TIGER WOODS is in the best place he has ever been ten years after a series of damning scandals, according to a close friend.
The 2019 Masters champion and 15-time major winner saw his career hit rock-bottom in 2009 when he was found to be cheating on then-wife Elin Nordegren.
He also famously crashed his car into a tree before numerous more women claimed to have had affairs with the American.
Woods and Nordegren, whom he has two children with, divorced in 2010 but seven years later he was back in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The 44-year-old was arrested for driving under the influence and the Telegraph report that he checked himself in for rehab for addiction to prescription painkillers.
After undergoing four back surgeries, he completed one of the sport’s greatest comebacks last year when he won the Masters for the fifth time.
It was also his first major win in 11-years as he won the hearts back of the golfing world.
And according to the People, he is now a completely changed man and it’s also down to his kids.
A source of Woods said: “He is a different man than he was before [the scandal].
“He’s grown up a lot. He’s not the narcissistic little kid he used to be; he now realizes that he’s not the center of the universe.
“He is just focused on being a dad, and he’s a damn good one.
“His kids are his proudest accomplishment and the most stable force in his life.

“He still feels bad about how [the scandal] affected Elin.
“He knows he hurt a good woman. But they are very friendly, he has moved on, and so has she. There was a lot of forgiveness.
“He has said that he’s thankful that he went through the things he went through. It helped him to grow up. And now, he is in the best place that he’s ever been.”
