He was born in the year of the Tiger -- and China's Guan Tianlang will be hoping to mix it with a certain Mr Woods once again after rewriting the history books at Augusta.
While most teenagers take on Woods on their game consoles, China's Guan was busy making history Friday after becoming the youngest ever player to make the cut at a major championship.
The 14-year-old overcame a controversial slow play penalty to qualify for the weekend's action after carding a three-over 75 to leave him four-over for the tournament.
At 14 years and five months, Guan breaks the record held by Italy's Matteo Manassero, who made history at the British Open at the age of 16 years and two months.
Guan wasn't even born when Woods became the youngest ever player to win the Masters at the age of 21 back in 1997, but the two shared a practice round earlier this week with the teenager looking far from overawed.
He kept his cool on a difficult day where his participation in the final two rounds hung by a thread, after he was penalized on the 17th hole following a failure to heed the warnings given by referee John Paramor.
Guan is the first player to be punished for slow play in a major since France's Gregory Bourdy at the 2010 PGA Championship
Leader Jason Day, who finished on six-under, could have ended the youngster's hopes had he managed to gain one more shot.
But the Australian finished with a round of 68 to finish one clear of Fred Couples and fellow countryman Mark Leishman.
"I respect the decision they make," Guan told reporters following his round.
" I just changed my routine before the Masters, and the routine is good, but I think today is pretty hard because if you're timed only 40 seconds, it's pretty hard because you need to make the decision. The wind switched a lot. But that's for everybody."
Guan's problems began on the 13th where he was given a warning following his second shot, before he was hit with a one-shot penalty on the 17th.
The decision split players and fans alike with two-time winner Ben Crenshaw coming to the youngster's defense.
"This isn't going to end up pretty, I don't think," Crenshaw told reporters.
"I'm sick for him. He's 14 years old ... when you get the wind blowing out here, believe me, you're going to change your mind a lot.
"I'm sorry, I'm a player. It is not easy to get around this golf course the way it's set up for two days."
England's Lee Westwood, who finished three shots off the lead on three-under, also backed Guan.
"He's a youngster just learning the game and it's his first professional tournament, it seems a little bit harsh to me," Westwood told reporters.
"He probably learned to play slowly after watching us professional golfers on TV, so why should we be surprised?"
While there was a great deal of sympathy for the talented teenager, 1992 champion Couples says the decision was the correct one.
