The PGA Tour in this day and age is not solely dominated by one single player, and that's because the talent is through the roof. With players coming from all over the globe, every week there is a great chance you could see a new winner. However, from the years off 1999-2009, the game was dominated by a single player, Tiger Woods. Now, 39 from Cypress California, Woods turned professional in 1996, and before that played collegiately in Stanford for two seasons.

In that ten year period, solely on the PGA Tour, Woods won 59 tournaments, totalling just over 88 million dollars, that of course not including endorsements.

Playing in 172 tournaments total within that ten year period, Tiger amazingly only missed four cuts and added one withdraw. Oddly enough, the year that Tiger missed two cuts which was the most he ever missed within the period was also the year that he earned his second most amount of winnings in one year, totalling just over $10.5 million. Tiger received $10.867 million in 2007, the most he has ever received in one PGA season.

Tiger's list of achievements goes on – he has won the PGA player of the year eleven times, was the leader in money winnings another ten times and toss in 14 major championship wins to sit second only behind the great Jack Nicklaus, who has 18. Will Tiger ever reach Nicklaus?

The biggest question is he even capable of winning tournaments these days? That's something that will be asked constantly until Tiger either silences his critics, or lays down and hangs up the sticks.

Now, we move on to 2010, the year after the so-called "secret" life of Tiger became not so secret which led to the divorce of his ex-wife and model Elin Nordegren.

Yes, in this five year period between 2010 and the present, Tiger has showed that maybe he is making a trip back to the promised land, winning eight tournaments combined between 2012 and 2013 that included just over $15.5 million. But what you can also look at, and what most people do look at, is Tiger in this past five years has missed eight cuts.

That's double the amount of cuts he missed in the prior ten years, and you add six more withdraws because of personal issues/ knee issues, it's simple, Tiger Woods is just not the same golfer as he used to be. Want to add another reason why he isn't the same as he used to be? From 1999-2008, Woods won 13 major tournaments, including winning by 15 strokes in arguably one of the toughest Majors to date at the 2000 US Open at Pebble Beach, beating a record set in 1862 when Old Tom Morris won the US Open by 13 strokes. But since 2008, Tiger has not won a Major Championship.

Tiger will get one more chance before turning 40 at ending his seven year streak without winning a Major August 13th-16th at Whistling Straits at the PGA Championship, after he failed to make the cut at the 144th Open Championship this past weekend with a two round score of +7.

Whether you think Tiger is still one of the greatest players to ever play this game, or not. Once upon a time, Tiger was the "greatest" but will he get back there? Stay tuned, because whenever Tiger does decide to tee it up, he is the man of the moment.
