Took a step closer to achieving golf’s Grand Slam when he won his first Open Championship at Muirfield in 2013 with a stunning 66 in the final round to finish three shots clear. Victory came weeks after he was pipped to the U.S. Open title by Justin Rose at Merion. Almost made it Major title number six at the 2014 US PGA Championship at Valhalla, only to narrowly miss out to Rory McIlroy. Finished second to Henrik Stenson at the 2016 Open Championship in a battle for the ages. Won his fourth Major Championship at the Masters Tournament in 2010, sparking emotional scenes on the 18th green when he embraced his wife, Amy, who was battling breast cancer. It was his third Masters Tournament victory following triumphs at Augusta National in 2006 and 2004, when he won his first Major at the 47th attempt. Also clinched the 2005 US PGA Championship to become the first left-hander to win the title and first to win two Majors. In 2009 he won his first two WGC titles, the WGC-CA Championship and the WGC-HSBC Champions – in the latter he defeated Ross Fisher and Lee Westwood in a sudden-death play-off to land his first title outside the United States since 1993. Victory made amends for four months earlier when he lost out in a play-off to Frenchman Grégory Havret in the Scottish Open. Right-handed at everything he does except golf. Started playing left-handed, aged 18 months, after watching his father face on and trying to duplicate his right-handed swing. First amateur since Scott Verplank in 1985 to win a US PGA Tour event, the 1991 Northern Telecom Open. Turned professional in 1992 and his first win came in his hometown of San Diego in 1993 Buick Invitational of California. Won the 1995 Northern Telecom Open to become the first player to win it as both amateur and professional. Made his eleventh consecutive Ryder Cup appearance in 2016 at Hazeltine National.
