Tiger Woods has been included in Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2019 list, and his long-time friend and fellow golfer Justin Timberlake was enlisted to share his thoughts on the iconic athlete and his legacy.
"Last year, Tiger Woods and I spent time together, just the two of us, talking about being fathers," the 10-time GRAMMY winner wrote. "We discussed how we want our children to see us and how you balance your dedication to them with competitive drive. I told him about how my son, who just turned 4, has started to realize what I do. We bonded over the fact that we wanted our children to watch us at our best. Tiger told me that he hoped his children, who are 11 and 10, would one day see him win a major."
The 38-year-old crooner went on to highlight Woods' dedication to his profession, which includes recovering from multiple back surgeries in recent years, and to his children, which made his comeback at the Masters this month all the more special.
"Over the past few years, Tiger rehabbed rigorously from all the surgeries, and returned to the top of the game," Timberlake wrote. "While pundits doubted he'd ever win again, Tiger's commitment never wavered. The thing we don't always appreciate is the patience. Tiger spent countless hours in the gym, and on the golf course, with a singular goal in mind. All the work he did when people weren't watching allowed him to hug his children on the same hallowed ground he hugged his father 22 years ago, amid all the adulation, a Masters champion once again."
Following his Masters win, in a television interview, Woods described his kids' "infectious happiness," which helped him get through recent downturns in his life and career, via The New York Times.
"It's unreal for me to experience this,'' he said. "It was one of the hardest I've ever had to win just because of what's transpired the last couple of years."
"To have my kids here, it's come full circle," he later added. "My dad was here in '97, and now I'm the dad with two kids there."
