    Woods is no stranger to the perfect greens of Augusta National®. In fact, he has won four tournaments in 1997, 2001, 2002, and 2005. There are only two players in the history of golf who have matched or surpassed his record, Arnold Palmer who has also won 4 tournaments and Jack Nicklaus who holds the top spot on the board by winning 6 tournaments.

    1. The Masters Tournament® 1997

    During this year at Augusta National®, Tiger Woods broke many records both personally and for the tournament. At the age of just 21, he became the youngest and the first non-white player to win the tournament. This was the first major championship Woods won and although he struggled on the front nine of the first round, he clinched the tournament by a hefty 12 stroke lead over runner-up Tom Kite.

    This victory set television rating records with the final broadcast on Sunday reaching 44 million viewers in the United States.

    2. The Masters Tournament® 2001

    This championship marked the completion of the “Tiger Slam,” which is Tiger Woods’ version of a career grand slam, this is when a player holds all four major titles, the U.S. Open, Open Championship, the PGA Championship and The Masters®. Marking his second Masters win and sixth major championship he was the first player to be awarded a seven-figure winner’s share. Woods won this tournament just two strokes ahead of runner-up David Duval.

    3. The Masters Tournament® 2002

    Back-to-back! Despite the course being lengthened by 285 yards, Tiger Woods came back to win his third Masters Tournament®, becoming the third player in history to obtain three titles. Woods completed the 66th Masters Tournament® 12-under, 3 strokes ahead of runner-up Retief Goosen.

    4. The Masters Tournament® 2005

    At the age of 29, Tiger Woods won his fourth Masters Tournament®. This one did not come as easy as the other three as he participated in a playoff on the first hole with Chris DiMarco. Rain also contributed to the difficulty during this particular Masters Tournament® and delayed much of the play, but this did not stop Woods from clinching his fourteenth major championship title.
