At one point, Tiger is asked about whether or not he thinks about his legacy, and his answer is not what you would expect. He tries to use Michael Jordan’s legacy as an example of how he wants to be remembered, which is to say he wants people to remember what he created rather than remember him as an athlete.
“The greatest thing that could happen is to not be remembered,” he says. “What I mean by that is, the kids right now, they don’t know that Michael Jordan played. They see a Jumpman [logo] and they think, ’That’s so cool.’ I’m talking young kids, really young kids, single digits in age, they have no idea who Michael Jordan was, but the Jumpman logo is cool. Now, for me, they don’t understand who that is. My learning center, kids go through it and they don’t know who I am. They don’t know what I’ve done. But it’s a safe haven for them to learn and grow.”
