The Statistics of Tiger Woods at Firestone

It is unprecedented how completely professional golfer Tiger Woods has dominated the World Series of Golf at Firestone. While he has done well at other tournaments, nothing compares to his crushing performances on the “monster” 7,139-yard South Course at Firestone in Akron, Ohio.

How dominant has Tiger been? With his eight-stroke win today, he has now won six times in eight appearances there. Compare that to other top golfers’ event dominance through history and you see how unlikely Woods win record is:

    The best part was the fan (who Rory Sabbattini wanted removed) who shouted at the tenth hole:
    “Hey Rory, still think Tiger’s beatable?”
    That cracked me up! Probably worth getting thrown out just to get that line in…

  2. Yeah, I loved that part too. Especially how Sabattini flipped and wanted the guy taken from the premises.
