- Despite her father Tiger Wood's golfing legacy, Sam Woods has chosen soccer over golf.
- In her most successful season yet, Sam has scored four goals in 15 games, showcasing improvement from previous seasons.
Tiger Woods is one of the biggest names in golf. The legendary golfer has cemented his legacy in the sport with an illustrious career. The American golfer has two children with his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren. He has a boy named Charlie Woods and a daughter named Sam Alexis Woods.
It is natural for the kids of a legendary sports figure to follow their parents into the same sport. Charlie has done the same by following his dad’s steps into the sport of golf. Sam has chosen a different path for herself. She has ditched the golf course for a soccer field.
