There are many sports that people really enjoy watching: Football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, etc. Yet many of these people don’t like to watch golf, because they say that it lacks the action and excitement that other sports do. Despite people feeling this way, there is one awesome golfer who really stands out and makes golf more interesting. This person is Tiger Woods. Fans claim that Tiger Woods is the absolute best player that there ever was. He has won many times during his career. Many people ask Tiger Woods who inspired him to play golf and he tells them that his dad inspired him. There was a game that he had played, yet didn’t do so well. His dad was there with him and told Tiger to keep his head up, and that wasn’t the last time he would lose a match. His dad was a major support system for Tiger Woods, which is why it was so devastating for him when his father died. It was difficult for Tiger to get motivated enough to play for a while, but when he finally did, during a tournament, he told the media that the particular game that he was playing was for his dad. And he proceeded to win yet another time.
Tiger Woods may not realize it, but many people play golf and look up to him as a role model. They practice playing the game as they strive to be as good as Tiger Woods is. This probably makes Tiger Woods feel good, too, knowing that they are young people out there who look up to him. He knows what it’s like to be inspired by someone special, so if he can inspire others, then that’s probably okay with it.
Tiger Woods golfs with such grace and finesse, and many other golfers just don’t have the same grace. It’s like he was born to play golf, which he probably was, since he plays it so well. I’m sure that all Tiger Woods fans agree. Maybe Tiger Woods can teach his children to play golf just as well as he does, and perhaps one of all of them will decide to become professional golfers, just like their dad. This way, Tiger Woods can inspire his children, just like his dad did for him.
