20 Incredible Tiger Woods Records

Arguably the greatest golfer of all time has been setting the standard for more than 20 years

Tiger Woods, arguably the greatest golfer of all time, holds countless records

Tiger Woods is the greatest golfer of his generation, and arguably the greatest of all time. After an outstanding junior, college and amateur career, he burst onto the scene after turning professional in 1996, aged 20, becoming World No.1 before the end of the following year. While injury has slowed him down and limited how many events a year Woods can play, he’s still a massive draw and holder of an almost endless list of records. Here are 20 of the most impressive:

1. PGA Tour Money List

No player in history has won more money than Tiger on the PGA Tour, and he is the only man with over $100million in earnings. He has won just under $121million in career prize money, more than $25million clear of his closest rival, Phil Mickelson .

2. World No.1

Tiger holds the record for most weeks as world number one at 683, as well as most consecutive weeks, 281. That means he has been ranked the best golfer in the world for over 12 years in total, and spent the whole year as World No.1 eight times - 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.

3. Triple Winner

Woods is the only player to win the US Junior, US Amateur and US Open - he’s done so three times each.

4. PGA Tour Wins

No-one has won more PGA Tour events than Tiger’s 82, though Sam Snead did win the same amount.

5. Consecutive Cuts

Between 1998 and 2005, Woods made the cut in 142 consecutive events, breaking the previous PGA Tour record of 113, previously held by Byron Nelson.

6. Keeping It Low

The record for successive rounds of 68 or better on the PGA Tour is 14, set by Tiger in 2007-08.

7. Youngest Grand Slam Winner

Tiger became the youngest player to win a career Grand Slam of The Masters, the PGA Championship, the US Open and the Open Championship when he won the 2000 Open aged just 24. Woods joined Gene Sarazan, Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus in completing the career Grand Slam.

Tiger Woods completed the Grand Slam by winning the 2000 Open

8. Quicker Than Jack

He was also the quickest to the Grand Slam, winning his in his 93rd start, compared to Nicklaus’ 125. He and Nicklaus are the only players to win all four events at least three times.

9. Tiger Slam

Tiger is the only player to win four men’s Majors in a row. He won the 2000 US Open, Open and PGA Championship before winning the 2001 Masters in what became known as ‘The Tiger Slam’.

10. Major Winning Margins

Woods is the only player to win all four Majors by at least five strokes.

11. Young Master

Tiger became the youngest Masters winner in 1997 at the age of 21 years, 104 days but is only the second oldest winner behind Nicklaus, having won his most recent title in 2019 aged 43. If he wins another Green Jacket, he will hold both records.

12. Record Rounds Of Par Or Better

The PGA Tour record for most consecutive rounds at par or better is 52, held of course by Tiger. The 13-tournament stretch ran from the third round of the 2000 Byron Nelson Classic through the first round of the 2001 Phoenix Open.Pars 

13. Season Scoring Average

Tiger’s scoring average of 68.17 in 2000 was the lowest in PGA Tour history, beating the 68.33 average by Byron Nelson in 1945.

14. Three Gr-eight Seasons

By winning the 2006 WGC-American Express Championship, Tiger became the first player in PGA Tour history to win at least eight times in three different seasons.

15. Masters Margin

Tiger holds the record for the largest margin of victory at The Masters. In 1997 he won the Green Jacket by 12 strokes.

16. Walking The US Open

He also holds the record for the largest margin of victory at the US Open. He won the 2000 event by 15 strokes, a record for the 72-hole format.

17. Easy Open

The record for the largest winning margin at the Open (since 1900) is also held by Tiger. Again in 2000, Woods won the Claret Jug by a record: 8 strokes.

18. Double Defence

Woods is the only player to successfully defend the PGA Championship twice. He won back-to-back titles in 1999/2000 and 2006/2007.

19. Matchplay Hammerings

Tiger holds the record for most World Matchplay tournament wins with three (2003, 2004, 2008) and is the only player to successfully defend it. He also holds the record for the biggest win in the final, 8&7 against Stewart Cink in 2008 (36 holes) and the biggest win in any match, 9&8 against Stephen Ames in the 2006 first round (18 holes). It’s not possible to win an 18-hole matchplay game any quicker, though technically a 10&8 win would be better!

