When superstar golfer Tiger Woods became a first-time dad earlier this week, the news appeared on his website--absent any specifics about daughter Sam Alexis' height, weight, or time of arrival. It was par for the course for the notoriously private pro and his wife, Elin, who've been hounded by the press, says the AP.

Other players travel to tournaments with their kids or even let them caddy, but Woods is unlikely to let his daughter appear in public. Fatherhood shouldn't affect his game, though: Not even his beloved dad's death last year slowed his pace for long. "You can't practice all day," Jack Nicklaus said earlier this year. "Tiger will do just fine." (More golf stories.)
