Tiger Woods Courses took drastic efforts to prevent themselves from becoming obsolete due to Tiger’s ability to hit the ball longer than anyone on Tour. Even though he’s been surpassed in driving distance in the recent years, the “Tiger-proofing” of layouts across the Tour stops provides evidence that Tiger was one of a kind in the late ‘90s.
