Tiger Woods talks about money
Tiger Woods had money as his main motivation in the early stages of his career, but it is clear that money does not drive him now, and that his motive is both success and love of golf. Woods had many opportunities to take the money, which he used in the best way.
"I believe in major championships. I believe in big events, comparisons to historical figures of the past," Woods said before the PGA Tour, as quoted by cbcsports. Of course, in every sport you have opportunities that you have to seize or someone else will do it for you.
Tiger Woods took advantage of such chances he had, and he became one of the greatest in this sport, we can freely say the greatest. "There's plenty of money out here. The Tour is growing. But it's just like any other sport.
It's like tennis. You have to go out there and earn it. You've got to go out there and play for it. We have the opportunity to go ahead and do it. It's just not guaranteed up front." "You guys [the media] all know, I'm not going to be playing a lot of tournaments going forward," Woods said .
"They're going to be the biggest tournaments. I want to be able to play the major championships, I've always loved playing them.
