People are born in the eras they're born in. It has nothing to do with "fortunate". It makes more sense to say Tiger Woods is fortunate to be born post-PGA-Caucasian-Clause. Actually, if you want to place pro athletes in general in different eras, all the past ones are unfortunate because the money is so much bigger now. Hogan's career earnings were something like $332,000.
