The Unreal Win Percentage of Tiger Woods That Puts Other Golfers to Shame
AUGUSTA, GA – APRIL 12: Tiger Woods of the United States watches his tee shot on the first hole during the final round of the 2015 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club on April 12, 2015, in Augusta, Georgia. (Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)
Tiger Woods is the greatest golfer of all time. He has 82 PGA Tour and 15 major championship wins in his career so far. Meanwhile, earlier people used to consider golf as an old man’s and boring sport. But Tiger, with his incredible golfing skills and talent, caught the attention of people and popularized this sport.

Soon after his debut in 1996, he became a global athlete and the face of this incredible sport. Moreover, his performance, especially from 2000 to 2010, was unfathomable. Hence, these 10 to 11 years were considered as Tiger’s era. He dominated almost every time he stepped onto the field. So let us have a look at an interesting stat of Tiger.

Tiger Woods’ wins percentage till 2021
Lou Stagner , a golf statistician, recently made a tweet showing the highest win percentage of golfers from 1983 to 2021 with a minimum of 100 events played. So Tiger Woods to date has an incredible 22.9 win percentage on the PGA Tour. He is miles ahead of other golfers, and there is absolutely no one even close to him.

Moreover, there is no other golfer who even has a 10-win percentage on the PGA Tour. Therefore, Tiger, with a 22.9 win percentage, shows the dominance he has had in his career with 82 PGA Tours and 15 major championship wins. Moreover, it also defines why he is considered to be the greatest golfer of all time.
Tiger's win percent is "pretty good"… 😀 🐐 pic.twitter.com/VIRF90rw9O — Lou Stagner (Golf Stat Pro) (@LouStagner) November 27, 2021
Meanwhile, the next best golfer on this list is the Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy. He has a winning percentage of around 9.4, which is the second-best. There are plenty of players closer to him, with Dustin Johnson at 8.4%, Justin Thomas at 7.9%, and Phil Mickelson at 7.0%.
Moreover, legendary players like Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and others aren’t part of this list as they played most of their golf before 1983. But given their overall records, they could have easily given a tough fight to Woods. But since the actual stats aren’t available, it’s not fair to compare these players with Tiger.

What Percentage Of PGA Players Never Win? [Surprising]
The PGA Tour is one of the toughest places to win in the world of professional golf. Those good enough to have a PGA Tour card are competing against the best golfers in the world.
As a result, getting a PGA Tour title under your belt is far from easy. Some players can have a very good career, without ever having a career win. Others can win 20 events and earn lifetime membership.
So how many golfers playing on the PGA Tour have never actually won a tour event? Let’s have a look.
What Percentage Of PGA Tour Players Never Win?
Table of Contents
About 90% of golfers who ever play on the PGA Tour never win a tournament . Although this number is difficult to determine, only about 10% of players will ever collect at least one victory on the PGA Tour.
Each year it gets harder to win on the PGA Tour, with better players coming out of college and the Korn Ferry Tour, as well as other top-tier tours from around the world.
The number of golfers that play on the PGA Tour can also vary each year, so makes the number increasingly difficult to figure out.
Some players that have played on the PGA Tour may have only played a handful of times in their careers, usually through a sponsors invite or a qualifying round. This, therefore, increases the number of players to never have won on the PGA Tour.
Ultimately, the percentage of golfers that have won on the PGA Tour changes each year.
During the 2021-22 season, 730 players competed on the PGA Tour, including team events such as the Zurich Classic but also majors such as the PGA Championship . Of these 730 players, around 30% have won at least once in their careers.
But this number also only considers PGA Tour wins. Many players on the list have won at least once on other major tours such as the DP World Tour.
Some of the best golfers have next won a tournament on the PGA Tour but have still ended high up on the all-time money list. Brett Quigley for example, has never achieved a tour title on the PGA Tour but has taken home over $11 million in earnings.
Who Has The Best Winning Percentage In PGA Tour History?
Tiger Woods holds the best win percentage in PGA Tour history at 22%, having won 82 times out of 373 events played. This means that over his career, Tiger has won a tournament every 5 starts.
Tiger Woods currently holds the highest number of victories on the PGA Tour alongside Sam Snead, with a total of 82 victories, including 15 major championships.
The next best winning percentage on the PGA Tour is currently Rory McIlroy at just under 10%. This stat just shows how incredible of a career Tiger Woods has had, when compared to the other great golfers that have played on the PGA Tour.
The greatest major champion of all time and possibly the greatest ever to play the game of golf, Jack Nicklaus, has a winning percentage of 12.5. In a career that spanned over 30 years, Nicklaus made 85% of cuts and came runner-up 58 times.
There’s no denying, winning on the PGA Tour is far from easy.
Even if you’re playing the last in the final round with a three-shot lead, getting the job done is one of the hardest things to achieve.
Having said that, I wouldn’t feel too sad if I had managed to pick up $11 million in earnings, despite never finishing on top of the leaderboard.
Do PGA players get paid if they don’t win?
Golfers on the PGA Tour will get paid, provide they make the cut after 2 rounds. If they make the cut, they’ll be paid based on how well they finish on the leaderboard. Some tournaments, such as The Masters, will pay golfers even if they miss the cut.
Who played the most PGA tournaments without a win?
Brett Quigley has played in the most PGA Tour events and never had a victory, having made 408 starts. However, he made the cut over 50% of the time and had 5 runner-up finishes.

