Biography

Missed most of the 2014 campaign after undergoing surgery to cure a pinched nerve in his back. It was the latest in a series of physical ailments for the once dominant American, who held the World Number One spot for 281 consecutive weeks before Lee Westwood took over that mantle in November 2010. After a relatively fallow period he returned to winning ways with five victories in 2013, including two World Golf Championships and The Players Championship, en route to collecting the PGA TOUR Player of the Year award for a record 11th time. 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. Claimed the first of his 14 Majors in 1997, when he won the Masters Tournament 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 shots and then added 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 the Vietnamese soldier friend of his father and mentor, Earl, who died in May 2006.
