However, things started to change in 1996 when a player named Tiger Woods made his way into golf. Woods caught the attention of the whole world with his skill and talent and revolutionized golf.

Which was Tiger Woods’ best season on the PGA Tour?

Even though Tiger Woods was dominant from 2000 to 2010, he had an unfathomable season in 2000. He set or tied around 27 Tour records in this season. He won three consecutive majors, The U.S. Open, PGA Championship, and The Open Championship, and the 2001 Masters to complete a career grand slam.

Tiger also became only the second player in the history of this sport to win three major events in a year. He joined Ben Hogan, who achieved this in 1953. Moreover, he had the best scoring average of 68.17, which is the best in the history of golf. Woods also finished the year with 47 consecutive rounds of par or better and completed all 20 events of the season under par.
