There's not a whole lot of stuff that can be written about Woods that hasn't been already. He is the game's ultimate closer, as evidence of his perfect 12-for-12 record when leading or co-leading after 54 holes in major championships. Since the 2004 Ryder Cup, Woods has an amazing 11 wins, including four majors. With his win at the 2006 Buick Open, he became the youngest player in the history of golf to accumulate 50 career wins, nearly three years sooner than Jack Nicklaus. Also in 2005, Woods missed the cut in a major -- the U.S. Open -- for the first time as a professional not long after the death of his father, Earl, but bounced back to win both the British Open and the PGA Championship.
