Tiger Woods received standing ovations at every hole at the Augusta Masters 2022, despite he closed at the 47th place. Tiger replicated his worst result ever by closing this tournament at +13 which saw him triumph five times.
Tiger has made it known that he will certainly be competing in the July Open Championship in St Andrews, where in 2000 he triumphed at the age of 24. He did not pronounce himself, however, on the second Major of the year, the PGA Championship in May.
"These days they told me I have a lot of work to do," he commented. Scottie Scheffler won The Augusta Master 2022, legitimizing with a great performance in the most prestigious tournament of the year the recent conquest of the first place in the golf ranking.
The traditional green jacket of the winner goes to the Texan and the check for 2 million and 700 thousand dollars. The three-shot advantage gained in three rounds was immediately reduced to one for two immediate birdies of his pursuer, Australian Cameron Smith.
On hole 3, the shortest on the course, Sheffler pocketed the birdie from off the green. Smith, from the same position, had to cash in the bogey. Rory, McIlroy finished the lap with an amazing 64 which earned him second place.
Scheffler with birdies at 14 and 15 closed with 3 shots on McIlroy and 5 on Smith reached in third place by Shane Lowry.
Tiger Woods was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame and thanked his family for their success.
In five seasons, from 1999 to 2003, he won 32 tournaments in 101 appearances. Between 2005 and 2009 he won 31 out of 75. He was Nominated Player of the Year ten times and as many finished at the top of the money list. Tiger Woods is one of only five golfers in history to have won the Grand Slam in addition to having won 15 Majors and collected a total of 82 successes.
In 2014 he became the first sportsman in the world to have broken the billion dollar barrier. Astronomical figure that also justifies the fact that Tiger Woods can afford a yacht like the Privacy, a real fairytale boat. And obviously we are talking about something that has cost a lot.
Tiger Woods has won 110 professional tournaments, including 15 majors, in his multi-decade career, making him the most successful player in history. He held the top spot in the world rankings for a total of 683 weeks, including 281 consecutive weeks, and is the only golfer to have won all four major tournaments of the modern era in a single year.
In 2014 he became the first sportsman in the world to have exceeded a billion dollars in earnings from various sponsors. In 2019, President Donald Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States of America. On February 23, 2021, he is involved in a car accident in Los Angeles and suffers numerous fractures in his legs.
