Today in Sports History: September 4

In 2006, American professional golfer, Tiger Woods, played the lowest final round of his career. He golfed 8-under 63 in the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Massachusetts. This was his 5th straight time and his 7th time in the PGA Tour season that he won. 

Woods turned professional in 1996 and since then has had 82 PGA Tour victories, 12 International victories, and 14 additional victories. He has won 15 majors thus far including five Masters Tournaments, four PGA Championships, three U.S. Open Championships, and three British Open Championships. In 2001, he was the only golfer to win all four major championships at the same time. 

His playoff record for the PGA Tour is 11 wins and one loss. He has also been a 9-time team member of the Presidents Cup and was the 2019 Presidents Cup Captain. He has also been an 8-time member of the Ryder Cup and a 3-time team member of the U.S. World Cup Team.

In 1996, Woods was awarded the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year, and the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. He was also awarded the Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year in 1999, 2000, and 2006, and again the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year in 2000. 

In 2019, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from former President Donal Trump honoring him with the highest honor a civilian may have in the United States. 

Recently in 2022, Woods was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame as a part of the Class of 2022 for his incredible career and outstanding accomplishments. 

Woods played in the 2022 U.S. Masters Tournament and placed in 47th place. He withdrew from the PGA Championship Tournament and didn’t make the cut in The Open tournament.

He recently announced a new partnership with professional golfer, Rory McIlroy, to launch a technology-infused golf league virtually online.
