Aired on 04/24/1997 | CC tv-pg
Earl Woods was certain his son would win the 1997 Masters Championship. And his prediction came true, kicking off a whirlwind of fame and press coverage. Tiger Woods and his father appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show later that year to discuss his meteoric rise to fame. Here, Earl tells Oprah that Tiger always possessed the raw talent and natural ability required to go the distance, and that by raising Tiger to be self-motivated, he and his wife took care of the other part of the equation: mindset. Later, Tiger opens up about adjusting to his newfound stardom—particularly the loss of privacy, which he says has been the hardest part.
