Eldrick Tont Woods (born 1975), who goes by his nickname, Tiger, is a professional golfer. He has won only 1 major golf tournament in the past 10 years. In his career, he has won 15 major golf tournaments, second only to Jack Nicklaus' record haul of 18.[1]

He is perhaps the most self-centered and overpromoted favorite of the liberal media in the world. He appears frequently on magazine covers and Nike ads, and after a gap of eleven years since winning a major tournament, finally regained the Masters title in 2019. His remarks to the press are often self-centered. At the Masters in 2013, he was given merely a two-stroke penalty for a rules infraction that many felt should have resulted in disqualification from the tournament.[2]

In 2012, the liberal media declared Woods to be a favorite to win the Masters. In fact, he turned in his worst performance there in 17 years, and his swearing and kicking of a club were captured by a camera. After he learned that people did not appreciate that, he declared:[3]

I certainly heard that people didn’t like me kicking the club. I didn’t like it either. I hit it in the bunker, and it didn’t feel good on my toe, either.

Despite showing promise of becoming the greatest golfer ever, Woods's career and athletic achievement slumped amid reports of adultery. His wife subsequently obtained a divorce.[4]

He has had three knee operations, including the removal of a benign tumor and also a cyst.[5][6]

Woods does better in obscure competitions on the PGA Tour, where he is in second place on the tour list, behind Sam Snead. In 2018, Woods finally won the Tour Championship.[7] Woods has won the Masters Tournament 5 times, most recently in 2019, after a gap of 13 years.
