Anthony Kim Can't Figure Out How Many Majors Tiger Has Won, Thinks Eight
I wrote this up over at the FanHouse, but I thought it was worth pointing out over here as well.
Anthony Kim, next in line to be Mr. Tiger Woods, thought Tiger had only won eight majors instead of 14.
That got me thinking -- why don't we go over the MEMORABLE majors Tiger has won, and see if we can get to eight.
1997 Masters -- Tiger, at age 8, wins the Masters by like 47 shots.
1999 PGA Championship -- Tiger, meet Sergio. The two went fisticuffs on the field, and Tiger eventually pulled it out to remind us he was badass.
The Tiger Slam -- That is four more.
The Dad British Open -- Tiger wins and breaks down in his caddies arms, because it was his first major after his father had passed.
One Leg U.S. Open -- Not sure if you remember this, but in 2008 Tiger took down Rocco Mediate on one leg. I heard it got good ratings.
There you go. That is eight. Now, can ANY golf fan name some of the others he won? Like the Jack Nicklaus final British Open? Or the Dimarco Masters chip-in?
Okay, just wanted to show how easy it was to get more than eight. Good job team. High fives all around.
