Major Victories

1997 Masters
Course: Augusta National Golf Club -
Augusta, Ga.
After 54 holes: 9-shot lead over Costantino Rocca
Final round: 69 (3-under)
Winning score: 18-under-par 270 (70-66-65-69)
Margin of victory: 12
Runner-up: Tom Kite
Highlights: In his first major championship as a professional, Tiger began his front nine on Thursday with an opening 40 (+4) but finished his round with a blistering 6-under-par 30 to get himself back in contention. Woods continued his historic run, playing his final 63 holes in 22-under par. Woods became the youngest Masters champion at 21 and also set the all-time scoring record at 18-under par.
1999 PGA Championship
Course: Medinah Country Club (Course No. 3) -
Medinah, Ill.
After 54 holes: Tied with Mike Weir
Final round: 72 (even)
Winning score: 11-under-par 277 (70-67-68-72)
Margin of victory: 1
Runner-up: Sergio Garcia
Highlights: Mike Weir, who was playing in the final group of a major for the first time, shot an 8-over-par round of 80 to eliminate himself from contention, but a double bogey by Woods on the 13th hole forced him to hold off a dramatic charge by a 19-year-old Sergio Garcia. Tiger parred the final two holes, sinking a clutch downhill eight-footer for par on the par-3 17th to win by one over Garcia. With the victory, Tiger finished in the top 10 in seven of his first 12 majors since turning pro, including near-misses at the 1999 U.S. and British Opens.
2000 U.S. Open
Course: Pebble Beach Golf Links -
Pebble Beach, Calif.
After 54 holes: 10-shot lead over Ernie Els
Final round: 67 (4-under)
Winning score: 12-under-par 272 (65-69-71-67)
Margin of victory: 15
Runner-up: Ernie Els, Miguel Angel Jimenez
Highlights: In the greatest performance in major championship history, Woods dominated the field and ran away with the 100th U.S. Open by a record-setting 15 shots. In 1862, Old Tom Morris won the British Open by 13 strokes, previously the largest margin of victory in a major championship. The old U.S. Open record for margin of victory, 11 strokes by Willie Smith, had stood since 1899. Tiger became the first player to finish a U.S. Open in double digits under par, and he did it in the same year that no one else in the field was able to break par for 72 holes.
2000 British Open
Course: Old Course - St. Andrews, Fife, Scotland
After 54 holes: 6-shot lead over David Duval
Final round: 69 (3-under)
Winning score: 19-under-par 269 (67-66-67-69)
Margin of victory: 8
Runner-up: Ernie Els, Thomas Bjorn
Highlights: Woods took control of The Open Championship with a second-round 66 to take a three-shot lead into the weekend. Duval cut Tiger's lead back to three on the front nine Sunday, but Woods pulled away with birdies at the 10th and 12th to win his first Claret Jug and become the youngest player (24) in history to win the career grand slam. Woods' 19-under-par total also set the new scoring record at The Open Championship.
2000 PGA Championship
Course: Valhalla Golf Club - Louisville, Ky.
After 54 holes: 1-shot lead over Bob May, Scott Dunlap
Final round: 67 (5-under)
Winning score: 18-under-par 270 (66-67-70-67)
Margin of victory: Playoff over Bob May
Runner-up: Bob May
Highlights: In a classic duel, Tiger Woods and Bob May played brilliantly down the stretch, each posting a bogey-free 31 on the back nine Sunday. Despite holding at least a share of the lead all four days, Tiger needed to birdie the final two holes to force a playoff -- the final putt coming on a tough, downhill six-footer to force a three-hole aggregate playoff. Woods birdied the first playoff hole and held on with two final pars to become the first player since Ben Hogan in 1953 to win three majors in a year. By finishing at 18-under 270, Tiger became the scoring record-holder at all four major championships.
2001 Masters
Course: Augusta National Golf Club -
Augusta, Ga.