Tiger Woods' PGA Tour winning percentage is still an absurd statistic
Dustin johnson has a great winning percentage, but it's no match for the best ever.
After Dustin Johnson won Bridgeston last week, I got curious. It was Johnson's 11th win in 194 PGA Tour events which seems like a solid winning percentage (and it is). But how does it rank against the other stars on the PGA Tour. Let's say those who have 10 wins or more.
Well, I'm glad you asked. Here is the winning percentage for every active PGA Tour player with 10 or more wins.
- Tiger Woods: 79 wins in 324 events -- 24.2 percent
- Phil Mickelson: 42 wins in 542 events -- 7.75 percent
- Vijay Singh: 34 wins in 584 events -- 5.82 percent
- Davis Love III: 21 wins in 733 events -- 2.86 percent
- Ernie Els: 19 wins in 420 events -- 4.52 percent
- Jim Furyk: 17 wins in 551 events -- 3.09 percent
- David Toms: 13 wins in 607 events -- 2.14 percent
- Adam Scott: 13 wins in 259 events -- 5.02 percent
- Zach Johnson: 12 wins in 330 events -- 3.64 percent
- Justin Leonard: 12 wins in 583 events -- 2.06 percent
- Steve Stricker: 12 wins in 459 events -- 2.61 percent
- Dustin Johnson: 11 wins in 194 events -- 5.67 percent
- Rory McIlroy: 11 wins in 111 events -- 9.91 percent
- Jason Day: 10 wins in 184 events -- 5.43 percent
So that is something. Tiger's numbers are just preposterous. If he played as much as Davis Love III, he would presumably have 175 career wins. Of course part of this is staying healthy, which Love has done and Tiger hasn't. Also, there is no way Tiger could have kept up the intensity with which he played for 700 events, which is part of what made him who he was.
Rory's numbers are pretty awesome as well. He's the only active player with 10 or more wins that is even close to 10 percent. He is also helped by the fact that he is in his prime and someone like, say, Phil Mickelson is on the decline (he's not winning at the same clip he used to win at).
We also underrate the career of Vijay Singh. If you re-rank these by percentage of tournaments won, it would go like this.
- Tiger Woods: 24.2 percent
- Rory McIlroy: 9.91 percent
- Phil Mickelson: 7.75 percent
- Vijay Singh: 5.82 percent
- Dustin Johnson: 5.67 percent
If you're wondering, Jordan Spieth is currently winning at a 8.16 percent clip which is right around McIlroy's.
Not all 10-win players are created equally though which is what I hoped to show with this chart. Justin Leonard looks like he's had a better career than Dustin Johnson on paper, but when you look a little closer, he has had not even close to the same career.

