Tiger Woods Resumes Domination of WGC Tournaments

By March 10, 2013

Follow me on:

When Tiger Woods won the WGC Cadillac Championship (then called the CA Championship) in 2007, it was his sixth win in the tournament's 8-year history to that point.

When he won the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in 2009, it was his 16th overall WGC victory, meaning Woods had won roughly half of all WGC tournaments played to that point.

It had been nearly four years since that last WGC victory for Woods, but he's now back in the win column with a victory on Sunday at the WGC Cadillac Championship.

It's his seventh win in the Cadillac, and it's the fourth tournament in which Woods has seven wins (Sam Snead holds the record for most wins in one tournament with eight wins in the Greater Greensboro Open).

And it's Woods 17th overall WGC victory. How dominant has Woods been in the World Golf Championships series? The golfer with the next-most WGC wins is Geoff Ogilvy, and he has three.

For some perspective, consider these points:
  • Tiger's 17 wins in WGC tournaments alone is the same number of wins as Luke Donald, Matt Kuchar, Justin Rose, Ian Poulter and Graeme McDowell have combined in all their PGA Tour events.
  • Tiger's 17 wins in WGC events alone are as many or more than than the PGA Tour career win totals of Curtis Strange, Jim Furyk, Mark O'Meara, Tom Weiskopf, Fred Couples and Paul Azinger, just to name a few.

For Woods, it's his second win of 2013, the fifth in his last 19 tournaments, and the 76th of his PGA Tour career. He's now six wins short of tying Snead's all-time record for career PGA Tour wins.