After 54 holes: 1-shot lead over Phil Mickelson
Final round: 68 (4-under)
Winning score: 16-under-par 272 (70-66-68-68)
Margin of victory: 2
Runner-up: David Duval
Highlights: In a dramatic back-nine finish involving the top three players in the world, Tiger took the lead on the 11th hole after a fantastic approach shot and never lost control of the championship. Bogeys by both Duval and Mickelson at the par-3 16th killed any hope of a late comeback as Tiger won his second green jacket. Tiger became the first player to win all four professional majors in a row -- called "the Tiger Slam" since it did not come in the same calendar year. It is the most stunning stretch of major championship golf in the game's history.
2002 Masters
Course: Augusta National Golf Club -
Augusta, Ga.
After 54 holes: Tied with Retief Goosen
Final round: 71 (1-under)
Winning score: 12-under-par 276 (70-69-66-71)
Margin of victory: 3
Runner-up: Retief Goosen
Highlights: Despite having five of the top seven players in the world within four shots of the lead, no one was able to challenge Tiger on Sunday at Augusta. Woods took an early lead once Retief Goosen fell three shots behind after the first three holes, and both Ernie Els and Vijay Singh scored triple bogeys on the back nine as Tiger successfully defended a major championship for the first time in his career.
2002 U.S. Open
Course: Bethpage State Park (Black Course) -
Farmingdale, N.Y.
After 54 holes: 4-shot lead over Sergio Garcia
Final round: 72 (2-over)
Winning score: 3-under-par 277 (67-68-70-72)
Margin of victory: 3
Runner-up: Phil Mickelson
Highlights: Tiger became the first player since Jack Nicklaus accomplished the feat in 1972 to win the first two legs of the grand slam. A cold rain Friday had no effect on Woods as he fired a 2-under-par 68 to extend his lead in the championship. Tiger pushed his lead to four strokes with birdies on two of the last three holes Saturday. Sergio Garcia and Phil Mickelson reduced Tiger's lead to two on Sunday, but a towering 2-iron to the par-5 13th hole set up another birdie as Woods secured a three-shot victory. The win marked Tiger's seventh victory in his last 11 majors and he went to 8-0 when leading a major on Sunday.
2005 Masters
Course: Augusta National Golf Club -
Augusta, Ga.
After 54 holes: 3-shot lead over Chris DiMarco
Final round: 71 (1-under)
Winning score: 12-under-par 276 (74-66-65-71)
Margin of victory: Playoff (birdie on first)
Runner-up: Chris DiMarco
Highlights: Tiger scored a memorable chip-in at the par-3 16th on Sunday, and despite two bogeys on the final two holes, defeated Chris DiMarco with a 15-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole (No. 18), becoming only the third person to win at least four Masters Tournaments, joining Jack Nicklaus (six) and Arnold Palmer (four). Beginning the third round six strokes behind DiMarco, a record-tying seven-hole birdie streak beginning at the seventh moved Woods into first place by three strokes after rain forced both Woods and DiMarco to complete nine holes of the third round Sunday morning.
2005 British Open
Course: Old Course - St. Andrews, Fife, Scotland
After 54 holes: 2-shot lead over Jose Maria Olazabal
Final round: 70 (2-under)
Winning score: 14-under-par 274 (66-67-71-70)
Margin of victory: 5
Runner-up: Colin Montgomerie
Highlights: Woods took the early lead at The Open Championship, opening with rounds of 66 and 67. After battling tough conditions on Saturday, Woods' third-round 71 left him with a two-shot lead over Jose Maria Olazabal. Local favorite Colin Montgomerie and Olazabal tried to maintain some early momentum Sunday, but Tiger's mastery of St. Andrews proved too much as he cruised on the back nine to a five-shot win. With the victory, Woods and Jack Nicklaus are the only players to win the career grand slam twice.
