Tiger Woods set another particular record! The Californian's set of golf clubs used by the American to triumph at the Tiger Slam in 2000-2001, when he managed to win Us Open, British Open, PGA Championship and The Masters, were sold at auction for the sum of over 5 million dollars.
Todd Brock, who auctioned the Woods memorabilia, said: "I had been for 12 years and hadn't told anyone they were in my possession. I have had the opportunity to admire them all this time considering myself a privileged one.
" 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. At the Augusta Masters 2022, Tiger Woods received standing ovations at every hole. 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. In August 2020, Scheffler finished tied for fourth at the 2020 PGA Championship. He won $528,000 in prize money in the tournament. On August 21, 2020, Scheffler shot a 12-under 59 at The Northern Trust.
His round was the joint second-lowest in PGA Tour history and just the 12th sub-60 round in PGA Tour history. Another three weeks later, Scheffler won the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Austin, Texas. Scheffler defeated Kevin Kisner in the final match. With this win, Scheffler moved to world number one in the Official World Golf Ranking.