Which of the world’s leading golfers win the most and what are their strike rates?
- Dave Tindall
Viktor Hovland ousted Rory McIlroy to win the Dubai Desert Classic but where do the pair feature when looking at the win percentage since 2020 of the top 10 players in the world rankings?
Jack Nicklaus seemed to collect Majors at a prodigious rate. But although any true golf fan can quote the fact that he won 18, it's never discussed that he came up short in the other 146.
Tiger Woods made winning look commonplace in his pomp and his record-equalling tally of 82 PGA Tour wins seems astonishing.
1/ Viktor Hovland - strike rate 11.32%
Notes: Hovland was 100th in the world before gaining his first victory, the Puerto Rico Open, in February 2020. He's since added back-to-back wins at Mayakoba and December's limited-field Hero World Challenge (which carried just four fewer world ranking points than the 2021 Mayakoba) along with DP World Tour victories at the 2021 BMW International Open in Germany and, of course, Sunday's Dubai Desert Classic. Those wins have hoisted him to World No.3. The way Hovland finished in Dubai (birdie-eagle-birdie before coming through a play-off) shows that winning has now become an ingrained habit. In a tight finish, he's the man with the killer instinct.

2/ Dustin Johnson - strike rate 10.25%
Notes: True, Johnson didn't lift a trophy last year but, over the study period, he's still been winning at a better rate than all but one of his top-10 rivals. His three victories in 2020 were the Travelers Championship, The Northern Trust and The Masters while in 2021 he added the DP World Tour's Saudi Invitational. Since the start of 2016, DJ has won 16 times so, in a sport where the elusive 'W' can be hard to find, he's been one of the very best at getting his nose in front.
3/ Collin Morikawa - strike rate 10%
Notes: Morikawa is third on the list although if this was being measured in quality not quantity, he'd surely be top. Since the start of 2020, the American has won two Majors (2020 PGA Championship and 2021 Open Championship), a WGC (2020 Workday Championship), the 2021 DP World Tour Championship in Dubai and the 2021 Workday Charity Open at Muirfield Village. That's quite the haul.
4/ Patrick Cantlay - strike rate 8.33%
Notes: Cantlay got hot at the end of the 2021 season when winning the BMW Championship and then also finishing in front at the Tour Championship to land the FedEx Cup jackpot. However, that was a staggered start and he was only tied fourth in 72-hole scoring, something noted on the Official World Golf ranking website, so it's a slight grey area. Three wins from 36 starts is certainly decent and his strike-rate is better than some as he plays less often. Give Cantlay the Tour Championship win and he rises to 11.11% which would put him second behind Hovland.
What a way to finish the season 🏆 Thank you all for the support, going to try to soak it all in now! pic.twitter.com/PF8e0gMAAa — Patrick Cantlay (@patrick_cantlay) September 6, 2021
5/ Bryson DeChambeau - strike rate 7.14%
Notes: Some believed DeChambeau would start to dominate golf after he pumped up and became the game's biggest hitter. But that simply hasn't happened. Full credit for his wins in the 2020 US Open and 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational but his victory in the low-key Rocket Mortgage Classic in 2020 is the only other trophy he's collected since the start of the study period.
6/ Jon Rahm - strike rate 6.98%
Notes: Slightly curiously, Rahm has risen to World No.1 despite his win-rate dropping. It's been below 7% since the start of 2020, suggesting he's not a good bet when going off at prices such as 15/2. Those victories were the Memorial Tournament and the BMW Championship in 2020 and the US Open in 2021. To be fair, had he not been forced to withdraw from the 2021 Memorial due to Covid when six clear after 54 holes, that win rate could be 9.3. Rahm also shot the joint-lowest 72 holes in the 2021 Tour Championship but the staggered start meant he only finished runner-up.
View this post on Instagram A post shared by Jon Rahm Rodriguez (@jonrahm)
7/ Justin Thomas - strike rate 6.52%
Notes: JT gives the impression that he's a regular winner but that reputation was forged a few years ago when he won five times in 2017, including the PGA Championship. But in 46 starts since the beginning of this decade he's added just three more wins: the Sentry TOC in January 2020, the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational later that year and the 2021 PLAYERS Championship. Another case of quality over quantity.
8/ Hideki Matsuyama - strike rate 6.0%
Notes: It's just three wins in 50 starts since the start of 2020 for Matsuyama. But if we were measuring over a shorter time span, he's won two of his last three tournaments (Zozo Championship and Sony Open) and three in 18 if starting from his breakthrough victory in the 2021 Masters. For some, a Major victory is the end game; for others, such as Matsuyama, it looks as if it could be the springboard for him becoming a regular winner.
Hideki has his Green Jacket. #themasters pic.twitter.com/lnFkgUsIpP — The Masters (@TheMasters) April 12, 2021
9/ Rory McIlroy - strike rate 4.65%
Notes: Rory won five times in 2012 and four times in each of 2014, 2015 and 2019. But the victories have started to dry up and his late collapse in the Dubai Desert Classic confirmed a feeling that he finds it much, much harder to get over the winning line these days and the scar tissue of defeat is affecting him. McIlroy has just two wins from the start of 2020, the Wells Fargo Championship and CJ Cup (both in 2021). And yet the bookies still often chalk him up as the man to beat.
10/ Xander Schauffele - strike rate 2.27%
Where other big names rank and others who win often.

