The Hero World Challenge and the PNC Championship (alongside son Charlie) in December. Then, perhaps, the Genesis Invitational. This could be Tiger Woods’ schedule before The Masters, scheduled for April 2023 in Augusta, Georgia (USA). This was revealed by the historic caddy of the Californian, Joe LaCava. “Before his return to Magnolia Lane, I think Tiger will be able to play three to four tournaments. We will train and prepare for 2023 together. He is working hard to get stronger and improve physically as well as on the short game.”
Tiger Woods, situation
Meanwhile, The Big Cat, with only three appearances in 2022 (The Masters, PGA Championship and The Open), slipped out of the top 1,000 in the world ranking. But his main goal for this year was to return to the green after the serious car accident that put his career at risk.
Tiger Woods holds an incredible 54 wins and only 4 defeats in the tournaments in which he was leading after three laps, a record that fueled the myth of the unbeatable “Sunday Tiger Woods”, invariably dressed in a red t-shirt and black trousers. Sunday of the final lap (his mother handed down this little superstition to him since he was a child). He holds the record for fewer strokes in all 4 Major Tournaments, together with Jack Nicklaus he is the only player to have won the “Career Grand Slam” three times, and the only golfer in history to have won more than a Major Tournament for 2 consecutive years (2005-2006)
Woods won the Masters in 1997 at 21 years and 3 months making him the youngest winner in the history of the tournament (a record now belonging to Jordan Spieth). He has won all 4 Majors consecutively: from the U.S. 2000 Open to 2001 Masters; this feat was called “Tiger Slam”, and not “Grand Slam” because it was not completed in the same calendar year. However, he remains the only golfer in the history of the sport to have accomplished this feat.
He has always declared that he wants to beat the record for Majors won, belonging to Jack Nicklaus (18), and for now he is at 15, having won the Masters of 2019 as his last title.