20. Player Of The Year

Woods has been named the PGA Player of the Year a record 11 times, PGA Tour Player of the Year a record 11 times and PGA Tour Money Leader a record 10 times. He has won both the Vardon Trophy (awarded by the PGA of America to the PGA Tour's leader in scoring average) and the Byron Nelson Award (the PGA Tour’s award for the lowest adjusted scoring average for the year) a record nine times each.

Jeff graduated from Leeds University in Business Studies and Media in 1996 and did a post grad in journalism at Sheffield College in 1997. His first jobs were on Slam Dunk (basketball) and Football Monthly magazines, and he's worked for the Sunday Times, Press Association and ESPN. He has faced golfing greats Sam Torrance and Sergio Garcia, but on the poker felt rather than the golf course. Jeff's favourite course played is Sandy Lane in Barbados, which went far better than when he played Matfen Hall in Northumberland, where he crashed the buggy on the way to the 1st tee!

  • Author: Bob Harig and Gabrielle Herzig

Many like to say that Woods doesn’t just move the needle, he is the needle.

In Tiger’s 47 years he has accomplished the unthinkable. A lifelong champion, Woods has rewritten the record books, rebounded from hurdles and redefined golf’s history. The 15-time major champion’s influence on the game is boundless.

In honor of his 47th birthday on Dec. 30, we’ve compiled a list of 47 of the most astonishing facts and statistics from Woods’s career.

47 Facts and Statistics on Woods’s 47th

1. Woods’s 82 career PGA Tour victories are tied with Sam Snead for the most in Tour history. His first came at the 1996 Las Vegas Invitational, his last at the 2019 Zozo Championship.

2. Tiger’s 15 major championships are three behind Jack Nicklaus and four ahead of Walter Hagen—the only players to reach double digits in men’s majors. His first came at the 1997 Masters , his last at the 2019 Masters.

3. Woods joined Ben Hogan as the only players in the modern era to win three major championships in the same year when he won the U.S. Open , British Open and PGA Championship in 2000. Hogan won the Masters, U.S. Open and British in 1953.

4. Woods’s victory at the 2001 Masters gave him four straight major titles, a feat never accomplished in the modern game. Only Bobby Jones in 1930—then counting amateur titles—won four in a row. For good measure, Woods also added the so-called “fifth major" in 2000, capturing the Players Championship two weeks prior to his Masters victory.

5. Woods holds the all-time record for consecutive cuts made on the PGA Tour at 142, a streak that began in 1998. He passed Byron Nelson’s record of 113 at the 2003 Tour Championship and didn’t miss a cut until the 2005 Byron Nelson Championship.

6. Woods is the only golfer to win the U.S. Amateur three times in a row, doing so in 1994-95-96.

7. Tiger has three career holes-in-one, all of them coming prior to 2000. Woods made an ace in his first event as a pro at the 1996 Greater Milwaukee Open. He also made one in 1997 at the Phoenix Open and again in 1998 at the International.

8. Woods is 14-1 when holding at least a share of the 54-hole lead in a major championship, the only time he failed to convert coming at the 2009 PGA Championship, where he held a two-shot advantage over Y.E. Yang.

9. The only time Woods won a major without a share of the final-round lead came at the 2019 Masters, where he overcame Francesco Molinari.

10. Woods’s 2000 scoring average of 67.79 (adjusted) and 68.17 (non-adjusted) is the lowest in PGA Tour history.

11. Woods is one of only five players to complete the career Grand Slam, winning the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship in his career. He accomplished the feat when he won the 2000 British Open at St. Andrews. The others to do so are Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus.

12. Woods has won the Vardon Trophy for low scoring average nine times, a PGA Tour record.

13. Woods has been voted PGA Tour player of the year 11 times, a PGA Tour record.

14. Woods has also won the PGA of America’s player of the year award (via a points system) a record 11 times.

15. Woods has a 54-4 record when holding at least a share of the 54-hole lead in a tournament.

16. Woods has a 42-2 record when holding the outright lead through 54 holes in a tournament.

17. Woods has successfully defended a title 24 times on the PGA Tour. That number alone ties him with Gary Player and Macdonald Smith for 25th all-time on the PGA Tour victory list.

