Who are Tiger Woods Kids? Wiki-Bio, Divorce, Relationships.
For many, Tiger Woods is a name that is almost synonymous with golf. As one of the first African-Americans to reach such heights, Woods’s journey was lived by millions around the world. While his success inspired fans and fellow golfers alike, his personal life had seen better days. In 2009, Tiger Woods was accused of having a relationship with multiple women, all while he was married to his then-wife, Elin Nordegren. Following Woods’s admission of the relationships, the pair’s marriage fell apart. However, as the pair had two kids, Sam Alexis Woods and Charlie Axel Woods, they remained good friends over the years and focused on raising their kids. In this article, we will take a closer look at the kids of Tiger Woods.
Sam Alexis Woods:
Sam Alexis Woods was born on the 8th of June, 2007. Sam was born just 24 hours after her dad had been crowned as the runner-up in the 2007 US Open. Woods wanted to give his daughter a meaningful name and took inspiration from the name his late father used to call him. Earl’s nickname for Tiger was Sam. In an interview, Woods revealed that the name seemed right for the family.
“We wanted to have a name that would be meaningful to either side of the family, my side or Elin’s side because she was born the day after Father’s Day, It just happened to fit. My father had always called me Sam since the day I was born. He rarely ever called me Tiger.”
Charlie Axel Woods:
Charlie Axel Woods was born on the 8th of February, 2009. Around the same time, Tiger’s marriage with Elin was already falling apart. While Sam doesn’t show much interest in gold, Young Charlie takes after his father in terms of interests. In the US Kids Golf event in 2016, Charlie tied for the second position and looks to continue his golf journey.
In an interview with Golf.com, Charlie revealed that both his kids are into soccer. While he did admit that he would be more than happy if his kids took up golf, he will support them in whatever they want to do.
If they want to play golf, that’s great. If they don’t, that’s fine too. As long as they have a good time playing sports. I find that a lot of fun now, to be able to physically get out and pass the ball around with them. I get such a big kick out of watching them compete and play. It’s so much fun to see how happy and passionate they are about soccer.”
Coming Clean with his kids:
Tiger is incredibly close to his kids and loves spending time with them. Following the notorious scandal in 2009, Tiger has come clean with his kids admitting that it was his fault that he and Eilin were no longer together.
In an interview with Times magazine, Tiger admitted that he talked to his kids about the divorce.
“I’ve taken the initiative with the kids, and told them up front, ‘Guys, the reason why we’re not in the same house, why we don’t live under the same roof, mommy and daddy, is because daddy made some mistakes.”
But Elin and Tiger remained good friends over the years and have always focused on raising their kids. As of now, Tiger is in a happy relationship with his girlfriend, Erica Herman.
