With 20 major championship victories between them, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Paul Lawrie have enjoyed highly successful careers, been hugely influential in supporting and inspiring future generations of golfers, and served as outstanding global ambassadors for the sport.
Tiger Woods is one of the most recognisable and successful athletes of all time. After an excellent amateur career, in which he won the U.S. Amateur three times, Woods turned professional in 1996, and went on to win 15 major championships, including The Open on three occasions in 2000, 2005 and 2006.
His 82 victories on the PGA Tour are equalled only by Sam Snead. He won the Masters Tournament for the fifth time in 2019 at the age of 43 after recovering from back surgery and has recently returned again to professional golf after sustaining severe injuries in a car accident.
