He’s second to Jack Nicklaus for major championship wins and second to Sam Snead in all-time PGA Tour victories. But he’s inarguably the best-ever golfer from his new home state. Woods has now resided in the Sunshine State for roughly half his life, having relocated here from California in 1996. As a Florida resident he has won 11 Player of the Year awards, all 14 of his major titles and nearly every one of his greatest professional triumphs. Jack Nicklaus might have an even a stronger claim to Florida greatness, but on a hanging chad vote that yielded a 1-0 decision, Tiger takes Florida.
