With zero major championships, it is tempting to consider Tiger’s 2012 season a failure, but it’s important to take a look at the whole picture before passing judgment.
Over the past year, Woods has sustained no major injuries, finished second on the PGA Tour’s money list with $6.1 million in earnings and passed Jack Nicklaus on the PGA’s all-time win list with his 74th career victory.
On his season, Woods told NDTV, "There was quite a few people out there that said I would never win again," adding, "I think, collectively, passing Jack, I think that's a pretty good accomplishment."
Statistically speaking (via PGATour.com), Tiger finished second on tour in scoring average, a fraction of a stroke behind leader Rory McIlroy.
It's important to note that in terms of front-nine play, he actually finished first on tour, with an impressive stroke average of 34.7.
It's hard to argue with Tiger's entire body of work in 2012, which will give him positive momentum heading into the new year.
