In his more than two-and-a-half decades of playing golf, the American has broken and created numerous records. He jointly holds the most PGA Tour win records and stands in the second position in terms of most men's major championships won in golf history.

Last year, an aerial photo of Woods' house went viral, showing three to four greens under construction. The American superstar has also designed a Jupiter Island practice facility. Woods had always dreamt of creating his own course. The facility is spread across 3.5 acres.
Woods’ at-home golf course is constructed while keeping in mind tournament-conditioned turf and bunkering. The turf variety in the PGA TOUR has also been taken care of.
