Biography

Finally relinquished his World Number One title in November 2010 after 281 weeks, when Lee Westwood was elevated to the top spot. Won the last of his 14 Majors in remarkable fashion at the 2008 US Open Championship, playing through the pain of torn cruciate knee ligaments and a double stress fracture to beat Rocco Mediate in an 18-hole play-off. Was sidelined for the remainder of the year, then came close to adding to his Major haul at the 2009 US PGA Championship, a week after landing his 16th WGC title at the Bridgestone Invitational, but was overhauled by YE Yang at Hazeltine. Took a break from golf at the beginning of 2010 following revelations about his private life which led to the end of his marriage. Was picked for The 2010 Ryder Cup United States Team as one of Captain Corey Pavin’s wildcards and proved his doubters wrong by contributing three points from four as America lost by a point at The Celtic Manor Resort. In 1997, he claimed his first Major when he won the Masters by a record 12 strokes. His score of 270 was also a record, as was his age – 21 years, three months and 15 days. His greatest achievements of 2000 came mid-summer when he won the US Open Championship by a record 15 strokes, The Open Championship at St Andrews by eight and the US PGA Championship. Continued to keep the statisticians busy in 2001 when he won the Masters for the second time and in doing so became the first player in history to hold all four Majors at once. A child prodigy, he shot 48 for nine holes aged three. Was nicknamed ‘Tiger’ after a Vietnamese soldier, who was a friend of his father and mentor, Earl, who died in May 2006.
