How did he start playing golf?
Tiger Woods started playing golf since he could walk. His dad set up a miniature driving range in his garage. When Woods was nine month he was imitating his dad swing and Woods did it so perfectly that the ball went flying. At the age of three Woods putted against comedian Bob Hope.

Career achievements
When I think about sports golf pops up in my head. When I am thinking about golf it makes me think about my favorite player Tiger Woods. Mostly what I am interested in him is how did he start playing golf and his education? Also what career achievements did he win and did race play a factor in this sport? My last one is his endorsements?
