Tiger Woods' Awesome 2019 in Review

When Tiger Woods stunned the golfing world by taking last year's season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club, it was proof to us all that there was life in the GOAT yet. It was scarcely believable to many of us but how did he follow up in 2019?

Well, while this golfing year has had its fair share of twists and turns, here at Hole19 HQ, we've pulled together a few of the memorable Tiger Woods moments to help you reminisce a little.

Fifth Green Jacket

What happened back in April at Augusta National will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history.

A full 3,954 days since his last major triumph, Tiger wowed the watching world in capturing a glorious fifth Green Jacket and suddenly golf was on the front pages and heading every news bulletin.

At Hole19 HQ, we completely lost it!!

It was now no longer a case of whether the great man would win another major,  all the talk returned to how many more he could capture and how quickly he can usurp Jack Nicklaus' record haul of 18.

The remaining majors

When Tiger returned to the golfing fold, he made it clear that he had his sights set firmly on winning as many more majors as his body would allow.

The other three majors of 2019 came and went without any real concerted challenge from the newly-crowned Masters champ. A T-21 at Pebble Beach's hosting of this year's U.S. Open was sandwiched between two missed cuts at both Bethpage Black and Royal Portrush.

How many more 'big ones' will Tiger win? We should probably remember that there is currently a highly-competitive golfing landscape at present and the likes of Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy etc will provide stern opposition for the next few years.

He managed to give us plenty of other memorable major moments - like this eagle on the 4th hole of his first round at Bethpage...

Record equalling 82nd PGA Tour win

When the regular 2018/19 PGA Tour season ended many of us would have been forgiven for thinking that Tiger's winning exploits would, at best, recommence next year. Sam Snead's 82 win record was safe for another few months at least, it seemed.

Then the ' Asian Swing' started in October and, after an entertaining skins match with Rory McIlroy, Jason Day and Hideki Matsuyama, Tiger teed it up at the Zozo Championship.

He put himself in great shape with an awesome 64 on Thursday and never looked back from there, ultimately prevailing by three shots over Matsuyama - the home favourite. Check out the highlights of the flawless opening round below...

Back in the world's top ten

Three wins in little over a year, and a few other solid performances, have all conributed to Tiger's current seventh-place position in the Official World Golf Rankings.

By the time he had donned his fifth Green Jacket, Tiger had risen from his December 2017 low of 1,119 by a full 1,193 spots and into sixth place. He would then slip down to eighth position by the end of the BMW Championship and before his record-equalling win in Japan.  

Some stunning shots

This wouldn't be a Tiger Woods review without a highlights reel containing a few of his best shots:

Remember this stroke of genius from the WGC-Mexico?...

And this recovery from a bush at the WGC-Dell Match Play...

But this has to be our favourite from 2019 - the one that saw him crowned Masters champ once again...

Still to come

In the next few weeks, Tiger will captain the U.S. team at the Presidents Cup as they tussle with an Ernie Els-led International side at Royal Melbourne GC.

With a strong initial 8 golfers making up the first two-thirds of his side (including the likes of Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele), Tiger then set to work choosing his four Captain's picks.

And, of course, he saved the final pick for himself!!