18. Woods has finished second 31 times and third 19 times.

20. Woods held the top spot for 280 consecutive weeks from June 13, 2005, through Oct. 25, 2010.

21. Woods’s win at the 2008 U.S. Open gave him a win in all four major championships at least three times, joining Jack Nicklaus as the only players to do so.

22. Woods has had three full-time caddies as a pro: Mike "Fluff" Cowan, 1997-99; Steve Williams, 1999-2011; Joe LaCava, 2011-present.

23. Woods has had four full-time coaches as a pro: Butch Harmon (who began with him as an amateur in 1993), 1997-2002; Hank Haney, 2004-2010; Sean Foley, 2010-14; Chris Como, 2014-17.

24. Woods’s victory at the 2007 Buick Invitational gave him seven consecutive PGA Tour victories in events he played, the second-longest streak to Byron Nelson’s 11 in 1945.

25. Woods has won seven majors by three shots or more (more than any player).

26. Before Tiger, the last player to reach a total of seven major championships was Tom Watson in 1982.

27. Each time Jack Nicklaus concluded his career in a major championship, Woods won it: the 2000 U.S. Open and PGA; the 2005 (Masters and British Open).

28. Woods won his 100th (2000 WGC Invitational), 200th (2006 Buick Invitational) and 300th (2013 Players Championship) official starts on the PGA Tour.

29. Woods has 41 official DP World Tour (formerly European Tour) victories in his career and never played the circuit full-time. Seve Ballesteros is the all-time leader with 50, followed by Bernhard Langer with 42. Woods is 10 ahead of Colin Montgomerie at 31. Rory McIlroy has 14.

30. Woods is the only player under the age of 50 with 25 PGA Tour victories or more. Dustin Johnson—who now plays with LIV Golf—has 24. Woods won his 25th PGA Tour title at the 2001 Arnold Palmer Invitational.

31. Woods has used his trusty Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter for the bulk of his career, winning 14 of his 15 major titles with it. During his first major win, the 1997 Masters, he used a different Scotty Cameron model.

32. Tiger has seen fellow competitors born from 1922 (Doug Ford, 1997 Masters) to 1999 (Devon Bling, 2019 Zozo Championship) during the time of his victories.

33. For the entire 2000 season, Woods had one round higher than 73—a 75 during the first round of the Masters.

34. Woods is the only player since 1900 to win a men’s professional major by 10 strokes or more: the 1997 Masters by 12; the 2000 U.S. Open by 15.

35. Woods won eight times at the same course: Bay Hill, Firestone and Torrey Pines.

36. Woods’s lowest score in official play is 61, shot four times—1999 Byron Nelson Classic, 2000 WGC-Invitational at Firestone, 2005 Buick Open and 2013 again at Firestone. Woods shot 59 on his home course of Isleworth the week prior to his 1997 Masters victory.

37. Woods’s lowest score in a major championship is a 63 at the 2007 PGA Championship played at Southern Hills, where he won.

The seven craziest stats about Tiger Woods' career

Here are some of the more staggering numbers from one of the best sporting careers we've ever seen..

Tiger Woods has posted some ludicrous numbers in his career. (Getty Images)

Golf has been changed forever by Tiger Woods' entrance into the sport. We have never seen (and may never see again) anyone like Woods and the feats he's been able to accomplish throughout his 19-year professional career.

Of course, some of those feats are more pronounced than others (sorry, Bell Canadian Open) and some are just downright insane.

I want to look back at Tiger's career today and the seven craziest stats he's posted since making his pro debut in 1996.

26.1 -- That's the percentage of tournaments won by Woods on the PGA Tour. He's entered 302 of them and won a whopping 79. Even more stunning is his 21.2 percent of majors won that he's entered. He's 14 for 66 so far and has started out 14 for 46 (30.4 percent!). 

