It was the largest endorsing deal ever signed by an athlete at that time.[151] .Woods' endorsement has been credited in playing a significant role in taking the Nike Golf brand from a "start-up" golf company earlier in the past decade, to becoming the leading golf apparel company in the world, and a major player in the equipment and golf ball market.^ Woods had seen playing partner Jim Furyk cut his six-shot overnight lead to two at the turn, but produced an outstanding back nine when it mattered.

Cut streak

.In both Byron Nelson's and Woods's eras, "making the cut" has been defined as receiving a paycheck.^ Woods now lies joint fifth with Byron Nelson (52) in the all-time standings for PGA Tour victories.

.However, in Nelson's day, only players who placed in the top 20 (sometimes as few as 15)[179] in an event won a paycheck, whereas in Woods's day only players who reach a low enough score (top 70 and ties for most events) within the first 36 holes win a paycheck.^ Three top 15 players = championship.

^ Third place at Warwick Hills went to another American, Joe Durant, who shot a 67 to finish on 20-under par.

[180] .Several golf analysts argue that Woods did not actually surpass Nelson's consecutive cuts mark, reasoning that 31 of the tournaments in which Woods competed were "no-cut" events, meaning all the players in the field were guaranteed to compete throughout the entire event regardless of their scores through 36 holes (and hence all "made the cut," meaning that they all received a paycheck).^ They all have different stories and reasons.

These analysts argue that this would leave Woods's final consecutive cuts made at 111, and Nelson's at 113.[181]
.However, at least ten of the tournaments in which Nelson played did not have modern-day cuts; that is, all of the players in these events were guaranteed to compete past 36 holes.^ He did, however, lose in the first round of the World Match Play, an event not sanctioned by the PGA Tour, to fellow American Shaun Micheel.

^ It is Woods's fifth career win at Bay Hill and means he is the first player in PGA Tour history to win four tournaments at least five times.

^ "I've played a lot with Tiger (in all tournaments) and it's very enjoyable.

.The Masters, for example, did not institute a 36-hole cut until 1957 (which was well after Nelson retired), the PGA Championship was match play until 1958, and it is unclear whether or not three other events in which Nelson competed had 36-hole cuts.^ His next PGA Tour event will be either the Nissan Open in Los Angeles from 15 February or the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in Tucson, Arizona from 21 February.

.This effect was larger when he was on winning streaks and disappeared during his well-publicized slump in 2003–04. Brown explains the results by noting that competitors of similar skill can hope to win by increasing their level of effort, but that, when facing a "superstar" competitor, extra exertion does not significantly raise one's level of winning while increasing risk of injury or exhaustion, leading to reduced effort.^ Rome dubbed Iafrate's take as "awesome" after it ended, and only one competitor following that take - 1998 winner Stevie Carbone from LMU - attempted to critique Iafrate's efforts.

^ It is Woods's fifth career win at Bay Hill and means he is the first player in PGA Tour history to win four tournaments at least five times.

.In his first Ryder Cup in 1997, he earned only 1½ points competing in every match and partnering mostly with Mark O'Meara.^ The former Ryder Cup captain finished on five under to earn a share of 10th place at the Quail Hollow Country Club in Charlotte.

^ Harrington admitted Europe's Ryder Cup triumph at the weekend, when he won only half a point from five matches, had left him drained.

Costantino Rocca defeated Woods in his singles match.[189] In 1999, he earned 2 points over every match with a variety of partners.[190] .In 2002, he lost both Friday matches,[191] but, partnered with Davis Love III for both of Saturday's matches, won two points for the Americans, and was slated to anchor the Americans for the singles matches, both squads going into Sunday with 8 points.^ Another leading light not staying for the weekend is Davis Love III, who won the USPGA at this course in 1997.

^ A solid 69 on Saturday gave Woods a three-shot cushion over Stephen Ames going into Sunday's final round but the Canadian quickly melted away in the heat to end on two over after a 76.

^ The American shot a final-round 67 on Sunday, to finish two clear of the field at Hoylake, in his first major win since the death of his father in May.

