Celebrating Tiger Woods’ 46th birthday with 46 facts

31. Then again, 2005-2009 wasn’t too bad, either: 31 wins in 75 starts, 41.3 segments, with six majors.

32. In those 10 seasons (1999-2003; 2005-09) Tiger’s longest unwinnable dry spell was seven championships. His longest droughts in 2000 and 2009 were three championships.

33. Answer: Phil Mickelson. The question: Who ended Tiger’s winning streak with six straight championships at the 2000 Buick Invitational? Woods had won four in a row to close out 1999, then his first two in 2000 before hitting Lefty 18 underground to defeat Woods by four.

34. Answer: Nick O’Hearn. The question: Who is the other left-handed person stopping an impressive winning streak? Woods won seven consecutive championships (the last six in 2006, the first in 2007) when O’Hearn, the little-known Australian, beat Woods on 20 holes in the third round of the WGC-Match Play at Dove Mountain outside Tucson, Ariz.

35. Tiger is one of five players to win a Grand Slam career, but he did so more quickly (only 15 main starts as a pro) than Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus.

36. Only Tiger and Jack have won the Grand Slam three times.

37. An epic run of four consecutive major wins from the 2000 US Open to the 2001 Masters produced these numbers: 67.69 average scoring for 16 rounds, 65 under common, and 15 of his 16 rounds were under-par (and he was on par in another).

38. Tiger compiled an impressive two-year resume — 11 wins in 26 championships and the NCAA singles title in 1996. In that win, he moved the field so impressively that he closed in with an 80 — and still won four over Rory Sabatini.

39. Introduction to “Tiger Slam:” Seven down with seven holes, left, Tiger plays No. 12-18 in 5 under (including Eagle with hole at Level 4 15), shoots 31 in the back, and No. 64 in round 4 Matt Gogel stunned the 2000 Pebble Beach AT&T Pro-Am, his sixth straight win. “I was amazed, to be completely honest. I will never be amazed again,” said Jugel.

40. “Tiger Slam, Act 1:” Back at Pebble, Tiger closed out with 67 to 15 shots at the 2000 US Open. “Maybe my words can’t describe it, so I won’t even try,” Ernie Els said.

41. Tiger Slam, Act II: “Less control, but by a narrow margin, Tiger won the Open Championship by eight days at the old court. At the age of 24, he completed his Grand Slam career. “He is the chosen one,” said Mark Kalkavica.

42. Tiger Slam, Act III: “Becoming the second player (Ben Hogan, in 1953) to win three professional championships in one season, Woods defeated Bob May in a PGA Championship playoff. “Hogan had a tremendous focus and I think you see Tiger getting to that now,” Butch Harmon said.

43. Tiger Slam, Act IV: “An unprecedented big win completed a fourth in a row at the 2001 Masters and comes with the final round of 68 while paired with arch rival, Phil Mickelson, who shot 70 and didn’t seem to soak in the atmosphere. “I didn’t watch him play a stroke. I looked up and saw the ball go in,” Lefty said after the tiger flew at 72.second abbreviation The pit ignites thunder.

44. Tiger was sidelined with knee surgery after winning the 2008 US Open in Tory Pines, stopping a truly dominant stretch. The 2008 US Open was his 17th win in his last 28 games. Curtis Strange and Jim Forek have had 17 wins in their entire careers.

45. That prevailing period 1999-2000? Tiger played 151 rounds and had at least a share of the lead after 50 of them.

46. On March 9, the day before the 2022 PLAYERS Championship kicks off, Tiger will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
