Tiger Woods ties Sam Snead’s record with win No. 82 at Zozo Championship in Japan! How many times has the World of Golf doubted a comeback by Tiger Woods? And how many times has he proven us wrong? Looking confident, relaxed and sound, Woods led with 28 birdies and to top Hideki Matsuyama by three shots for his 82nd PGA Tour title, tying him with Sam Snead for most in history. Snead was 52 when he last won in 1965.
Woods hasn’t had enough yet. His agent, Mark Steinberg, told him on the 18th green, “You never cease to amaze me.” Gary Woodland said, who played the final 36 holes with Woods, “He looked like the best player in the world.”
In an effort to get No. 83, Woods’ next start on the Tour likely will be in the 2020 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, where he’s won eight times, including the 2008 U.S. Open. The PGA Tour Wins Record will very likely be broken soon. Maybe it’s time we stop doubting “the best player in the world” and start applauding him for all of his accomplishments!
