Tiger Woods is the greatest golfer of all time. He has 82 PGA Tour and 15 major championship wins in his career so far. Meanwhile, earlier people used to consider golf as an old man’s and boring sport. But Tiger, with his incredible golfing skills and talent, caught the attention of people and popularized this sport.

Soon after his debut in 1996, he became a global athlete and the face of this incredible sport. Moreover, his performance, especially from 2000 to 2010, was unfathomable. Hence, these 10 to 11 years were considered as Tiger’s era. He dominated almost every time he stepped onto the field. So let us have a look at an interesting stat of Tiger.

Moreover, there is no other golfer who even has a 10-win percentage on the PGA Tour. Therefore, Tiger, with a 22.9 win percentage, shows the dominance he has had in his career with 82 PGA Tours and 15 major championship wins. Moreover, it also defines why he is considered to be the greatest golfer of all time.

Meanwhile, the next best golfer on this list is the Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy. He has a winning percentage of around 9.4, which is the second-best. There are plenty of players closer to him, with Dustin Johnson at 8.4%, Justin Thomas at 7.9%, and Phil Mickelson at 7.0%. 

Moreover, legendary players like Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and others aren’t part of this list as they played most of their golf before 1983. But given their overall records, they could have easily given a tough fight to Woods. But since the actual stats aren’t available, it’s not fair to compare these players with Tiger.
