Golfer Tiger Woods, 31, and his wife Elin became first time parents early Monday morning with the birth of daughter Sam Alexis.

He also adds that the couple will make photos of their daughter available shortly.

Tiger had just finished second in the U.S. Open on Sunday — babySam was not expected to arrive for another two and a half weeks.
