It’s Tiger Woods’ 46th birthday, and to celebrate, Justin Ray, one of the best golf statisticians in the game, put together a list of stats Woods has compiled throughout his amazing career. Fair warning, they’re ridiculous — in the best way possible.
Everyone knows he’s an 82-time PGA Tour winner and a 15-time major champion. But Ray’s numbers dive a bit deeper into Woods’ career, and how truly, ridiculously good the man was (and maybe still is) at golf.
A sure personal favorite of any golf fan who takes the time to read through the entire Twitter feed, is this one.
Best score to par in majors, 1997-2009 (min. 70 rounds)
Tiger Woods, -134
Phil Mickelson, +99
Ernie Els, +118
Phil was the only player within 250 strokes of Woods.

It’s borderline impossible to comprehend how good that is.
