The Best 9 Shots that make Tiger Woods Legend

  • Published: 30 July 2018
  • This video contains the most incredible 9 shots in Tiger Woods career, that always remind us about a living legend
    1. 1996 Milwaukee Open
    In Tiger’s first tournament as a pro, a 20-year-old Woods hit a 202-yard 6-iron on the 14th hole at Brown Deer Park Golf Course. It went in for an ace and introduced us to the Tiger Fist Pump. This was Woods’ "hello, world" moment.
    2. 2002 PGA Championship
    Tiger found the fairway bunker on No. 18 at Hazeltine and was facing a downhill lie with a tree in front of him and 210 yards to the hole. So what did he do? He hooked a 3-iron around the tree, carried it to the green and landed it eight feet from the hole (and then made that putt for birdie). The lie, the distance, the club, the TREE — it’s an impossible shot. Except for 2002 Tiger.
    3. 2000 PGA Championship
    Locked in playoff with Bob May at the 2000 PGA at Valhalla, Tiger drained a 20-foot birdie on the first of three playoff holes en route to winning the major. We remember it, of course, because of Tiger’s animated finger-point as he followed the birdie into the hole. Look at this guy — is there any chance he’s not beating Bob May? It’s been a long time since Tiger moved around a course with such conviction.
    4. 2001 Players Championship
    On the famous No. 17 island green at TPC Sawgrass, Tiger faced a 60-foot downhill breaker that any player in the world would be happy to simply two-putt. But Tiger pulled off one of his best putts ever (based on sheer difficulty) and drained it. This is pure vintage Tiger.
    5. 1997 Phoenix Open
    Young Tiger was just vicious. On the famous 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale, Tiger gave the people what they wanted — what they needed, perhaps –and knocked in a hole-in-one. Enjoy this Tiger fist pump and reminisce.
    6. 2008 U.S. Open
    Playing on a wrecked knee and fractured tibia — read those words again — in the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, Tiger produced one of his most memorable moments ever. On No. 17 in Round 3, Tiger, facing an awkward lie in the greenside rough, hit a chip that bounced once and dunked in, leaving Tiger scratching his head and breaking into a laugh. He’d get into an 18-hole Monday playoff with Rocco Mediate and win on that broken leg, which is probably one of the best wins of all-time. I happened to be on a Greek island on a family vacation and therefore unable to watch it live, making me the first person in the world to be upset about being on a Greek island.
    7. 2012 Memorial Tournament
    Hey –€“ a relatively recent Tiger moment! On No. 16 at Muirfield Village — the home of Jack Nicklaus — Tiger was buried in the rough and 50 feet away from the pin. His chip would be rolling downhill towards water, so Woods decided to take a big swing and play a flop shot, hopefully taking the water out of the play.
    8. 2000 Bell Canadian Open
    Only Tiger enthusiasts will remember this shot, but it’s one Woods has called probably the best of his career. On the 18th hole at Glen Abbey, Tiger hit his drive into a fairway bunker and was looking at 213 yards over water for his second shot on a par 5. Most would probably lay up and take the water out of play, but Tiger pulled a 6-iron — a 213-yard 6-iron out of a bunker! — and smoked it over the water and into the back of the green. The degree of difficulty here is amazing.
    9. 2005 Masters
    Ah, yes. The chip on No. 16 at Augusta National. It’s hard to believe that was 10 years ago, but it was. Everything displayed here — the talent, risk, guts, drama and outcome — is Tiger Woods’ career rolled into one incredible shot. It’s why we’ve watched over the years and why we’re hoping Tiger still has something amazing left.

        How did you choose 9? Literally could have had 18 hell 36. You know what 72 if we going to go crazy.

          The chip at 16 will always be the signature shot of Tiger’s career just like Jacks 1 iron at 17 at Pebble in ‘72 will always be regarded as his career signature shot.

                              There ae sporting moments that I can watch over and over and still get goosebumps. The shot at the 2005 Masters falls into that category.

                                Watch at precisely 9:10, the shot of his face. You see his lips moving - he's doing some calculations, math whatever. But this to me is what you tell your kid "Son, if this ever happens, ask the official how many strokes to just pick up and take a drop. It's an impossible shot. Well almost. Remember I was telling you about that one guy who made a career out of impossible shots........?"

                                      They reverse the tape on some videos for some reason. I wouldnt put it past tiger to be able to convert on occasion.

                                    The last shot was absolutely incredible, he reads the green so well, it’s like everyone is playing real golf and he plays video game mode golf.

                                          Most players can probably hit 1-2 of these shots in their entire career. The Black Jesus hits 9.

                                            The putt on the 72nd hole at Torrey Pines US Open was FAR more tougher, crucial and clutch than the chip-in in round 3. C’mon man know your golf matrix prioritizing better than that.

                                              I was there that day at the 18th hole and that should be in Number ONE as maybe the greatest single "Pressure" shots Tiger ever made in a Major.

                                            I wouldn’t go so far as to say that the chip-in in the 2008 U.S. Open is one of his best shots. He nuked it and got lucky—hence the shit-eating grin on his face.

                                            Having said that, the fact that he won that tournament by playing 91 holes with a torn ACL is insane. Especially when you consider how many fairways he missed and how thick that rough was. Only Tiger could pull that off.

                                              John Alexander - Without a doubt—Tiger is a freak of nature. I actually wept tears of joy when he overcame his demons to win his fifth green jacket earlier this year. He’s a big reason for why I’m in the golf business, as he was the one who first got me into golf when I was a teenager.

                                            That chip in was great but the putt to force the playoff in 08 was amazing. On a broken leg man. Whew 🐅=🐐

                                                6:16 the difficulty factor in this shot was the highest, I think. Notice how he reads it as better for a lefty swing, so grabs his lefty club and does it Michelson style.

                                                          I think it was actually Steve Williams that was the poor high-fiver. Tiger's more of a fist-pound guy, anyway.

                                                        Well, this video was posted 10 months ago, so the hopes of the creator of the video have been realized. Tiger has since won another master's, he needs 4 more majors to beat Nicklaus for outright most majors won in history, 3 to tie Jack. Bobby has the record for most championship wins and Tiger's right there with Bobby too. I think we're gonna see it 🙂

                                                          You could take Tiger’s 3rd round at the 2008 us open and make a great highlight video out of that alone.

Obviously takes SOME amount of skill for us to do, but this is Tiger's version of "Woops, pulled it but that'll work." haha. So damn happy for golf that he won.
