What made Tiger Woods a superstar? In November 1990, he was interviewed at the age of 14 (you may think, when did Tiger Woods start playing golf, well, the correct answer would be- in the 1996, when he was 20 years old) and was able to drive over 300 yards and a scratch golfer. The interviewer asked Tiger, what did he think made him such a great golfer.
Tiger simply said, ” It’s my competitiveness. By that I mean, when you must make a putt or a shot, you drop into a zone and do it.”
In 2015, when Tiger returned to golf after several back operations , he said, ”Competing is steel the same. I’m trying to beat everybody out there. That hasn’t changed. I prepare to win and expect to go and do that.. The only difference is that I won in The Masters when Jordan Spieth was steel in diapers.”
Tiger has often been quoted many times about his desire to compete. ”As a kid, I might have been psycho, I guess, but I used to throw golf balls and get them stuck in the trees and then try and somehow make par from them. I thought that was fun.”
”People don’t understand that when I grew up, I was never the most talented. I was never the biggest. I was never the fastest. I certainly was never the strongest. The only thing I had was my work ethic, and that’s been what has gotten me this far.”
