Daughter Sam, right, and son Charlie, pictured left in 2009 with their mother Elin Nordegren, have become a bigger focus for Woods since his family split after his extra-marital affairs were revealed.
Sam was present at his last major success, the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. "She doesn't remember it," Woods, 39, told reporters at his 2015 pre-tournament press conference at Augusta. "There's no doubt I'm feeling older. Try chasing around a 6 and 7-year-old every day. The good thing is my soccer is getting better." Jeff Gross/Getty Images/file
