Tiger Woods is widely considered the greatest golfer of all time. Known for breaking records, he has dedicated his whole life to golf. However, this changed in 2007 when his firstborn, his daughter, came into his life. Being a girl’s dad, the golfer has learned a lot. And he shared his learnings with one of the popular actresses in Hollywood.

“I don’t like boys!” The 15-time major winner didn’t hesitate one bit. “She’s such like my… daddy’s little girl,” he added. “I love it.” 

Being a daughter’s mother herself, Jada Smith cracked up when Tiger said he doesn’t “like boys.” 

However, she was smiling when the golfer started to open up to her. “I have thing about I feel like every dude should have a daughter,” she further stated.
