Tiger Woods

CBS Sports: Tiger Woods’ PGA Tour winning percentage is still an absurd statistic:

So that is something. Tiger’s numbers are just preposterous. If he played as much as Davis Love III, he would presumably have 175 career wins. Of course part of this is staying healthy, which Love has done and Tiger hasn’t. Also, there is no way Tiger could have kept up the intensity with which he played for 700 events, which is part of what made him who he was.

Here are the numbers (my emphasis):

  • Tiger Woods: 79 wins in 324 events 24.2 percent
  • Phil Mickelson: 42 wins in 542 events 7.75 percent
  • Vijay Singh: 34 wins in 584 events 5.82 percent
  • Davis Love III: 21 wins in 733 events 2.86 percent
  • Ernie Els: 19 wins in 420 events 4.52 percent
  • Jim Furyk: 17 wins in 551 events 3.09 percent
  • David Toms: 13 wins in 607 events 2.14 percent
  • Adam Scott: 13 wins in 259 events 5.02 percent
  • Zach Johnson: 12 wins in 330 events 3.64 percent
  • Justin Leonard: 12 wins in 583 events 2.06 percent
  • Steve Stricker: 12 wins in 459 events 2.61 percent
  • Dustin Johnson: 11 wins in 194 events 5.67 percent
  • Rory McIlroy: 11 wins in 111 events 9.91 percent
  • Jason Day: 10 wins in 184 events 5.43 percent

Tiger is incredible.
