Eldrick Tont "Tiger" Woods is an American professional golfer who is among the most successful golfers of all time.

He has been one of the highest-paid athletes in the world for several years.

Following an outstanding amateur and two-year college golf career, Woods turned professional in late summer 1996.

By April 1997 he had already won his first major, the 1997 Masters in a record-breaking performance, winning the tournament by 12 strokes and pocketing $486,000.

He first reached the number one position in the world rankings in June 1997.

Through the 2000s, Woods was the dominant force in golf, spending 264 weeks from August 1999 to September 2004 and 281 weeks from June 2005 to October 2010 as world number one.

From December 2009 to early April 2010, Woods took leave from professional golf to focus on his marriage after he admitted infidelity, but he and his wife Elin Nordegren eventually divorced.

His many extra-marital indescretions were revealed by several different women, through many worldwide media sources.

This was followed by a loss of golf form, and his ranking gradually fell to a low of No. 58 in November 2011.
