Tiger Woods signed Masters Sunday shirt sells for HUGE money at auction!

Tiger Woods' Sunday Red Nike Golf shirt from the 2010 Masters Tournament has sold for just shy of $140,000 at Golden Age Auctions. 

Woods also signed the shirt, which obviously helped further boost its appeal with golf fans.

Despite selling for $139,348.80, Woods did not even win The Masters at Augusta National that week.

Woods finished tied fourth on 11-under par and five strokes behind Phil Mickelson, who of course now finds himself over on LIV Golf

The bid for the shirt started at $5,000 on November 22, 2022. 

It received 31 bids in total before eventually being sold on December 10, 2022. 

The former World No.1 of course has 15 major championships to his name, with his last coming memorably at the 2019 Masters against all the odds. 

Woods has won The Masters five times. That is one shy of record 18-time major champion Jack Nicklaus

If you thought $140k for a Tiger Masters shirt was impressive, it is nothing compared to the sale of the 'Tiger Slam' irons that sold for a mind-boggling figure earlier this year. 

The "Tiger Slam" irons were used when he won four consecutive major championships across 2000 and 2001. 

There was some debate about if the clubs were genuine. They were in possession of Texas businessman Todd Brock. 

Brock purchased the clubs at auction from former Titleist VP Steve Mata for just over $57,000 in 2010. 

The set included nine Titleist 681-T irons and two Vokey wedges. One of them is a 58-degree wedge and the other is 60 degrees. Both of the wedges have "Tiger" stamped on them.

To ensure the authenticity of the clubs, the irons came with an affidavit and polygraph results from former Mata and another affidavit from former Titleist vice president Rick Nelson.

Ryan Carey, the owner of Golden Age auctions, told the PGA Tour that they are 100 per cent sure that they were the clubs used by Woods when he was at the peak of his powers. 

The irons ended up selling for $5.16 million.

The "Tiger Slam" is seen as one of the greatest accomplishments ever in golf when 25-year-old Woods won four consecutive majors over the course of two calendar years. 

Woods won the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, The Open Championship at St Andrews, the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club and capped it off with a win at The Masters. 

It will come as no surprise that the Tiger Slam irons are the most expensive piece of golf memorabilia in history. 

The most expensive piece of memorabilia in world sport was the shirt worn by Diego Maradona during the 1986 World Cup during the "Hand of God" match against England. 

That sold for $8.95million.

Last month, it emerged that one of the "finest artefacts" of Woods' peerless career was also being auctioned.

Last week, Woods returned to action alongside Rory McIlroy but the golf legends were comfortably beaten 3&2 by Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.
