Woods joins elite club of 75 PGA titles

Tiger Woods became only the second player to win 75 or more PGA titles by winning the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines on Monday (January 28). The World number 2, finished 14-under par to win the $6.1 million event by four shots. Woods broke the PGA record for the number of wins at a single course as he lifted his eighth title at the venue, with seven tournament triumphs added to the US Open crown he so memorably won in 2008. Combined with his seven wins apiece at both Firestone Country Club and Bay Hill Club and Lodge, 22 of Woods’ 75 career wins have now come at just three courses. Woods triumphed in a third different PGA Tour event for a seventh time, having already recorded seven wins apiece at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the Arnold Palmer Invitational. His 75th career victory on the US circuit put him seven behind the record 82 piled up by Sam Snead, the only golfer ahead of him in the all-time standings. Born on December 30, 1975 at Cypress, Woods turned professional in 1996 after playing 11 events as an amateur player. His first victory came in 1996 in Las Vegas Invitational. The victory at Masters in 1997 was his first major victory in his 10-year career. His 75th tile came in the 294th event overall and 283rd after he turned professional in 1996.
