Michael Phelps Hopes Tiger Woods Can Break Record For Most Major Wins

This weekend was a magical weekend in sports as Tiger Woods overcame the odds and won his 15th Major Tournament after having not won one in 11 years. Woods was considered by many as the best golfer all time until a sex scandal and numerous injuries left him a different athlete. His win at the Masters on Sunday is changing the narrative around Tiger and now some are wondering if he can break the record for most Major wins all-time.

That record currently belongs to Jack Nicklaus who has 18. Woods would need three to tie the record and four to surpass it. American swimming legend Michael Phelps was at The Masters on Sunday and saw Woods in all his glory. In an interview with TMZ, he said he’s optimistic Tiger can eventually break the elusive record.

“I hope he gets to 18. I’ll say that,” Phelps said. “Tiger’s back. That’s all I gotta say. He’s back.”

Woods will have an opportunity to show everyone whether or not he has what it takes to win even more Major titles. Next month in May, the best golfers in the world will play in the PGA Championship which is the second Major on the schedule this year.
