In August 2006, Woods's win at the Buick Open was his 50th win on the PGA Tour, making him the youngest golfer to ever reach that number of wins.
At the 2003 TOUR Championship, he set an all-time record for most consecutive cuts made with 114 (passing Byron Nelson's previous record of 113), and extended this mark to 142 before it ended on May 13, 2005 at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship.
PGA Tour television ratings and prize money increased dramatically after Woods' arrival, which served to discredit his detractors to the point that, as of 2006, the complaints which led to "Tiger-Proofing" are rarely heard.

 Tom Watson (golfer) Summary
In the 1970s and 1980s he was one of the leading players in the world, winning eight major championships and heading the PGA Tour money list five times.
A lifelong golfer (first gaining local renown while on his high school team at The Pembroke-Country Day School in Kansas City), Watson began his golf career in 1971, the same year he graduated from Stanford University, where he was a member of Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity, with a degree in psychology.
Watson's stellar play on the PGA Tour faded in the late 1980s when he began to have major problems with putting, but he had a revival in the late 1990s and the last of his 39 wins on the PGA Tour came at the 1998 MasterCard Colonial when he was forty eight years old.

The course consists of a series of "holes." The "hole" means both the hole in the ground into which the ball is played, as well as the total distance from the tee (a pre-determinied area from where a ball is first hit) to the green (the area surrounding the actual hole in the ground).
Special rules determine how a golfer may proceed when his or her ball is very close to certain man-made objects on the course (obstructions) or resting upon ground in abnormal condition.
Woods also came closest to winning all four current majors in one season (known as a Grand Slam) when he won them consecutively across two seasons: the 2000 U.S. Open, Open Championship, and PGA Championship; and the 2001 Masters.
