Even if you don't know anything about golf, you have probably heard of Tiger Woods. That's because Eldrick "Tiger" Woods may very well be the best golfer in the history of the sport. Tiger is interesting for a lot of reasons, one of which is his ethnic background. In his own words, Tiger is "Cablinasian". He made that word up to describe the fact that he is part Caucasian, part Black, part Asian and part Native American! Tiger was born in California in 1975, and by the time he was two years old, he was playing golf on television.
A child prodigy, Tiger shot a 48 over nine holes when he was only three years old. At 15, he was the youngest person in golf history to win the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship. He won that title the following two years as well. In 1994, he won the U.S. Amateur Championship, an adult event. He was the youngest player ever to win that title as well.
