He’s done it twice (Buick Invitational 2005-08, Bay Hill 2000-03).

The last player before Woods to reach the career milestone of 7 majors won (total) in men’s golf was Tom Watson in 1982.
From 2004-06, Tiger had 1,466 putts from 3 feet and in measured by ShotLink.

He missed three of them.
Incredibly, Tiger won his 100th, 200th and 300th official starts on the PGA Tour.

Tiger Woods: 95.7% (44-for-46)
During the entire 2000 PGA Tour season, Tiger Woods recorded one round higher than 73. It came in the first round of the Masters.

He shot 75, on a day when the field averaged 75.59.
In a stretch from the 1999 Deutsche Bank through the 2001 Memorial, Tiger in official worldwide events:

46 starts
23 wins
Combined margin of victory: 79 shots
5 major wins in 8 starts, including 4 straight
11 wins by 3+ shots
...6 finishes outside top-10
There are 3 instances in PGA Tour history of a player winning 8 or more times at the same course.

They belong to Tiger Woods (Bay Hill), Tiger Woods (Firestone) and Tiger Woods (Torrey Pines).
There are only two instances since 1900 of a player winning a men's professional major by 10 strokes or more.

Tiger has both of them, and they were both by 12+ (1997 Masters, 2000 U.S. Open).
Over the last 10 seasons, players with a 3+ shot lead entering the final round of a PGA TOUR event have gone on to win 61.7% of the time.

Woods is 25-for-25 in those situations in his career.
