With win at PGA Championship, Tiger Woods can tie record
Tiger Woods has won four PGA Championships in his career, he can tie the record of five at Oak Hill with the man who got his fifth there.
Tiger Woods holds many records and stands alone in second place on the all-time majors list with 14 but did you know he hasn't won the most times at any of the four majors? He's not even tied for any of them. Here's a look at the top three champions at all four majors (including Woods' place):
1. Jack Nicklaus -- 6
T2. Tiger Woods -- 4
T2. Arnold Palmer -- 4
T1. Walter Hagen -- 5
T1. Jack Nicklaus -- 5
3. Tiger Woods -- 4
Woods' four wins came at Medinah (1999 by one over Sergio Garica), Valhalla (2000 in a playoff over Bob May), Medinah again (2005 by five over Shaun Micheel), and Southern Hills (2006 by two over Woody Austin).
With a win this week Woods could tie a major record for the first time ever with Hagen and Nicklaus. It would be fitting if Woods could get No. 5 at Oak Hill since Nicklaus got his fifth in 1980 at this very course.
