2009 AT&T National
By Sal Johnson
Tiger Woods now has 68 career victories. He's five wins away from Jack Nicklaus's career total, and 14 away from Sam Sneed's leading total of 82. The difference? Woods won his 68th at age 33; Snead's came at the 1953 Baton Rouge Open at age 40 and Nicklaus got his at the 1978 IVB Philadelphia Classic at age 38.

Of the 68 victories, 43 have (or had) corporate sponsors who also sponsored Tiger, including AT&T (two times), Buick (eight times), Accenture (three times) and American Express (five times).

Tiger Woods and Anthony Kim have played in the same event 17 times, though this is the first time they have been paired together. Of the 17 times, Tiger has finished ahead of Kim 16 times (they tied at the 2009 Accenture Match Play). Also, Tiger has won the event in seven of their 17 meetings.

Tiger has now won 45 of 48 (94%) tournaments when leading or co-leading after 54 holes. The three tournaments he didn't win were the 1996 Quad City Open (T5) and the 2000 and 2004 Tour Champioships (second both times). He has won 68 out of his 231 professional starts for a staggering winning percentage of 29.4%.

Tiger Woods has better results on par 72 courses, perhaps because there are more par 5s for him to dominate. He has won 45 out of 128 times on par 72s. But he's starting to catch up on par 70s. In his last 15 starts on par 70 courses, including at the AT&T National, Woods has won nine times.
