"You can have so many different weather conditions. That's just one of the unique things about The Open and why it's my favourite Major Championship." Tiger woods
From a very young age Tiger Woods played to win. A burning desire to be the best and beat the game of golf drove him to become one of the most successful golfers of all time. Tiger would go on to lift the Claret Jug 3 times.
Ended 11 years without a major, moving only three behind Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18, when he completed a remarkable comeback from injury to win his fifth Masters in April 2019.
He is the only man to hold all four majors at the same time. In 2000 Woods won the U.S. Open by a scarcely believable 15 strokes and The Open by eight with a then record 19 under par at St Andrews, before adding the PGA Championship in a play-off and completing his clean sweep at the following year's Masters.
After four back operations and a slump down the world rankings to 1,199th, he led with eight holes to go at Carnoustie in 2018 and then achieved his 80th PGA Tour title at the Tour Championship, followed a week later by his first Ryder Cup appearance since 2012.
In October 2019 Woods equalled Sam Snead’s record of 81 Tour wins when he took the ZOZO Championship in Japan, which in turn led to him picking himself for the Presidents Cup. He was unbeaten as playing-captain.
His first major, the 1997 Masters, was achieved by a record 12 shots when he was only 21, while he has twice won The Open at St Andrews and once at Royal Liverpool, as well as claiming a record 18 World Golf Championships.
