It’s inevitable. Tiger Woods will eventually have a major motion picture of his life. It may not be now, it may not be soon, but it is going to happen. How could it not? He’s the first golfer to ever become a household name even among those outside of his world, the first minority golf superstar and at one point, the world’s no. 1 and its highest-earning athlete. Then, of course, there are the seamy personal details that rose to the surface and superseded the accolades. His infidelity, divorce and some very public breakdowns have severely impacted his impeccable game. It goes without saying that it makes for a very good story. I mean, can you imagine a biopic of Jordan or Rory being more interesting? We couldn’t either. Tiger’s raw talent, personal demons and downfall put him up there with the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson and other tragic public figures whose lives became just as legendary as their careers. So we’ve decided to preemptively cast some actors we think have the chops to do the life of golf’s most storied, complex personality justice.

We’d love to hear who your choices are, especially if you can find someone who might play Kultida Woods. We haven’t a damn clue.
