Tiger Woods

US PGA Contenders 2012 - Tiger Woods

PGA Championship Tiger WoodsThe incomparable Tiger Woods needs no introduction to golf fans, he is without any question, the greatest golfer in the world today and in our opinion the greatest golfer that has ever lived. He is a four times PGA Champion, having won in 2006 and 2007, this added to his two previous PGA victories from 2000 and 1999. He was also second in 2002, which makes his record in the PGA awesome to say the very least. He has carved out a unique place in USPGA history. If that is not enough, he has a further ten Major Championships to his name, making fourteen in total and is second only to Jack Nicklaus, who has eighteen.

Tiger though has been been way below his best for the past couple of years and he has tumbled down the world rankings, he has been injured for some time and only made his return to the game last week at the Bridgestone tournament. At his best no one can touch the talent of Tiger Woods but we have not seen that for some time now and he heads to Atlanta looking to end his three year Major drought.

World Ranking

His golfing accomplishments go on and on, but suffice it to say, he has been the world number one golfer for 9 years out of the last 12. Recently we have seen Tiger slip down the rankings through loss of form and injury and he will be eager to get back in the top ten as soon as possible.

Playing Style

Woods has an exciting all –round game, although his driving, whilst one of the longest is not necessarily one of the most accurate. But such is his power and shot making ability, his approach work from difficult fairway positions is amongst the very best. His real strength is his short game and putting, particularly when under pressure. Unlike a lot of players, Woods puts a lot of emphasis on athleticism and diet and is very professional when it comes to practicing.
