5th Masters and his 15th 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.