2006 British Open
Course: Royal Liverpool Golf Club - Hoylake, England
After 54 holes: 1-shot lead over
Chris DiMarco, Sergio Garcia, Ernie Els
Final round: 67 (5-under)
Winning score: 18-under-par 270 (67-65-71-67)
Margin of victory: 2
Runner-up: Chris DiMarco
Highlights: Playing controlled, precision golf and displaying mental toughness from start to finish, Tiger Woods pulled away for a two-stroke victory over Chris DiMarco in the 135th Open Championship. Woods claimed his third Claret Jug and became the first back-to-back winner since Tom Watson in 1982-83. The win was marked with emotion as Tiger was playing in only his third event since the passing of his father, Earl. Woods broke down in tears after the winning putt.
2006 PGA Championship
Course: Medinah Country Club (Course No. 3) -
Medinah, Ill.
After 54 holes: Tied with Luke Donald
Final round: 68 (4-under)
Winning score: 18-under-par 270 (69-68-65-68)
Margin of victory: 5
Runner-up: Shaun Micheel
Highlights: Taking control from the start, Woods romped to his 12th major championship, moving into second place on the all-time list behind only Jack Nicklaus. Woods fired a closing-round 4-under-par 68 and made only three bogeys all week. Woods previously won the 1999 PGA at Medinah and becomes the first player to win the tournament at the same course. He became only the fifth player to claim three or more PGA titles, and also won every major by at least five strokes. He became 12-0 in majors when leading or tied after 54 holes and became the first player in history to win at least two majors in consecutive years.
2007 PGA Championship
Course: Southern Hills Country Club - Tulsa, Okla.
After 54 holes: 3-shot lead over Stephen Ames
Final round: 69 (1-under)
Winning score: 8-under-par 272 (71-63-69-69)
Margin of victory: 2
Runner-up: Woody Austin
Highlights: With temperatures near 100 degrees all week, Woods opened the 89th PGA Championship with a 1-over-par 71 on Thursday, leaving him six strokes behind the early lead. But Tiger took control of the tournament with a record-setting 63 in Round 2 to move two strokes ahead of Scott Verplank. A 69 on Saturday left Tiger with a three-shot lead over Stephen Ames, but it was Woody Austin and Ernie Els who made a run at Tiger on Sunday. Tiger's third birdie on the front nine of the final round came at the long par-3 eighth, after Woods drilled a 2-iron to the back fringe and sunk his 25-foot putt, extending his lead to five strokes over Els. But bogeys on nine and 14 cut Woods' lead to one over Els and Austin. Tiger responded with a textbook birdie at 15. The birdie gave Tiger a two-stroke advantage and pars on the last three holes secured the title. The win was his 59th on the PGA TOUR and his 13th major championship. Tiger went to 13-0 in majors when leading or tied after 54 holes.
2008 U.S. Open
Course: Torrey Pines Golf Course (South Course) -
La Jolla, Calif.
After 54 holes: 1-shot lead over Lee Westwood
Final round: 73 (2-over)
Winning score: 1-under-par 283 (72-68-70-73)
Margin of victory: 18-hole playoff
(Par on first sudden-death hole)
Runner-up: Rocco Mediate
Highlights: In a riveting performance that left many speechless, Tiger Woods refused to buckle Saturday in the third round of the 108th U.S. Open Championship. Even if his left knee did. Sparked by a pair of back-nine eagles, Woods roared back from a five-stroke deficit with six holes remaining to grab the outright lead at rollicking Torrey Pines. After a back-and-forth final round, Woods found himself needing birdie at the par-5 18th to tie Rocco Mediate. Facing tie or elimination, he stroked the putt, and it tumbled into the hole just inside the right edge. In a pressure-packed playoff Monday, Tiger outlasted Mediate to win his third U.S. Open Championship on the first sudden-death playoff hole after each player shot even-par 71s in the 18-hole playoff round. It marked the 14th major title for the 32-year-old Woods, who improved his unbeaten streak to 14-0 when tied or leading a major championship after 54 holes.
