Back in 2015, the 46-year-old was competing at the Players Championship. Though many fans were excited to watch the golfer play at the TPC Sawgrass, it was a week filled with personal challenges for Tiger Woods. The week marked the 9th death anniversary of his father, Earl Woods.

To worsen the situation, Woods had just broken up with his three-year-long girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn. With so much going on in his life, the 15-time Major winner made sure that it didn’t affect his golf game.

However, this wasn’t the first time Tiger Woods faced adversity in his life. The golfer made sure that his life off the course didn’t affect his game on the course. He further shared how he encountered such obstacles in his life mentally while competing in the tournaments.


Tiger said, “Once you’re inside the ropes, it’s time to tee it up and time to play. You go out there, and for me I focus, I get into my little world, my little zone and do the best I possibly can for that — well, it used to be four hours; now it’s five-hour rounds — a five-hour time period, grind it out and win golf tournaments. Because at the end, to me, that’s what I want to do that particular week, is win a tournament”.
