Nothing can ever be achieved without hard work and persistence. Feel like giving up? These Tiger Woods quotes may change your mind.
American professional golfer Tiger Woods was born on December 30, 1975. Starting with his amateur golf career, Woods turned professional in 1996 when he was 20. The following year, he had won three PGA Tour events. In a record-breaking performance, he had also won the 1997 Masters. Later that year, he reached the coveted top spot in the world rankings, only months after becoming a pro.
Woods has since been a widely known figure in golf. For about a decade starting from the late ’90s to the early 2010s, he was the top-ranked golfer in the world. Winning major golf championships throughout the years, Woods has established himself as one of the greatest golfers in the history of the sport.
Following his hiatus to resolve personal problems, Woods dropped to Number 58 in the world rankings in November 2011. He regained his top 1 ranking between March 2013 and May 2014. However, injuries led him to undergo four back surgeries between 2014 and 2017. As a result, he disappeared from the world rankings. In 2018, he started competing again, ultimately winning the 2019 Masters.
