Tiger Woods at the 2024 Masters Tournament writes another historic page in golf. The Californian champion has made the cut for the 24th consecutive time in Georgia, setting yet another record. No one before him had ever achieved this feat.

The 15-time Major champion, with a score of 72 (par) for a total of 145 strokes (73 72, +1), secured his spot in the final phase of the most iconic event in international golf. Although far from the top positions, after a brilliant first round, Woods achieved his first goal thanks to his golden touch.

The Big Cat in 2023, before retiring due to injury during the third round, had equaled the record of Gary Player (1959-1982) and Fred Couples (1983-2007). A year later, despite many physical problems, here he is, tenacious in surpassing those two legends of the sport.

Woods, who has won the green jacket five times (the first in 1997, the last in 2019), can smile. At his 26th Masters, 29 years after his debut (where he was the best amateur in the competition in 1995), he received yet another standing ovation from the patrons.

So, at Augusta, while awaiting the moving day that precedes the final round, the spotlight is once again on Woods. The Californian is increasingly becoming a legend of a tournament unique in history and tradition. Eldrick Tont Woods, better known as Tiger Woods (born December 30, 1975, Cypress), is an American golfer.

Considered by many as the greatest golfer of all time, as well as the best of the modern era, in his multi-decade career, he has won 110 professional tournaments, including 15 majors, making him the most decorated player in history.

He held the top spot in the OWG world ranking for a total of 683 weeks, including 281 consecutive weeks (from June 12, 2005, to October 30, 2010), and is the only golfer to have won all four modern-era major tournaments within a single year (between 2000 and 2001).

In 2014, he became the first athlete in the world to surpass one billion dollars in earnings from victories and sponsorships.
