Will Tiger ever beat Jack's Major Record?

Tiger Woods has been plagued with injuries and personal issues for a number of years now. There are now new dominate forces in the golf world (Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Justin Johnson, Jason Day).

Tiger could still match Jack Nicklaus' major championship record of 18 in 2017, but, he'll need to win all 4 majors; not likely. Will he break the record in the next few years?

Although it's looking unlikely that Tiger will be able to meet or surpass Nicklaus' major record, he could set the record for most PGA Tour wins. He's close to Sam Snead's PGA Tour lifetime win record of 82.

Golf Club Ranges & Temperature

Distance greatly depends on temperature.

The difference in golf club range when 90 F and 60 F can be a full club. If you don't adjust to temperature, you can come up short more often. Learn about your "club print" distanes at different temperatures and hit more greens.
