Woods personifies competitiveness and when he first stepped out on Tour, he did everything different- ly. He hit the gym, ate right, didn't mix with many players, rarely en- gaged with the public and he only seemed comfortable if you were uncomfortable in his presence. Yet as the years have passed, experience and age have taught him well. He is now a much more engaging Woods, both on and off the golf course, but don't let the smile fool you because some things remain the same; Tiger's still as competitive as ever and at 43, he doesn't see his age as any bar- rier to further success. To this day, Woods is still rein- venting the wheel. His ability to navigate his way around Augusta with a fused spine and a new swing is testament to a never say die at- titude that few, if any athletes are ingrained with quite like Tiger. For a long time, it looked as though his hopes of catching Jack Nicklaus' 18-Major haul were fading into the rear-view mirror. After his latest win, who's to say the GOAT won't live up to his name and break that record too? At 43-years young, Tiger Woods achieved something few thought he still could; a 15th Major and a fifth green jacket. Who's to say he won't go on to win more? WOODS PROVES AGE IS JUST A NUMBER WITH MAJOR #15 Tiger Woods
