TIGER Woods is one of sports most famous names.
So it goes without saying that the golfer, said to be worth over £600 million, can afford a luxurious lifestyle in Florida, where he resides.
The 45-year-old, who is recovering in his compound after a horror accident left him with serious injuries, has always favoured the 'Sunshine State' – first living in Windermere, then moving to the exclusive Jupiter Island.
There, Woods is a restaurant owner – running the well-respected sports bar Woods Jupiter.
He bought a plot of land, and built a home nearby for his mum Kultida to live in.
And he's a member of the most exclusive golf club in America in Medalist Village – that features a 18-hole course designed by Greg Norman and costs £100,000-per-year to join.
Before moving to Jupiter Island, Woods lived a two and half hour drive away in affluent Windermere.
He lived in a stunning £3.8million mansion (pictures supplied by Realtor.com) with his ex-wife Elin Nordegren until it was sold to Bubba Watson in 2013.
Famously, Tiger also crashed his Cadillac Escalade into a fire hydrant and a tree outside the home.
Just two days earlier it was alleged Woods was having an affair with New York nightclub hostess, Rachel Uchitel.
The house features seven bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms across 8,000 square-feet.
There are tons of amenities, including a game room and a cinema room with tiered seating.
It was located in the private gated community of Isleworth Golf and Country club, boasting incredible views of Lake Isleworth.
In 2010, after his divorce from Elin, Woods left Windermere for Jupiter Island and a £41million home built to specification.
Not only does it boast its own four-hole golf course, the home has a 100ft swimming pool, as well as an outdoor basketball area and tennis court.
It's so big there are two sections to the property, with one a 3,300-square-foot living quarters and the other a 6,400-square-foot multi-purpose building.
And Tiger has plenty to entertain himself with, including his very own oxygen therapy room, a private cinema, a state-of-the-art gym and a games room.
On living in Jupiter, Woods once said: “In Orlando, there’s a bunch of lakes, but it’s not the ocean.
"Jupiter is just a great area to live.”
WINE AND DINE
Around the corner from Tiger's lavish estate is his high-end restaurant The Woods Jupiter that provides a "legendary sports bar experience."
In the past, golfing pals Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas have all dined here.
On the menu you will find a full rack of ribs for £22, New Zealand rack of lamb for £30, hearty steaks from £21, as well as a variety of seafood options – with the pick being a pan-seared snapper costing £28.
The bar features a brilliant selection of bourbons, cognacs and ryes, and there's a cigar list for the most sophisticated of diners.
Woods launched the restaurant in 2015, and it reportedly cost him £6million.

Some four miles up the coast of Jupiter Island is Hobe Sound, where you will find Medalist Village – a community of more incredible homes, but more importantly Medalist Golf Club.
Tiger is a regular and enjoys practicing on the 18-hole course designed by Greg Norman and Pete Dye.
A full membership, that includes use of the spa, is said to cost around £100,000 per-year.
It's so popular among the golfing elite, it was reported by Palm Beach Post that over 20 PGA Tour and LPGA Tour players were members at the club.
Back in May, Medalist hosted the teams of Woods and Peyton Manning and Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in The Match: Champions for Charity, a scramble match-play competition during the COVID-19 pandemic.
KEEPS HIS FAMILY CLOSE
Forever the doting son, Tiger built mother Kutilda a 15,000 square-foot property that neighbours Jupiter Island.
According to RadarOnline, it cost £8million and is a shrine to Tiger's life in sport.
On the walls are various photos of Woods playing golf, as well as countless trophies.
Woods' initials are also blown into the stained glass above the front door, as well as in the marble tiles in the foyer.
And there's said to be a saltwater pool, and a water slide that ends in front of a Playboy Mansion-style grotto covered with sea shells.
