Tiger Woods golf equipment through the years

Tiger Woods equipment at 2010 Players

At this point, every time Tiger Woods tees it up and competes, it becomes appointment television for golf lovers and sports fans around the world. It has been 27 years since Woods turned pro, but few celebrities or athletes have his star power, and it is fair to say that nearly every shot he has hit since he won the 1997 Masters has been photographed or captured on television.

Take a look at the gear the 15-time major winner has used since 2010.
