Tiger Woods almost won for the 80th time in his PGA Tour career at the Valspar Championship in March, and then he contended at the Memorial Tournament, and then he was high up on the leaderboard late in the day on Sunday at the Quicken Loans National. However, this year, Woods was never in a position to win the Masters, and he missed the cut at the US Open in Juen.
While Woods' latest comeback now appears to clearly portend an inevitable win, Tiger Woods still hasn't won a major in a long, long time. In fact, the last time Tiger Woods won a major was at the 2008 US Open, defeating Rocco Mediate on the 19th hole of a playoff, in sudden death, at Torrey Pines' South Course near San Diego.
Tiger Woods' last PGA Tour win was in the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Woods won by seven shots on Aug. 4, 2013, over Keegan Bradley.
With the US Open coming and going in June at Shinnecock Hills, more than a decade has now passed since Tiger Woods won his last major championship. In the history of golf, no golfer has gone more than 11 years in between major wins, with four golfers going 11 years between their major victories. However, none of those players won majors at quite the same clip as Tiger Woods.
So, if Tiger Woods is to win another major championship and add to his tally, he most likely has to win a major in 2018 or 2019, or he'll find himself well beyond history in terms of winning major championships at an advanced age.
