62: Tiger Catches Arnie

Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer are old friends by this time, from Tiger choosing to play in an exhibition with the "King" without an appearance fee to choosing to playing out of order a few years back in order to play next to Arnie. However, while few would probably argue that Arnie was a "better" player than Tiger relative to his competition, Tiger did equal one of Palmer's great achievements (so, may silence such critics): 62 PGA Tour victories.

Of course, tying Arnie's victory mark came with little fanfare, and certainly would have been a goal (if truly one) that has taken a backseat to larger ones (i.e. beating Jack Nicklaus's record in Major Championships).

For now, it looks like Tiger has another champion down, which means he has few heroes and goals left to chase.
