American tennis star Serena Williams’ husband, Alexis Ohanian, is one of the most vibrant personalities on social media. The businessman often engages in activities related to his investments and loves having fun. He is one of the principal investors of the Angel City Football Club.

Apart from handling the business aspects, the Reddit co-founder also supports the team as its fan. Recently, he took his daughter Olympia to cheer for the team. A few years ago, the representation of women in football was significantly low. This gave a reason for Ohanian to invest in a football league team for women. Ohanian also believes there’s similar growth potential in women’s golf. He took to Twitter to announce the same.

Olympia can be the next female Tiger Woods

Ohanian expressed his wish to see women’s golf grow. He said it is a massively undervalued sport. Further, the Reddit cofounder predicted the future female Tiger Woods. Here’s what he tweeted.

“3 yrs ago I tweeted like this + ended up starting @weareangelcity so here goes: I think Women’s Professional Golf is the next massively undervalued sport in the USA/World. Only a matter of time before they have a @TigerWoods-esque star (Olympia?).”

Further, he spoke about the recent growth of women’s golf.

“The sport saw record growth during the pandemic, especially with younger players, great social media presence, and lots of face-time on camera to build relationships with fans during matches. This is not as obvious as women’s football, but I really hope to see it thrive,” he said.

Ohanian also spoke about Olympia’s interest in golf.

Olympia also asks to play “Putt-Putt” in every city we visit, so I’ll be paying more + more attention to the @LPGA tour,” he added.
