This astonishing Tiger Woods stat sums up his greatness and perseverance since 2012

Published

There are countless achievements from Tiger Woods that will be talked about for years to come, and we can now add another to the list thanks to Brandel Chamblee.

The golf analyst took to Twitter on Monday, where he produced one of the most stunning Tiger Woods stats imagineable, which covers the tumultuous period of his career since 2012.

During this period, Woods reclaimed the number one ranking, endured 5 back surgeries, suffered from the chipping yips, an inability to practice, had a humiliating DUI and dropped to 1,199th in the Official World Golf Rankings before rising again.

Despite everything, as Chamblee posted on Monday, Woods has a better win % on Tour than the likes of Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka, with only Rory McIlroy having a marginally better win return since 2012.

There were some sceptics that the high win % was down to Tiger appearing so sparingly over the past few years. However, golf fans were quick to correctly point out that the 45-year-old continuously appears at the biggest events with the strongest fields, which makes the 11.7 win % over that period even more impressive.

Never, ever, write off Tiger.

Justin Rose hits epic shank during round one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational

Published

Hitting a shank is one of the more mortifying moments a golfer can have, and while it may be a common feature in a lot of player’s weekend rounds, it’s not often you get to see one from a pro – but day one at Bay Hill was different.

Justin Rose was the man in question who hit the shank and did so early on day one when faced with a long bunker shot.

Thank’s to PGA Tour Live, viewers tuning into action early on Thursday got to see the shank in all it’s glory, and the epic sound of the ball hitting the hosel is not to be missed.

Rose made bogey on the hole but put the shank behind him and stiffed it from a greenside bunker just a couple of holes later.

Billy Horschel snaps back at heckler at Bay Hill

Published

on

Fans are back this week at Bay Hill, and with it, the odd comment from those outside the ropes to those inside.

On day one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Billy Horschel was the target of a fan who decided that he’d give his expert opinion to the 5-time winner on the PGA Tour, telling him that he had read a putt badly.

Horschel took his time after the shout from the fan but then fired back at him, saying: “There’s a reason why I’m on that side of the ropes, and you’re on that side. I think my talent level is just a touch better.” 

Check out the incident in the video below.

It isn’t the first time the 34-year-old has put a fan in their place at an event either, as one person found out a couple of year’s ago at the Zurich Classic.

Hop on to social media during a live sporting event, and emotions are spilling over, but when it comes to golf, the prominent feeling is often anger and frustration.

That is down to gambling, and according to a new study from OnlineGambling.Ca, golf supporters are the angriest on social media, with 42% of all tweets about the sport being classified as an angry comment.

The study also found that cricket and ice hockey fans show the most love for their team, with 38% of their social media posts being filled with love. Basketball fans seem to be the saddest with their teams’ results, with 38% of reactions being unhappy.

If you have ever gambled on golf or been on social media during an event, the results are probably less surprising to those that haven’t!
