Woods won first major in 2019 after years of private troubles
Woods was the most successful golfer in the world in the 1990s and 2000s, winning fourteen majors.
After that he fell into a deep trough due to private problems. After a few difficult years, he managed to return to the top and Woods won his fifteenth major in 2019 with The Masters.
Last week, a documentary about Woods was released on HBO, in which one of his many mistresses spoke.
