Tiger Woods was born in Cypress, California, in 1975. Tiger Woods was raised to be a champion. Brought up by a father who put a golf club in his hands before he could walk. For an entire generation of kids, Tiger was a hero and viewed in the same light as the best athlete in the world. Tiger Woods studied at Stanford University, and won a number of amateur U.S. golf titles. By the summer of 1996 he shot to fame after winning the Master’s at Augusta, with a record score of 270 and at the age of twenty-one he was the youngest player to earn the title. He became among the top best golf players of all time since turning pro at the age of twenty. His 14 major tournament championships are second only to Jack Nicklaus who has a total of 18, a record he once seemed destined to exceed. Tiger Woods is one of the greatest golfers to have ever played the game. His tournament record worldwide is greater than anyone else’s. He has been at the top of the game for twenty years now; he is probably the most formidable force in the modern age of golf. He is one of a kind, my idol.
Baseball was in my blood. Some of my earliest memories include batting cages with my Dad, sliding into home plate and throwing my first curve ball. By eight years old, I was playing ball year-round on travel teams and loving every minute of it. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that this was my sport, and I would play it in high school and possibly beyond. But, during the summer of 2010, the unthinkable happened. Picking up a golf club for the first time, I fell in love with a new game. I played every chance I got that summer. Begging my parents for clubs and lessons, my passion grew and most of the following summer was spent on the golf course, not the baseball field.

And after this match I understand what is golf match and I have to use a mentality, just think if my score better than last time then I win.

It was in fourth grade when I started playing golf frequently. I would always run off into my backyard, drop my ball in the giant divot I usually play from, and start hitting the ball towards my golf flag. It was just a hobby at the time. I wasn’t super serious about trying to go to tournaments, nor was I trying to become like Tiger Woods. I just wanted to play the game. As fifth grade came along, I learned that there was a high school golf team. I never really set goals in my life at the time, but it had finally came to the point where I set one: to make the golf team when I enter high school.
Many people would consider golf to be a game rather than a sport. Golfers do not have to be great athletes or in terrific physical condition. Golf is accessible to most people and it does not require a team (most times), so it seems to be a game. Golf does require skill, practice, and athleticism, the same as other sports. Pro golfers practice often, are in great physical condition and make a living from golfing. Golf draws many spectators per year. Golf meets the definition of a sport because it takes skill and practice to be a great golfer, and meets the large majority of definitions.

Today I am going to talk to you about legendary golfers. There are many amazing golfers that have played throughout the years, like Ben Hogan, Tiger Woods, Seve Ballesteros, Bubba Watson, Lee Trevino, Gary Player, and Sam Snead. The three golfers I chose though are Bobby Jones, Arnold Palmer, and Jack Nicklaus. The three ways I picked the golfers to be legendary were (1) The golfer had to be retired from the PGA Tour and the Senior Tour, (2) the golfer had to have a memorable achievement while they were still in their career, and (3) the golfer had to have won many majors and tournaments.
I was on the Girl’s Golf team for two years, and managed the Boy’s team for one. I love to play, and being in a small team was a lot of fun.

Well my good times came to end quickly.

I would tell them that the first tee taught me the 9 important core values I use when I’m playing golf and outside of golf. The 9 important core clues were honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy, and judgment. Being a part of the first tee as a girl is so amazing, I was in girl’s golf ever since I was 7 or 8 up until I was 13 years old until I joined into eagle classes. In the girls golf classes I learned to gain more confidence, I met amazing coaches, leaders, and friends, and I learned to use perseverance
