This infographic about Tiger Woods proves he’s the greatest ever

Tiger exuded greatness from the very moment he burst onto the TOUR in 1996 as a full-fledged professional. Some saw his early confidence as arrogant and unrealistic; an ambitious whipper snapper who needed putting in his place. Curtis Strange was one such critic and he’s lived to regret his patronising interview ever since . This interview from Tiger’s debut at the Milwaukee Open will haunt Curtis for the rest of his life.

In light of Tiger’s comeback we thought it was time to bring this infographic to your attention. It shows that Big Cat was a combined -1988 under par in his PGA TOUR career between 1992-2013. The past two years are largely insignificant due to Woods’ injuries, so it has been left out.

Nobody in the history of the game has even come close to -1988 over the course of their career. Jordan Spieth would require ten straight years like 2015 to catch Woods (Spieth averaged approximately -12 per tournament in 2015). Of all the hype about Spieth and Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods is simply the father of golf, past or present day. His records will stand the test of time, and for that, we salute him.
