Golf Channel To Air 15-Hour Tiger Marathon

Attention Tiger fans: time to set those DVRs! In honor of Tiger’s 41st birthday, or in an obvious attempt to drive ratings, Golf Channel recently released its schedule for a 15-hour must-see TV event featuring – wait for it – every single one of Tiger’s major championship wins. 

It all starts Friday at 6 a.m. EST with a documentary, and then the real fun begins. They’ll take us through each major separately in chronological order, like a trilogy, but there’s 4 of them! 

Unless you’re taking the day off to watch 15 straight hours of TV (like some people we know…wink, wink), chances are you’ll have to pick and choose which historic wins you’ll want to relive. Here are a few of our favorites:

2000 PGA Championship – Duel with Bob May (8-9 a.m. EST)

There are some moments in Tiger’s career that are literally unforgettable and this is one of them. 

2006 Open Championship – Tiger’s first win since his father’s passing (1-2 p.m. EST)

We all had an idea of the relationship Tiger shared with his father, but this reaction was everything.

2000 U.S. Open – Tiger laps the field to win by a record 15 shots (2-3 p.m. EST)

In what could be the single greatest major performance, Tiger blistered the field at Pebble Beach en route to claiming his first U.S. Open.

1997 Masters – Tiger wins his first major in record fashion (5-6 p.m. EST)

Who can forget that epic fist-pump on 18 after sinking the final putt. The Tiger era was officially underway.
