The first golf major of the year, The Masters, begins on Thursday, 11 April at the Augusta National Golf Club. Tiger Woods is back to his winning ways and looks ready to continue his pursuit of the Majors records held by Jack Nicklaus.
GOLF - Tiger Woods is about to start his final round at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday. At the start of the day he had a 2 stroke lead, making him the favourite to win this tournament. If he wins, he reclaims the number one spot of the World Golf Ranking for the first time since October 2010. Leading or co-leading after the third round, Woods has won a PGA Tour tournament 51 out of 54 times. Woods has won this tournament seven times and can equal the record number of wins at a single PGA tournament (Sam Snead won Greater Greensboro Open eight times).
GOLF - Tiger Woods’s victory at the Congressional last weekend gave him 74 career PGA victories and saw him move one clear of Jack Nicklaus, leapfrogging the Golden Bear into outright second place. The only total that Woods is still chasing is the 82 by Sam Snead.
GOLF - Tiger Woods emerged victorious at the Memorial Tournament on Sunday, earning his 73rd career tournament title. This makes Woods join Jack Nicklaus in second place all-time on that list. It was Woods’s fifth win at the Memorial. He needs nine more tournament victories to equal the all-time record.
GOLF - On this day, precisely 15 years ago, Tiger Woods won his first of 14 career Majors. The scene: Augusta National. The occasion: the 61st US Masters. Woods roared through the tournament, becoming the youngest player to be presented with the Green Jacket, a mark that stands until this very day. Woods won the 1997 US Masters by a staggering 12 strokes difference, even though he had turned pro only eight months earlier.
