Title: Tiger in the Hunt | Limited Edition 50
This painting was inspired by the greatness that is Tiger Woods. My goal was to capture the athletic features that allows Tiger to dominate the sport of golf. Tiger was painted in his vintage red shirt with his features highlighted by a warm glow as he follows his iron shot to the green. The background foilage was painted to follow the flow of his swing to add drama to the moment.
Without question, Tiger’s domination of the PGA tour and fiery spirit has elevated him to the most followed sports figure since Michael Jordan. With 64 PGA Tour wins (and counting) and four Master’s victories, Tiger’s only goal remaining is to reach the most victories of the Major’s long established by Jack Nicklaus.
Here are some stats to put his dominance in perspective:
» Has won 29% (64 out of 220) of his professional starts on the PGA Tour.
» Defended a title 21 times on the PGA Tour, has finished runner-up 24 times, third place 17 times
» Has a 31-6 record when leading after 36 holes in Tour events, and a 43–3 record when leading after 54 holes
Tiger’s reign is far from over with the history books still wide open. Stay tuned.