11 -- That's how many times Tiger has missed the cut in his 302 PGA Tour tournaments played. For context: Phil Mickelson, arguably the second best player of Woods' generation, has over 70 missed cuts.

That 11 (two of which happened in 2014) is mythical.

683 -- That's how many weeks Woods has been No. 1 in the world. He has the 1st, 2nd, 6th and 11th longest streaks at No. 1 ever. He has twice been No. 1 for over 263 weeks in a row.

Nobody else has ever touched 100 in a row.

21 -- This is one of my favorite sneaky Tiger stats but at the end of 2006 he won six tournaments in a row and broke 70 in 21 of 24 rounds. I mean, look at this!

tiger woods tour stats

Oh yeah, then he won his first tournament in 2007 as well.

19.4 -- On May 20, 2001, Tiger led the world golf rankings by 19.4 points over Mickelson, who was in second place.

To put that into context for you, No. 1 in the world right now, Rory McIlroy, only has a 11.6-point lead. ( Wink of the CBS Eye to  Chris Charles . )

4 -- This gets overlooked, but Woods has only finished outside the top 10 at the Masters just four times. He's only finished outside of the top five a total of six times. Six times out of 17!  That's absurd.

His finishes outside the top 10 are as follows: T15, T18, T22 and T40. If Woods only played the Masters for his career, he would be a no-doubt Hall of Famer.

14 -- It's still incredible, despite the fact that he'll never get to 18 majors, that he's won 14 of them. Woods' career will likely ultimately be looked upon by many as a disappointment because of how good he was at such a young age, but we got to (and are getting to) see history unfurl in front of our eyes.

The 14th major of Woods' career seemed to be a harbinger of at least 10 more, and maybe it will be (no, it won't).

Even if it isn't the fact that we watched Woods, as a professional, win 14 of his first 46 majors is something we should always treasure as golf fans.

This thread of ridiculous Tiger Woods stats is the perfect way to celebrate the Big Cat’s birthday

1359898353

Sam Greenwood

Today is December 30th. You know what that means. No, New Year’s Eve eve isn’t a holiday now. It’s Tiger Woods’ birthday; the day the universe decided to grace this tiny speck of dust in the sky with the greatest golfer it has ever seen. This year, Woods turns 46. He’s no spring chicken anymore, and 2021 in particular came with its own unique set of ups and downs, but there’s still plenty of cause to celebrate. So join us as we ring in another year of Tiger with this super-thread of his most ridiculous, barely believable stats over the years. What were you expecting? Cake?

Excellent work by Justin Ray. We commend you for your service, sir. That European Tour DP World Tour anecdote is particularly hilarious, but each defies logic in its own unique way. Here’s hoping by the time the Tiger clock strikes 47 next December, that he’s added one or two more milestones to the list.

PGA Tour creates sponsor exemption for Tiger Woods, cites 'exceptional lifetime achievement'

Tiger Woods expresses his frustration about his poor performance at Pinehurst and casts doubt on his future participation at the U.S. Open. (0:32)

The PGA Tour has created a special sponsor exemption for 15-time major champion Tiger Woods -- and Woods alone -- based on his "exceptional lifetime achievement," the tour told its members in a memo Tuesday night.

The sponsor exemption would be available for Woods to compete in the eight signature events, which feature limited fields, increased prize money and FedEx Cup points.

Woods, an 82-time winner on the PGA Tour, wouldn't otherwise qualify for the signature events with $20 million purses because he isn't playing enough competitive golf after returning to the tour from serious injuries suffered in a car wreck in February 2021.

The PGA Tour policy board approved the special sponsor exemption during a joint meeting with the PGA Tour Enterprises board of directors on Tuesday in Hartford, Connecticut.

In the memo, a copy of which was obtained by ESPN, the tour told its members, "An additional sponsor exemption will be created to recognize Tiger Woods in his own category as a player who has reached an exceptional lifetime achievement threshold of 80+ career wins."

This season, the eight signature events were The Sentry, AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Genesis Invitational, Arnold Palmer Invitational, RBC Heritage, Wells Fargo Championship, Memorial Tournament and the Travelers Championship.

