Tiger Woods

By the end of the 2007 PGA Tour season, Tiger Woods had won 61 official PGA Tour events, an additional 21 individual professional titles, owns two team titles in the two-man WGC-World Cup, and won the inaugural FedEx Cup playoffs.
Woods is one of five players (along with Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player) to have won all four professional major championships in his career, known as the “Career Grand Slam”, and was the youngest of these five to do so.
Tiger Woods is second on the list of major championship winners, with 13 majors to his name, and is swiftly closing in on Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major titles. Woods has won the British Open three times, in 2000, 2005 and 2006 and is the favourite to hoist the Claret Jug in 2008.
Woods’ first major title came in 1997, when he won the Masters at just 22 years of age. He won the Masters three more times, in 2001, 2002 and 2005.
He has won the PGA Championship four times, in 1999, 2000, 2006 and 2007, and has two US Open titles to his name, winning the tournament in 2000 and 2002.
Woods boasts the lowest career scoring average and highest career earnings of any player in the history of the PGA Tour. He has been the PGA Player of the Year a record nine times, is currently tied with Jack Nicklaus as eight-time PGA Tour Money Leader, and has spent almost nine of his 12 years as a professional golfer as world number one in the Official World Golf Rankings.
Woods’ in at the 2005 British Open made him only the second golfer (after Nicklaus) to have won all four majors more than once. Woods holds at least a share of the scoring record in relation to par in all four majors, and also holds the margin of victory record in two majors, the Masters and the US Open.
At the 2003 Tour Championship, Tiger Woods set the all-time record for most consecutive cuts, starting in 1998, with 114 (passing Byron Nelson’s previous record of 113) and extended this mark to 142.
