Tiger Woods: "In the past I was a victim of racism"

Tiger Woods: America's Son is the new documentary from The Undefeated, a sports and pop culture site run by ESPN, which also tells of Tiger Woods' childhood and the racial injustices that the Californian champion has faced since he was just a teenage.

When asked: "Have you ever had to deal with racism in the different golf clubs you've played at?", Tiger replies: "Not every day, but every time I went to a big club. People stare at you, as if to say: 'What are you doing here? I always told myself that if I won that tournament I could change things and become bigger than even a legend like Jack Nicklaus.

The goal was to become like Michael Jordan in basketball."

Tiger Woods: on the green with his son and about Black Lives Matter

Father and son will play the PNC tournament. The event will take place December 19-20 at the Ritz-Carlton Club in Orlando, Central Florida.

At the 2019 at Augusta National Woods hugged his son after winning the Masters for the fifth time, after 4 back operations. It was his 15th Major, but his first triumph in front of his son. Aaron Stewart once made tandem with Paul Azinger after the boy's father, Payne Stewart, died in a plane crash.

Annika Sorenstam is playing with her father Tom. On the pitch this year Justin Thomas with his father Mike Thomas, a pro from Kentucky. For Johnston, Woods' yes is fantastic news: they were neighbors on Isleworth when Woods went pro in 1996.

After 23 years, Tiger said yes. The tournament will be behind closed doors due to Covid. The tournament will be broadcast on Nbc. Woods is golf's biggest attraction. Langer, Raymond Floyd and Larry Nelson have won multiple times with different children.

To participate you must have won a Major or The Players Championship and the son must not have played in the Pga Tour. Other big names will challenge Woods: John Daly, Greg Norman, Nick Price, Lee Trevino and Gary Player. Tiger said: "I don't know how excited I am to play with Charlie in our first official tournament together.

It was fantastic to see him improve as a junior, and it will be incredible to play together as a team in the PNC championship." "Fantastic, that's how the company progresses," these are the words of Tiger Woods, who for the first time publicly talks in favor of the Black Lives Matters movement.

Woods is gearing up for the Memorial Tournament in Ohio, and at the conference he talked about the Black Lives Matter movement and the changes it is triggering in American society. He said: "Change is a fantastic thing, provided that we can change things without hurting the innocent.

This has unfortunately happened, and we hope it won't happen again in the future. But such a movement, and change are fantastic things. that's how society makes progress and how we grow no one else loses their life in the future, getting closer to a more socially just society."

Meanwhile Tiger Woods prepares to come back to the green in the Memorial Tournament, scheduled for July 16 to 19 in Dublin (in Ohio), training with his son Charlie. The American champion said: "For the moment I can still beat him, but he is beginning to understand how to play and does nothing but ask me pertinent questions!" In the footsteps of the phenomenon dad, his son Charlie has to deal with a special trainer.

Tiger is in fact his only coach and he hopes that one day his special pupil will break his records. "It all depends on him," explained the Californian in an interview on GOLF TV. Woods after 5 months of distance, thanks to the lockdown, from a tournament
official of the PGA Tour, he is chasing the absolute record of 83 triumphs in the maximum American golf Tour.
