We all have our idols growing up, and the same is the case with Tiger Woods. While growing up, Tiger had his favorite golf professional, and coincidently, he is the favorite player of his mother as well. Moreover, Kultida Woods once revealed who is her favorite golf professional. He might be your favorite player as well.
Eldrick Woods could not become probably the best professional without the help of his mother. Kultida has always supported Tiger throughout his career and was also recently seen at the Tiger’s induction ceremony in the World Golf Hall of Fame. However, as it is Women’s history month, let’s take a trip down memory lane and relive the moment when Kultida revealed her favorite professional.
Moreover, there is a striking similarity between her favorite professional and Tigers’ favorite professional. Both of them seem to have a common liking when it comes to idolizing a golf player.
Kultida make the surprising revelation back in 2009. She said, “I enjoy the things that are old more than the new. You know, the test of time. In Thailand, you always respect the elders and history, which is what I taught my son.”
She added, “I know he liked Byron Nelson very much; he was my favorite of all the golfers I meet. Just the way he looked at me and shook my hand. I hardly talk to him. But I like him.” It is so amazing to see that both Tiger and Kultida share the same interest and also the values that she has taught Woods.
