Speaking of that year, the Titleist golf ball Woods used during the 1996 Milwaukee Open has recently gone up for auction

The starting bid was $22,000... 

But back to our topic and the stats. This from Data Golf really does show that during Woods' prime years he was just so far above the rest of his peers. 

That's clearly an obvious statement to make. But still. 

Take a look at the graphs below that were re-posted by No Laying Up. 

The graph begins with LIV Golf commissioner Greg Norman - leading on 2.6. Then Woods just flies up the chart. 

You can see that Woods spent more than a decade above 2.6 strokes gained. 

And it wasn't like he was in bad company. You can see names such as Ernie Els, Colin Montgomerie and Phil Mickelson lagging behind.

Woods' peak came in the 2000 when he gained nearly four strokes per round during his Tiger Slam year. 


When will Tiger Woods play golf again?

It could be a busy December for Woods. 

Woods, 46, has confirmed that he will be playing in the 2022 Hero World Championship on the PGA Tour

The 15-time major champion also said that Tommy Fleetwood and Kevin Kisner will also be in field. 

Woods is also likely to play in the PNC Championship with his son Charlie Woods too.
