Eldrick, commonly known as Tiger Woods, is the son of Kultida and Earl Woods. His unique first name was chosen by his mother, combining the initial letter of his father’s name (‘E’) and ending with the letter of her own name (‘K’). His middle name, Tont, reflects his Thai heritage. The nickname ‘Tiger’ was bestowed in honor of his father’s friend, South Vietnamese Colonel Vuong Dang Phong, who was also known as Tiger.

He has two half-brothers and a half-sister from his father’s previous marriage.


In November 2003, Woods got engaged to Elin Nordegren, a former Swedish model and the daughter of Barbro Holmberg, former minister of migration, and Thomas Nordegren, a radio journalist. They tied the knot on October 5, 2004, at the Sandy Lane resort in Barbados. However, in 2010, the couple went through a divorce.

Tiger Woods wife


On March 18, 2013, Woods revealed his relationship with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, but they separated in May 2015. Rumored to be with stylist Kristin Smith from November 2016 to August 2017, Woods was then in a relationship with Erica Herman, a restaurant manager, from late 2017 to late 2022. However, in early 2023, Herman filed a lawsuit against Woods, claiming a violation of a non-disclosure agreement under the Speak Out Act.


Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren welcomed two children together. Their first child, a daughter named Sam Alexis Woods, was born in 2007. The choice of the name ‘Sam’ was a tribute to Woods’ father, who had always referred to him by that name. Subsequently, their son, Charlie Axel Woods, was born in 2009.


After a remarkable junior, college, and amateur golf journey, Tiger Woods turned professional in 1996 at the age of 20. By April 1997, he had clinched three PGA Tour victories and his initial major, the 1997 Masters, setting a record with a 12-stroke triumph. Achieving the world number one ranking in June 1997, Woods dominated golf throughout the first decade of the 21st century, securing 13 major championships.

The subsequent decade witnessed Woods grappling with personal challenges and injuries. Taking a hiatus from December 2009 to April 2010 to address marital issues, he admitted to marital infidelities, resulting in divorce. Despite falling to 58th in the world rankings in 2011, Woods reclaimed the number-one spot from March 2013 to May 2014. However, a series of back surgeries from 2014 to 2017 and limited tournament participation led to his exit from the top 1,000 golfers.

Returning to competitive golf, Woods made a triumphant comeback, winning the Tour Championship in 2018 and the 2019 Masters, his first major in 11 years. Boasting numerous records, including 15 major championships and 82 PGA Tour victories, Woods holds the record for the most consecutive weeks as the world’s number one golfer.

Despite enduring injuries and personal setbacks, Woods has left an indelible mark on golf, earning accolades such as 18 World Golf Championships, a 1999 Ryder Cup victory, and the 2019 Presidential Medal of Freedom. A serious car collision in February 2021 prompted emergency surgery, and while Woods signaled the end of his full-time professional career in November 2021, he made a comeback at the 2022 Masters.
