In Honor of the Tiger Run
Since Tiger Woods streak of five straight PGA Tour wins is finally dead to us, I thought it would be worth throwing out a couple of insane numbers from those five tourneys.
First, you have to note that all the numbers, except money, are for just four tournaments, since one was the match-play with no official scores. Also, note that we're not including the 22-under performance, including a second round 62, that Tiger posted at the Target World Challenge. Ok, got it, lets go.
-74 - Amount of strokes under par El Tigre was in the four stroke play events he won. Yeah, 74-under, not a typo.
2 out of 16 - rounds in the 70s Tiger shot over the stretch.
10 out of 16 - rounds Tiger shot 66 or lower.
2 - Rounds of 63 Tiger shot over the stretch.
5,850,000 - Amount Tiger won over the five tournament stretch.
So, that is fairly impressive. Also, Tiger has almost twice as many FedEx Cup points as second place, Phil Mickelson, in three less tournaments. Nice swing, Tiger.
