Sam Alexis Woods is a popular celebrity kid who has been in the spotlight as the daughter of golf icon Tiger Woods. Sam’s father started making quite a name for himself by the age of 21 winning the 1997 Masters by a record 12 strokes. Woods is now regarded as one of the greatest golfers of all time, holding numerous golf records to his name.
Besides, Tiger is also a doting dad of two kids. He is now co-parenting his two children with his ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
But, being the daughter of such a renowned father, is Sam also following in her father’s golfing footsteps or does the teen girl have other plans? Let’s find out more about Tiger Woods’ daughter’s life including her affluent childhood, siblings, parents’ failed marriage, and more.

He also appeared in a junior golf event in South Florida, where his dad was seen caddying for him. Although the celebrity kid didn’t end up winning, his impressive swing and advanced prowess at such an early age gained him a lot of positive comments on social media.
