Pro golfer Tiger Woods defended his PGA title against Woody Austin. During the 2007 Championship, Woods won his 4th PGA by two shots. Woods is known as one of the sports’ most decorated golfers and is tied for most PGA Tour wins with Sam Snead. Woods arrived on the golf scene as a prolific 20-year-old who won his first Masters in 1997 in a record-breaking 12 strokes. He was ranked number one in the world just one year after turning pro and went on to collect 11 PGA Player of the Year awards over his career. He also won 18 World Golf Championship and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2019.
