Tiger Woods will (finally) tee it up at a major this week at the British Open after an 11-month absence from major championship golf. 

As the months (and years) roll on, though, the more time passes between his last major (the 2008 US Open) and his next one, if he ever wins another one.

The chart below is a pretty stunning look at how many days elapsed between each of his 14 majors. The craziest part? Five times he hasn't let 100 or more days pass between majors. That's spectacular.

A lot has happened since he last won one, by the way. Mostly, parity.

So Woods will look to reassert his dominance at Hoylake just as he did back in 2006 but before we begin with that on Thursday here's a look at his last 14 and how much time he's gone between wins.

MajorDays held until next major ...Analysis

854 The first one ... crazy to think he didn't win another for two years.

1999 PGA

308 The Sergio one; that sure feels like forever ago.

2000 British Open

28 35 days later he won the British Open.

2002 US Open

1,029 The one at Bethpage Black.

2005 Masters

2005 British Open

371 The fourth time he waited fewer than 100 days to win another major.

2006 British Open

28 DiMarco finished second in this one, too.
