Tiger Woods turns 38
The world's top golfer grows another year older.
Birthdays are a great time for celebration, reflection, and, if you're Tiger Woods, determining if you're going to reach the elusive 19 major championship victories.
Since he's probably not going to do that, it's best that we check that out for him.
Back in November, Woods said this about matching Jack Nicklaus' mark of 18 majors: "It takes a career. It takes a long time to win a lot of major championships. Since 2008 I've been there with a chance to win half of them."
He's right. Since '09, Woods has nine top-10 finishes in 18 appearances in majors, including blowing a two-stroke 54-hole lead in the 2009 PGA Championship.
As of now, Woods has 14 majors, but a ton of golf left. However, as The Golf Channel's Jason Sobel points out, only two players have won four or more majors after their 38 birthday: Nicklaus, who won four; and Ben Hogan, who won five.
And, for the sake of comparison, 43-year-old Phil Mickelson has just five career majors.
Of course, it's unwise to expect the ordinary from Tiger Woods, though it must be noted, he's slowly running out of time.
