Golf News Net: Tiger Woods' trophy case

Tiger Woods’ trophy case

Tiger Woods is the greatest golfer of this generation and in the conversation for being named the greatest golfer of all time.

Woods' accomplishments are incredible compared to his peers, only rivaled by the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Old and Young Tom Morris and Ben Hogan.

Sometimes, it's easy to forget just how much Woods has accomplished since turning pro in 1996 -- or even the astounding six-year run in USGA events before the "Hello, world" news conference at the Greater Milwaukee Open 17 years ago.

So, that said, this Golf News Net page is merely to summarize Woods' accomplishments as a reference point.

  • Masters: 1997 (record 12-shot margin), 2001, 2002, 2005

  • Open Championship: 2000, 2005, 2006