[192] However, after the Europeans took an early lead, his match with Jesper Parnevik was rendered unimportant and they halved the match.[193] .In 2004, he was paired with Phil Mickelson on Friday but lost both matches,[194] and only earned one point on Saturday.^ World number three Phil Mickelson carded 17 pars and one birdie in a closing 69 for six over as he struggles back from a wrist injury.

^ Of his winning putt, Woods said: "It's just like when I beat Phil Mickelson here a few years ago, only this time it was a bit deeper in the green.

^ Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson could not be separated after 18 holes at the USPGA, as both carded three-under 69s.

^ Woods began day two three shots adrift of overnight leader Jim Furyk but ended it two ahead of his fellow American.

^ The event is supposed to be contested by the four Major winners, but Woods won two of them (Open and USPGA) while Masters champion Phil Mickelson opted not to play.

[196] .Woods won his singles match, one of only three Americans to do so that day.^ World number one Tiger Woods won his 12th major championship with a superb five-stroke victory at Medinah.

^ Woods, who began the day trailing Steve Stricker and Aaron Baddeley by a single shot, equalled the course record.

^ World number one Woods won six consecutive tournaments in 1999-2000.

Career achievements

.Woods has won 71 official PGA Tour events including 14 majors.^ Woods' last win of 2006, the non-tour Target World Challenge, came after second-place finishes in two other non-tour events in China and Japan.

^ He did, however, lose in the first round of the World Match Play, an event not sanctioned by the PGA Tour, to fellow American Shaun Micheel.

^ The 12-time major winner clinched his 58th PGA Tour title and fourth this season.

.He is 14–1 when going into the final round of a major with at least a share of the lead.^ Last year's winner Singh eventually had to settle for a share of third place with Americans Cliff Kresge and O'Hair after a final round 69.

^ A solid 69 on Saturday gave Woods a three-shot cushion over Stephen Ames going into Sunday's final round but the Canadian quickly melted away in the heat to end on two over after a 76.

^ At the Wachovia Championship in May, he talked up his chances after holding a one-shot lead over Woods going into the final round but dropped back into a tie for third as Woods triumphed.

He has been heralded as "the greatest closer in history" by multiple golf experts.[198][199][200] .He owns the lowest career scoring average and the most career earnings of any player in PGA Tour history.^ It is Woods's fifth career win at Bay Hill and means he is the first player in PGA Tour history to win four tournaments at least five times.

^ Woods is now out on his own in fifth in the all-time standings for PGA Tour victories with 53.

^ His career low in any PGA Tour event is a 61, achieved three times, most recently at the 2005 Buick Open.

He has spent the most consecutive and cumulative weeks atop the world rankings. .He is one of five players (along with Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, and Jack Nicklaus) to have won all four professional major championships in his career, known as the Career Grand Slam, and was the youngest to do so.^ Woods became the 23rd player to shoot a 63 in one of the four major championships.

Personal life

Marriage

In November 2003, Woods became engaged to Elin Nordegren, a former Swedish model and daughter of former minister of migration Barbro Holmberg and radio journalist Thomas Nordegren.[205] They were introduced during The Open Championship in 2001 by Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik, who had employed her as an au pair. They married on October 5, 2004 at the Sandy Lane resort on the Caribbean island of Barbados and live at Isleworth, a community in Windermere, a suburb of Orlando, Florida. They also have homes in Jackson, Wyoming, California, and Sweden. In January 2006, they purchased a $39 million residential property in Jupiter Island, Florida, intending to make it their primary residence.[206] Jupiter Island residents include fellow golfers Gary Player, Greg Norman, and Nick Price, as well as singers Celine Dion and Alan Jackson. In 2007, a guest house owned by Woods on the Jupiter Island estate was destroyed in a fire caused by lightning.[207]
Early in the morning of June 18, 2007, Elin gave birth to the couple's first child, a daughter, Sam Alexis Woods, in Orlando.[208] The birth occurred just one day after Woods finished tied for second in the 2007 U.S. Open.[209] .Woods chose to name his daughter Sam because his father said that Woods looked more like a Sam.^ He dotes on his mom, but dishonors his father because the only time he's around black people is when he's looking for a photo opt to improve his image.
