How many majors is Tiger behind Jack?

A Golfer Attempting to Break Jack Nicklaus' Record Tiger Woods is running out of time to break a record that appeared unbreakable not long ago. With 15 major championship titles, the golfer is still three wins short of the all-time record.

In 2004, Tiger Woods won his 14th major title at the Masters Tournament. He broke Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 major championships. Before his victory at the Masters, Woods had lost two straight major finals -- the 2000 U.S. Open and the 2001 PGA Championship. He also failed to win any major championship before breaking the record.

Tiger Woods has been named the greatest golfer of all time by several publications including Golf Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and USA Today. His achievements on the golf course have been matched only by his fame and fortune outside the sport - he is considered one of the most successful athletes in history. His career earnings exceed $80 million while he's active in the game.

Woods first came to national attention as a 16-year-old prodigy when he won the 1997 U.S. Amateur Championship. The following year, he became the first player to win the Grand Slam by defeating John Millsen in the final of the 1998 PGA Championship. At the end of 1999, Woods ended his losing streak at the Masters Tournament by capturing his first green jacket.

Tiger Woods has won 15 major championships in his career and is three majors shy from tying Jack Nicklaus' all-time record. In 2019, Woods ended an 11-year major winless run by winning the Masters for the fifth time. He also returned from spinal fusion surgery with more wins than any other player in golf history.

Woods first won the Masters in 1997 at the age of 24. He went on to win the next five years in a row, a feat never before or since repeated. His other victories include the PGA Championship (2000), U.S. Open (2001), British Open (2005), and Open Championship (2010).

In addition to being one of the most successful players in golf history, Woods has been involved in several controversies throughout his career. Some of the most talked about incidents involving Woods include him hitting himself with his own club, getting into multiple fights on the course, and obscenity charges for making sexual gestures with his arms and legs while videotaped by photographers on the course.

Woods has always apologized for his actions and claimed he needed help with substance abuse issues. He has gone through rehab twice before successfully completing a program in 2015 to regain his status as a member of the LPGA Tour.

How many times was Tiger Woods runner-up in the majors?

Tiger seemed unbeatable for years, yet seven players denied him seven titles. He finally won his first Masters in Augusta in April 2005, at the age of 24. Since then, he has gone on to win six more Masters, so he has now matched Jack Nicklaus's record of nine major championships.

Woods's success can be attributed to his ability to reinvent himself time and time again. His career began inauspiciously when he had an affair with a waitress and hired a publicist to cover it up. This caused him to lose his wife and kids. But instead of letting this get him down, he simply shifted his attention to golf. Over the next decade, he went on to become one of the greatest players of all time. During this period, he also suffered some serious injuries that kept him out of the game for long stretches of time.

In 2004, at the age of 25, Woods returned from a back injury to win the U.S. Open by eight strokes. This is the most convincing victory I have seen over the course of my career. It was as if he were playing against himself. From this point on, there was no stopping him.
