Tiger Woods is arguably the greatest golfer of all time, but his Major tally is currently three short of record holder Jack Nicklaus who has an incredible 18 victories in golf’s four biggest events.
Woods has managed to win 15 Major titles, nine more than arch rival Phil Mickelson – who has the second-most Major wins in this era – but Tiger could well have more had he not struggled with injuries through the years.

What Is Tiger Woods’ Best Chance Of Another Major Victory?

THE 151st OPEN, ROYAL LIVERPOOL
Woods will be returning to the scene of his incredible 2006 Open Championship victory next year, Royal Liverpool, also known as Hoylake. It was in 2006 where he plotted his way around the burnt links, hitting just one driver the entire week.
He’ll be hoping for more burnt out conditions to keep the course as short as possible and also bring the pot bunkers into play for his competitors. Many think Woods has another Open in him because the Open rota courses tend to be flatter layouts, shorter and more about patience, course management and…
