What to know about Tiger Woods and his 2 children

Golf legend Tiger Woods is a proud father of two.

The five-time Masters champion has made a name for himself in the world of golf in the nearly three decades since he turned pro in 1996.

Woods most recently competed in the Masters tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia in April, and the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in Kentucky in May.

Nowadays, Woods, founder of the lifestyle brand Sun Day Red with the TaylorMade Golf Company, also plays caddy for his son Charlie, who has followed in his father's footsteps onto the green.

In March, Woods joined Charlie as he and his high school teammates received their championship rings after winning the 2023 state championship in Florida.

Woods told Golf magazine in a 2022 interview that he aims to both guide and protect his kids as they grow into their own.

"Being a parent, you always want to be the protector and guider of them and teach them skills that they will need in life when you're not around. And so that's the most important thing about being a parent," Woods said at the time.

Tiger Woods has previously said he doesn't formally coach Charlie in golf in order to minimize any pressure his son might feel.

"He just watches me do it, and then he kind of does it," Woods said of Charlie in 2021.

Sam honored her father by introducing him when he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in March 2022, calling him a "fighter."

"You've defied the odds every time," she said.

In December 2023, Sam joined her dad on the golf course at the PNC Championship, where she served as his caddie for the first time.

The PGA Tour posted a video on Instagram showing a sweet moment between the father-daughter duo on the course, captioning the post: "For the first time, Sam Woods is caddying for her father today ❤️."

"Sam was fantastic," Woods said of his daughter, according to Golfweek. "This is the first time she's ever done this, so it couldn't have been any more special for all of us."
