Tiger Woods burst onto the scene as a 2-year-old wowing the world on the Mike Douglas show, and nearly four decades later he's still the talk of the pro golf world. He won a Junior World Golf Championship for ages 10 and under in 1984, added a U.S. Junior Am title in 1991 and grabbed the first of three U.S. Am championships in 1994. Oh, and then came his historic professional career. Check out everything Woods has down on the course, beginning way back when he could barely walk, with this ultimate timeline.