In the memo, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said the policy board was considering implementing a 36-hole cut in each of the signature events -- only the Genesis Invitational, Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Memorial currently do. The board took no action and will continue discussing the topic.

The tour said it would also develop an alternate list that would ensure that each of the signature events had a field of 72 players. The Travelers Championship has only 71 players after Rory McIroy withdrew Monday .

Woods, 48, has competed in only nine official PGA Tour events the past three seasons since returning to action at the 2022 Masters. The only non-major event he has competed in is the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club outside Los Angeles, which he hosts and benefits his foundation.

Woods withdrew from the second round of the Genesis Invitational in February because of illness. He finished 60th at the Masters and missed the cut at the PGA Championship and last week's U.S. Open .

Woods said he planned to compete in next month's Open Championship, scheduled for July 18-21 at Royal Troon Golf Course in Scotland.

When Woods was asked at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 on Friday if playing in more events might help him perform better in the majors, he didn't seem ready to play additional tournaments.

"I've only got one more tournament this season," Woods said. "Even if I win the British Open, I don't think I'll be in the [FedEx Cup] playoffs. Just one more event and then I'll come back whenever I come back."

In the memo, Monahan also gave members an update on the tour's negotiations with Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, which is considering a sizable investment in PGA Tour Enterprises. The PIF has funded the rival LIV Golf League the past three years.

Woods and other members of a transaction subcommittee met with PIF governor Yasir Al-Rumayyan and others in New York on June 7.

"As we've said in the past -- we can't negotiate in public -- but we are making progress," Monahan told the policy board, according to the memo. "Two weeks ago, members of our PGA Tour Enterprises transaction subcommittee met in New York with Yasir Al-Rumayyan, the Governor of the PIF, as well as members of his team. During that meeting, we reached consensus on several items, but both parties recognize that there is still work to do to reach a final agreement.

"Our talks are ongoing, with the goal of developing a shared vision for the future of professional golf that is pro-competitive and provides players with the best global opportunities."

Whose career would you rather have: jack nicklaus or tiger woods, share this article.

The greatest of all time.

It’s a title that’s become common in conversations about sports and gets thrown around far too casually in some regards these days. In golf, it’s reserved for two people: Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.

Both are legends of the game, but who deserves the greatest title? The merits of both are often debated on 19 th holes around the country, with the younger players usually siding with Tiger, and vice-versa for Jack. It’s difficult to compare players across eras, and when you look at the numbers, an argument can be made for each.

So, whose career would you rather have, Woods or Nicklaus?

The argument for Nicklaus is pretty simple: he won the most majors and had even more runner-up finishes in the biggest events. While five players have won the Players twice (Woods included), Nicklaus is the only player to win the Tour’s flagship event three times, doing so in the event’s first 5 years.

Woods might be a few majors short, but he still has time to catch Nicklaus (though the chances of that have greatly decreased since his single-car accident in 2021). Fans will argue Woods played against better competition, which gives him an edge seeing as he won nine more PGA Tour and 32 more European Tour events. In fairness, playing in Europe wasn’t as common in Nicklaus’ time, but the number is impressive nonetheless.

National team appearances are a challenging comparison due to playing partners being a tricky variable. Woods has played in eight Ryder Cups and boasts a 13-21-3 record. Nicklaus has played in six, with a 17–8–3 record. Nicklaus is 1-1 as a U.S. captain in the Ryder Cup and 2-1-1 leading the Americans in the Presidents Cup. Woods made his debut as a U.S. captain at the 2019 Presidents Cup, where he also played and went 3-0-0.

And then there’s the money element. Woods was able to monetize his talent more in his era, topping the PGA Tour’s all-time earnings list at a whopping $120,895,206. Nicklaus made just $5,734,031, placing him 338th. Woods made more on Tour in one year than Nicklaus did in his entire career 11 times: 1999 ( $6,616,585 ), 2000 ( $9,188,321 ), 2002 ( $6,912,625 ), 2003 ( $6,673,413 ), 2005 ( $10,628,024 ), 2006 ( $9,941,563 ), 2007 ( $10,867,052 ), 2008 ( $5,775,000 ), 2009 ( $10,508,163 ), 2012 ( $6,133,158 ), 2013 ( $8,553,439 ).

