He was born March 27, 1966, in Memphis. Tiger weighed only four pounds at birth, and his father said to his mother, “He is fighting like a tiger to live.” The name stuck, and he was forever known as Tiger. He was a standout athlete at Christian Brothers High School and Christian Brothers College in Memphis. Following college, he was the assistant golf professional at Jackson Country Club for four years. Tiger has been the head golf professional at Poplar Meadows Country Club in Union City for the past 18 years.
Tiger was the son of Carolyn and Leon Haag of Millington. He leaves behind his devoted wife of 22 years, Amy (Dodson) Haag, and his greatest joy and accomplishment, his son, Houston. He is also survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Lee and Julie Haag of Germantown, and a “plethora” of family members and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Lois and Carol Glass of Covington and Anna and Carl Haag of Vincennes, Ind.
