TIGER WOODS has won 15 majors over the course of his professional career.

Fans of the legendary golfer are wondering if any of his kids will follow in their dad’s footsteps.

How many kids does Tiger Woods have?

Woods has two children: his daughter, Sam, 15, and his son, Charlie Axel, 14. His daughter, Sam was born in June 2007 and his son, Charlie was born in February 2009.

The five-time Masters champion had both of his kids with Swedish model Elin Nordegren, to whom he was married for six years between 2004 and 2010.

After his Masters win in 2019, Woods doted on both of his children as he attempted to hold back tears.

“I was just trying to plod my way around all day then all of a sudden I had the lead,” he said.

“Coming up 18 I was just trying to make a five. When I tapped in I don’t know what I did, I know I screamed.

“To have my kids there, it’s come full circle. My dad was here in 1997 and now I’m the dad with two kids there.”

Do Tiger Woods’ children play golf?

Woods’ daughter, Sam, certainly isn’t as interested in the sport of golf as she is passionately into soccer.

“No, not really,” he told Golf.com back in 2018 when asked if Sam was into golf.

“[Sam and Charlie] are keen into soccer; if they want to play golf, that’s great. If they don’t, that’s fine, too.

“As long as they have a good time playing sports. I find that a lot of fun now, to be able to physically get out and pass the ball around with them.

“I get such a big kick out of watching them compete and play. It’s so much fun to see how happy and passionate they are about soccer.”

Charlie, however, has definitely gotten into the sport his father has turned into a craft.

“[Charlie’s] starting to get into it,” Woods told Golf Digest in 2020.

“He’s starting to understand how to play. He’s asking me the right questions.

“I’ve kept it competitive with his par, so it’s been just an absolute blast to go out there and just, you know, be with him. It reminds me so much of me and my dad growing up.”

Charlie made an appearance at the 2020 PNC Championship with Woods and impressively sunk an eagle.

That same year, Charlie won a nine-hole kids tournament, blowing the opposition away to win by five strokes.

In 2024, it was announced that Charlie was entered in a pre-qualifier for the 2024 Cognizant Classic.

He will compete in Lost Lake Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida, one of four pre-qualifying sites. 

The top 5 golfers and ties from Lost Lake will advance to a qualifier, where the top four will earn a spot in the Cognizant Classic.

What did Sam say at her father’s Hall of Fame induction?

On March 9, 2022, Woods had the privilege of having his daughter induct him into the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Woods shared the stage with Sam for an emotional speech.

“You’re a fighter. You’ve defied the odds every time – being the first black and Asian golfer to win a major, being able to win your fifth Masters after back surgeries, and being able to walk just a few months after your crash,” she said.

“Dad, I inducted you into the Dad Hall of Fame a long time ago, but today, I am so proud to present my dad, Tiger Woods, into the World Golf Hall of Fame.”
