Tiger Woods doesn't stop breaking records. Although he is now in the process of recovery and we expect him on the golf courses soon, Woods continues to amaze his fans and attracts a lot of attention to himself. It is redundant to say that Woods is currently the most popular golfer, but also one of the most popular athletes.
This is supported by new information from the PGA Tour. Tiger Woods was named the top performer in the PGA Tour's Player Impact Program. The criterion that decided who would take the first position was; How much the name was searched on Google, social media, people's interest in him, and the number of articles related to the golfer...
All of that was one criterion by which Woods took first place. Tiger Woods was awarded 15 million dollars by the PGA Tour! His good friend, Rory McIlroy, is in the second position, who is roughly in the same position as expected.
The Northern Irishman is increasingly popular, and his performances, especially this year, have influenced McIlroy to gain even greater popularity.
LIV Golf vs PGA Tour war
This duo is doing great things on the golf scene, and their fight against the PGA Tour is still ongoing.
They are determined that the PGA Tour will remain the most recognizable brand. LIV Golf and the leaders of the tour of the same name want to dominate the world of golf, and the fight between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf has not stopped for a long time.
In addition to Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, the list also includes many big names such as; Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, Matt Fitzpatrick, Jordan Spieth, Will Zalatoris, etc.. Many of them are great prospects and their careers will surely be even bigger.
Tiger Woods just confirms what we expected. We hope that he will recover as soon as possible and show his qualities. The PGA Tour showed him how much he means to them as a player, and we couldn't imagine this tour without him. It will only be an additional motive for him.
