“The Messi of golf” Tiger Woods daughter compares father to Barcelona star

Tiger Woods, a well-known face in the world of golf, has revealed that his 10-year-old daughter thinks that he is the Lionel Messi of golf.

Woods has suffered from injuries in recent years but has secured the hot spot of all-time great by winning 14 major titles.

And ahead of his return to action at the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods revealed that his children idolized the Barcelona and Argentina star.

After putting him that he was the Messi of golf, Woods revealed: “That’s what my daughter said.”

“I said, ‘isn’t it neat to be a living legend?’ and she said ‘yes, we live with one!’.

“I never thought my kids knew what I did with golf, they thought I was the YouTube golfer.

“They’ve never really seen me in action. Most of the stuff they’ve watched has been on highlight packages. They’ve never seen what I can do.”

The conversation stemmed from Tiger Woods’ recollection of a meeting between his son Charlie and members of the Barcelona squad in Miami earlier this year.

“That’s his idol (Messi),” Woods said. “He plays FIFA all the time and is always Messi.

“It’s pretty neat to see my kids in awe like that. I thought it was really neat to have them back in the locker room to meet (Luis) Suarez and a few other guys in the team.

“It was a really surreal moment to sit back and watch my kids really appreciate it.”
