Tiger Woods equalled fellow American, Sam Snead’s record, set in 1965 of 82 tournament wins with his victory at the Zozo Championship.

In his first event since having his fifth knee operation nine weeks ago, Tiger woods has made history by equalling the tournament wins record (82), which was set over 50 years ago by Sam Snead. Woods played 29 holes on Sunday as the tournament attempted to make up for the weather delays, an amazing display in its self!

Woods has now won 3 times in the last 13 months, which includes victories at the 2018 Tour Championship and the 2019 Masters.

When Woods was really in trouble with his back problems a few years ago, Snead’s mark seemed to be safe but Tiger, who is fat becoming the King of comeback, looks like he will get to break that record, not just equal it. Snead was aged 52 when he won for the final time on the PGA Tour. On his future in golf, Tiger said:

As far as playing until 52, I hope that’s the case.

If you would have asked me a few years ago, I would have given you a different answer, but certainly the future looks brighter than it has.

The body can’t do what it used to but I can still think my way around the golf course. 

I know how to play and I was able to do that this week. There was a time if I didn’t know if I would play again so I am very appreciative.”

The 43-year-old has risen from tenth to sixth in the world rankings now and is setting his sights on returning to Japan to compete at the 2020 Olympics:

I know some of my friends have made Olympic teams before in the past and they said it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I’ll be 44 and I don’t know if I have many more chances after that.
