Woods may have been the runner-up for the 2007 U.S. Open. 

However, that doesn’t mean he didn’t win that week. 

It was because he welcomed his first child with Elin Nordegren on June 18, 2007 (just a few hours after the US Open). 

Their daughter is called Sam Alexis Nordegren Woods.

But if you’re curious…

…Charlie’s name is a tribute to Charlie Sifford (a World Golf Hall of Fame member), while Tiger’s other nickname inspired Sam’s name. 

According to the golfer, his father would call him Sam growing up instead of his own name.
