Tiger Woods is undeniably among the greatest golf players of all time. The energy that he brings to the course is phenomenal and has fans hooked till the very end. Apart from his remarkable skills, Woods also knows how to make headlines with fashion statements. However, his recent one at Hero World Challenge 2023 reminded everyone of another legendary player.
Notably, Woods started playing golf at the mere age of 2 after his father, Earl Woods, encouraged and introduced him to the sport. Ever since then, he has achieved remarkable success and even got featured on the Golf Digest when he was just five. Woods turned pro in 1996 and has been playing golf professionally for decades now.

Furthermore, in his recent game at Hero World Challenge, he made an entry with a calf sleeve. This not only made waves on the internet for the calf sleeve but also because of NBA star Michael Jordan. Notably, the calf sleeve trend was brought by MJ. Jordan used his knee sleeve and started wearing a few inches lower, thereby, creating the calf sleeve trend.
Interestingly, both of them are also a part of the athlete-billionaire group. While Jordan was the first one to make it to the billionaire status, Woods joined in almost a decade later. Additionally, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Woods and Jordan share a good relationship. The Bulls star’s interest in Golf is widely known and Woods is a legend himself in the sport.
Tiger Woods returned to the golf course after several months
Tiger Woods made a comeback to the golf course to play in the Hero World Challenge after a seven-month break. He withdrew from the Master’s back in April and underwent subtalar fusion surgery. Notably, Woods suffered multiple injuries after a single-car accident outside Los Angeles. He was driving faster than 80 mph in a 45 mph zone which resulted in the crash.
Furthermore, he required emergency surgery back then wherein a rod was inserted into his right leg. This was to stabilize multiple open fractures, along with major damage to his right ankle and foot. It is expected that his recent subtalar fusion surgery helped him to fully recover from the accident. Notably, he also lost most of his calf muscle and had scars – which he hid with a calf sleeve.