The off-course earnings aren’t even a comparison. Forbes estimates Woods’ net worth to be at least $1 billion, which puts him alongside NBA stars LeBron James and Michael Jordan as the world’s only billionaire athletes.

Both are Hall of Famers and have been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor. While Nicklaus has the slight advantage on the course, Woods has the upper hand off of it (scandal and injuries aside).

So, whose career would you rather have?

Metrics show new competitive structure is delivering against objectives

Change Text Size

Two adjustments to the PGA TOUR’s Signature Events highlighted a PGA TOUR Policy Board/PGA TOUR Enterprises Board joint meeting in Hartford, Connecticut, on Tuesday.

The news went out to players Tuesday night as many of them prepared to play in the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands, the last of eight Signature Events this season.

The changes were approved after the PGA TOUR Policy Board’s comprehensive review of the 2024 schedule and competitive framework, which has met expectations to deliver a strong product to fans and sponsors. As such, it will continue apace next season with two modifications.

The first adjustment will impose a minimum field size of 72 players for the Signature Events. Although eligible players participated in Signature Events with no mandatory participation requirement this year, the eight Signature Events saw an average of one eligible player not participate, with two events having 100 percent participation and one event having a maximum of three players not participate.

The other adjustment to the Signature Events will introduce a Sponsor Exemption for Lifetime Achievement – 80 or more career victories – to recognize Tiger Woods in his own category. Among his 82 career wins, Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard eight times and the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday five times. Both are Signature Events.

“It was important to our membership. It's something we talked about with the PAC. It was important to our player directors. It was important to our board. It's important to me because the man, as the exemption says, has won more than 80 events," PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan said during a media session at the Travelers Championship. "And I think being able to give him the opportunity to compete in these events, any event he's ever played in, he's made it bigger, he's made it better. He's drawn more eyeballs to it. I think just as an organization, we wanted to celebrate his exceptionalism in that manner."

Throughout this review, there was discussion around applying a cut uniformly at all Signature Events, with the perspective that it could provide consistency and more excitement for fans. While no change was made by the Board during the meeting, this subject will continue to be studied throughout the remainder of the year, and as part of this process, the TOUR will garner feedback from players, title sponsors and fans.

The Policy Board also approved a proposal to delay the first collective reshuffle of all conditional categories until players in the 126-150 category have had the chance to play in approximately 3-4 Full-Field events. After that, regular reshuffles throughout the remainder of the season will continue. Exact reshuffle dates for the 2025 season will be finalized following the release of the 2025 schedule.

Other than the two adjustments to the Signature Events, Tuesday's memo delineated how the new competitive framework has delivered on its objectives and aligned with models and projections. It reduced the number of Signature Events for a schedule cadence that allows for the most flexibility for the players; succeeded in bringing the best players together more often; and preserved access points from outside the prior year’s FedExCup top 50 thanks to the Aon Next 10 and Aon Swing 5 .

According to the metrics from this season:

  • Players in the top 50 of the prior season’s FedExCup have participated in an average of five Full-Field events, with the strength of field for Full-Field events (as measured by top 50 and top 125 participation) seeing an increase of 35 percent, YOY.
  • In addition to the top 50 players eligible for each Signature Event, 65 unique players have accessed one Signature Event this season (projections estimated 70).
  • 51-70 Prior Season FEC = 20 players
  • 71-125 Prior Season FEC = 17 players
  • Other = 28 players
  • Top 50 retention rate through the U.S. Open is 64 percent – 18 new players moving into the top 50 – which meets projections for the season of 64 percent.
  • Top 125 retention rate is 74 percent, or 32 new players moving into the top 125 (the historical average under the old points model was 74 percent).
  • No significant changes from historical values for the points needed to make the top 70, with current projections of 578 (lower), 627 (average) and 724 (upper). For comparison, it took 617 points to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs last season as a top 70.
