Tiger Woods' scoring averages by year are scary, especially THAT season in 2000

It is difficult to believe it is more than 20 years since Tiger Woods' epic 2000 season. 

That year Woods really was sensational as he claimed nine victories from 20 starts, along with 17 top-10s. 

To put his dominance into perspective, six of those events were won back-to-back.

And he won the U.S. Open by 15 strokes over Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez and South Africa's Ernie Els.

To this day, it remains the biggest margin of victory in a major championship.

It was vintage Woods and if only we had known we were in the good old days before we had actually left them. 

Golf nerds absolutely love taking a look into that season and seeing how it stacks up in his career as a whole. 

An interesting image began circulating on Twitter recently taking a look at Woods' scoring average from 1996 to 2020. 

Stats guru Lou Stagner broke it down:

What stands out is that Woods absolutely obliterated the par 5s and was insanely consistent elsewhere. 

The 2000 season, of course, shows Woods with an average of 2.91 strokes on par-3s, 3.91 on par-4s and 4.45 on par-5s. 

What?! 

How can someone have an average score on a par-5 that is closer to an eagle than a bogey, over 25 years?

Utter madness.
