PGA: Tiger Woods’ Career Masters Record and Results

Tiger Woods is Looking to Win His Fifth Masters in 2013 and His First Since 2005

Tiger Woods is Looking to Win His Fifth Masters in 2013 and His First Since 2005

Tiger Woods is making his 19th professional appearance at the Masters in 2013. Time flies.

For the first time in a while, he is the favorite to win.

Per the Wall Street Journal, “just in time for the Masters Tournament, golf superstar Tiger Woods is back at the top of the sport’s rankings.”

The BBC asks “is Tiger Woods ready to reign again?”

And Yahoo tells us “the final Masters odds have Tiger Woods well ahead of the rest of the field.”

Boy, it sounds like the guy hasn’t even played golf for a while. But if you look at Woods’ career Masters record, you can see, despite all the controversy and questions surrounding him and his game, that in 2010 and 2011 he finished fourth both times (-11 and then -10).

The bar is understandably very high for Tiger, one of the greatest to ever play the game of golf. If anyone else put up those scores in recent years, fan and media perspective would be the complete opposite. That golfer might be considered “on the cusp” of greatness.

Tiger missed only one cut of the 18 Masters he has played, winning four green jackets, finishing second twice and in the top five 10! times. Simply incredible.

LIST UPDATED Through the 2014 Masters. Tiger was a scratch after recent back surgery; it’s the first time he missed the Masters in 20 years.
