Surprise? Here are some things Tiger Woods hasn’t done in golf

Surprise? Here are some things Tiger Woods hasn’t done in golf

Most wins in PGA Tour history? That’d be 82, and Tiger Woods is tied with Sam Snead atop that list.

Most money? That’s also a mark held by Mr. Woods, as he has won nearly $121 million in on-course earnings since turning pro.

Majors? Woods has 15, three shy of the all-time mark held by Jack Nicklaus. He may never catch him, but Tiger’s place in major history is secure.

Most weeks ranked No. 1 in Official World Golf Ranking? Woods blows the field away there with 683 weeks (Greg Norman is next with 331).

The list of his accomplishments takes a while to pore over, but when one scans the PGA Tour record book, some items of note stand out.

Here’s a closer look at some of the (perhaps surprising) things Woods hasn’t done in his pro golf career.

Corey Pavin and Tiger Woods at the 2006 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

The lowest nine-hole scoring mark on the PGA Tour is held by Corey Pavin, who had a front-nine, 8-under 26 at the 2006 U.S. Bank Championship at Brown Deer Park Golf Club in Milwaukee.

The low 18-hole mark is, of course, the 58, the one and only 58 in Tour history, shot by Jim Furyk at the 2016 Travelers Championship.

Woods is also not among the 11 golfers who have shot a 59, nor does he have one of the 48 60s. Woods’ lowest score on the PGA Tour is a 61, which he accomplished four times:

  • 1999 GTE Byron Nelson Invitational
  • 2000 WGC-NEC Invitational
  • 2005 Buick Open
  • 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

The 36-hole, 54-hole and 72-hole scoring records are also not held by Woods.

Tiger Woods won nine times in 2000. He won eight events two different times, in 1999 and again in 2006.

But the all-time mark for most wins in a season may never be broken. In 1945, Byron Nelson won 18 times, including a stretch of 11 in a row. Tiger’s longest winning streak is seven.

Woods famously won the 2000 U.S. at Pebble Beach by a whopping 15 shots. He finished 12 under, the only golfer to break par, en route to routing the field on the Monterey Peninsula.

The PGA Tour mark for largest victory margin is 16, and it’s held by four golfers—Bobby Locke, Sam Snead, Joe Kirkwood, Sr. and J. Douglas Edgar—but none…
