Invited on the Today Show to promote his new brand, Sun Day Red, whose items are now available for sale, Tiger Woods discussed various topics with host Carson Daly, with whom he has been relatively close since adolescence.

From Scottie Scheffler to his daughter Sam, passing through his father Earl and his son Charlie, Tiger Woods opened up like rarely before during nearly ten minutes in front of the cameras of The Today Show on NBC. A skilled golfer turned TV host, Carson Daly met Tiger and his father Earl during adolescence in California when the state's top talents were competing.

This is likely why Woods agreed to discuss various topics candidly with him.

An Evolving Logo? The Tiger started by explaining that he dreams of "ruining" the logo of his new brand, whose items are now available for sale, by winning another Major victory.

Indeed, consisting of fifteen branches, the design of the Tiger logo for the Sun Day Red brand refers to the fifteen Majors victories since 1997. In case of a 16th triumph, the logo of the brand, revealed ahead of the Genesis Invitational, would need to be "revised." Fan of Scottie Scheffler To achieve this, he will have to beat a certain Scottie Scheffler, the current world number 1, for whom Woods has the greatest admiration.

"We focus a lot on what's happening at his feet in his swing, but the most interesting thing to me is the consistency and quality of his ball striking," explains Woods. "When he putts normally, he wins. When he putts well, he scatters all his opponents, and when he struggles with putting, he still manages to compete." Charlie, a Teenager Like Any Other, or Almost Regarding his own swing, Woods provided some interesting insights when Carson Daly asked him about his relationship with his son since we saw Charlie "coaching" him on the Augusta practice range during the last Masters.

"He often helps me during our practices. Since my right leg was injured in the accident, my hips tend to slide and turn less. When he places a club like you saw at Augusta, it's to help me try to initiate rotation in my movement," Woods explains with a smile.

He says Charlie is very attentive when it comes to golf, which is logical when your father is one of the greatest players of all time. But, like any 15-year-old, he's less open about other subjects. "He's trying to find his place like any teenager of his age.

Actually, I wish Charlie had known my father Earl. I'm sure he would have loved him." "I think about my father every day, he's with me every day," continued Woods about his father, who acknowledges that if he hadn't played golf, he would have pursued a military career, like Earl, to serve his country.

With his daughter Sam, the relationship is completely different since she, who recently caddied for her father at the PNC Championship, doesn't really appreciate golf. Tiger Woods straightforwardly explains that for Sam, golf meant "absent father," and even today, it's through this lens that his daughter, who will celebrate her 17th birthday in less than two months, perceives golf.
