Tiger Woods is the best golfer to ever walk a course in the history of the sport.After the events of the last few years, a lot of people have lost sight of just how good Tiger was.
We’ve put together a collection of videos that best exemplify just how good Tiger was when he was at his peak.
Can Tiger re-find his winning ways of his glory days?
It all started at the 1997 Masters. Tiger's first major tournament victory came at America's most famous golf course.
Tiger found himself in the woods while playing hole 15 at the 1999 PGA Championship. In order to make it back to the green, he had to get creative. Which, he did. Tiger went on to win the tournament and it was his second major victory ever.
No one ever dominated Pebble Beach quite like Tiger did in 2000.
At the 100th US Open, Woods did something no golfer had ever done previously at one of the world's toughest courses: finish with a double-digit score under par. After a final round 67, Tiger finished at -12. His 15-stroke margin of victory is the widest ever in major tournament history.
The 2000 PGA Championship was about as close as a tournament can possibly get. Woods and PGA journeyman Bob May finished the tournament tied at eighteen under par, tied for the all-time record. This forced a three-hole playoff between the two.
Woods prevailed in the playoff, and capped off his victory with a putt that made him so excited that he ran to the hole and emphatically pointed down once the ball hit the bottom of the cup.
The 2000 Open Championship is regarded as one of Tiger's best performances ever. He finished eight strokes ahead of his nearest competitors. Not only that, his -19 finish is the lowest ever at a major championship.
This title broke Jack Nicklaus' record of being the youngest golfer ever to win all four major championships.
Winning all four major golf tournaments in a single career is impressive. Winning all four major tournaments in a row is downright daffy. Tiger Woods did it.
After winning the 2000 U.S Open, Open Championship, and PGA Championship, Tiger won the first tournament of 2001, the Masters. No golfer ever before held the four most recent major titles at once and no one has done it since. It's likely that the 'Tiger Slam' will never ever be duplicated.
There are no words for this chip. Just sit back and enjoy.
Tiger's 2006 Open Championship was his second consecutive title at the tournament, and his third overall, but that's not why it was special.
Just a mere two months after Tiger's father, Earl Woods, passed away from a heart attack, in Tiger's first appearance at a major since his death, he posted an incredible 270 score and finished eighteen below par.
One of the lasting images of the tournament was Tiger embracing now former caddy Steve Williams and openly weeping into his shoulder after clinching the victory.
The 2006 PGA Championship was held at Medinah Country Club and it was, at the time, the longest course to ever host a major tournament. This didn't stop Woods from winning his 12th major.
Again, Tiger asserted his dominance. He won by five strokes and finished with a tournament score of 270, good for eighteen under par.
The 2007 PGA Championship was held at Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This was a course that was quite unkind to Tiger in the past. Consider this tournament to be his revenge.
Woods consistently led throughout the weekend, but he did come close to letting his lead slip away after bogeying the 14th hole in the final round. With his lead down to a single stroke, Tiger birdied the 15th and parred in to hang on to first place.
If the 2008 US Open is the last major Tiger ever wins, at least he went out in dramatic fashion.
Playing on a knee that had two stress fractures and a damaged ACL, Tiger limped around the golf course all weekend long and ended up finishing tied for the first place lead with tour clubhouse favourite Rocco Mediate. The final round was a bit of a struggle for Tiger, as he double-bogeyed on the first hole, and would bogey the second and the thirteenth.
Using awkward stances and his putter as a walking stick, Tiger hit some clutch shots to rebound from his earlier errors. His efforts forced an 18-hole playoff to take place during the next day. This round also ended in a tie after Tiger got a birdie on the 18th.
It all came down to a sudden death hole on the 7th which Mediate bogeyed and Tiger parred. After the tournament, Tiger withdrew from the rest of the season's competitions due to his knee injury.
Highlights of the sudden death.
When Tiger was just a toddler in 1978, he appeared on The Mike Douglas Show and displayed his skills against well-known golf enthusiast Bob Hope.
He was clearly impressed.
