"In winning the 2000 British Open, Woods became the youngest to
complete the career Grand Slam of professional major championships and
only the fifth ever to do so, following Ben Hogan, Gene Sarazen, Gary
Player and Jack Nicklaus. Tiger also was the youngest Masters champion
ever, at the age of 21 years, three months and 14 days, and was the
first major championship winner of African or Asian heritage.
Woods holds or shares the record for the low score in relation to par
in each of the four major championships. His records are 270 (18-under
par) in the 1997 Masters, 269 (19-under par) in the 2000 Open
Championship, and he shares the record of 270 (18-under par) with Bob
May in the 2000 PGA Championship, which Tiger won by one stroke in a
three-hole playoff. He held the U.S. Open records of 272 and 12-under
par (set in 2000) until 2011.
The U.S. Open and Masters victories came by record margins, 15
strokes and 12 strokes, respectively, and the U.S. Open triumph swept
aside the 13-stroke major championship standard which had stood for 138
years, established by Old Tom Morris in the 1862 British Open. The
record margin for the U.S. Open had been 11 strokes by Willie Smith in
1899. In The Masters, Woods broke the record margin of nine strokes set
by Nicklaus in 1965. Tiger won the Open Championship by eight strokes,
the largest margin since J. H. Taylor in 1913.
He is the career victories leader among active players on the PGA
Tour and is the career money list leader. He is third in PGA Tour career
victories, trailing only Sam Snead (82) and Jack Nicklaus (73).
Tiger increased his record total on the PGA Tour career money list to
$94,817,542 through 2011, and had won $115,618,045 worldwide.
In addition to his playing exploits, Woods is busy off the course, too.
Woods launched his only official website in 1997, making him one of
the first professional athletes to have his own personal site. It has
been online since, providing fans with a home on the web for all things
Tiger including: his personal blog, live scoring, video highlights and
breaking news and announcements. TigerWoods.com is the medium for Tiger
to communicate with his fans around the globe."
@"The thread is named Tiger Vs Faldo and You don't mention Faldo! "
In your stalking of Bill in this thread alone, how many times have you NOT mentioned Faldo ??
PAUL & BILL,
EYE need some clarification . . .
#1. Faldo ?
#2. What ?
#3. Does TIGER WOODS have > (14) majors and (72) PGA WINS
( 623 ) WEEKS @ Number One and Most career earnings in PGA Tour history??
72 MAJORS and 14 PGA WINS; 623 MONTHS @ Number One, and
Most career earnings of any player in the PGA and European Tour?
Yea...he has a professional insight to winning and being a great golfer...my only beat with Faldo is his over jealous tone...you don't hear that from Jack or Arnie do you....I guess that comes from being near the top vs. being toward the middle.