Jon Rahm’s tournament success rate second only to Tiger Woods
The basque golfer, who has won three of the last five tournaments he has played, has an 11% career win rate, behind the american great but ahead of world number one rory mcilroy.
The New Year started with a goal for Jon Rahm , who was named a club ambassador by his boyhood soccer team Athletic Bilbao to mark the Basque side’s 125th anniversary. The golfer, currently ranked number four in the world, swiftly added another title to that honor at the Sentry Tournament of Champions on January 8, where he clawed back a six-shot final round deficit on Collin Morikawa in an epic turnaround. That victory was Rahm’s third in his last five tournaments: he also won the Spanish Open and the DP World Tour, while finishing fourth at the CJ Cup and eighth at the Hero World Challenge.
Rahm’s recent run provides a statistic that underlines his consistency at the elite level . The Basque has played 154 ranking tournaments during his career and has won 17 of them, a success rate of 11%, which in golf is a remarkable standard. In fact, only Tiger Woods has a better record, the American great having won 22% of the ranking tournaments he has played (93 wins from 421). The current world number one, Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy, has an 8.3% success rate (31 from 372). The same three players occupy the same positions in terms of placing inside the top three, top five and top 10 at the tournaments they have competed in.
“I always have a lot of confidence in myself,” Rahm told EL PAÍS on Wednesday during an interview with several media outlets organized by the PGA Tour ahead of the American Express Gold Tournament at the La Quinta Country Club in California. “I would love to see what percentage Tiger had at my age . During his career he even reached 33%, which is just incredible.” By the time Woods was 28 (he is now 47), he had played in 161 tournaments, winning 44 of them for a superlative 27.3% success rate.
After a spectacular 2021 during which Rahm won his first major at the US Open, the Basque failed to finish in the top 10 of any of last year’s Grand Slams: 27th at the Masters, 48th at the PGA, 12th at the US Open and 34th at the Open Championship. This season, Rahm is focused on adding to his Maiden major and the Ryder Cup. “I don’t care which major comes next. I have a certain internal conflict on the subject. I would love to be the fourth Spaniard to win the Masters [after Seve Ballesteros, José María Olazábal and Sergio García], but I would also love to be the first to win the PGA. I want to give myself possibilities on a Sunday, but Rafa Nadal has spoiled us with his 22 Grand Slams. That doesn’t happen in golf.”
Speaking about the Ryder Cup, Rahm isn’t happy that the ongoing conflict between the PGA and the breakaway Saudi Arabian LIV league excludes Garcia, one of the players who has made the jump to LIV Golf , from next September’s tournament in Rome. “The Ryder Cup is not the PGA Tour versus LIV, it’s Europe versus the United States, and I would like each team to have the best players. I would love to play with Sergio again but it’s out of my hands. It doesn’t look good though,” Rahm said.
Despite being ranked behind only McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler and Cameron Smith, Rahm has not had much exposure on US sports channels. “It’s because I’m not American,” he says. “There’s a certain list - Rory, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth - who are kind of spoiled by the tour, and in the last four or five years the only one who’s played like me has been Rory. At the Sentry, I wasn’t on the television until the 12th or 13th hole... My job is to win, and if I do that, they won’t have any choice but to put me on the television.”
