Tiger Woods has been a phenomenon since he came toddling out on the Mike Douglas show at two years old. Because he was pegged for greatness at such an early age, now, nearly 40 years later, there are so many incredible old clips of Tiger sitting around online.

“Every time I go to a major country club I can always feel it. Always sense it. People always staring at me. ‘What are you doing here? You shouldn’t be here.’ When I go to Texas or Florida you always feel it. They say ‘What are you doing here? You’re not supposed to be here.’ And that’s probably because that’s where all the slavery was.”
