Not since Woods' victory in the 2009 Australian Masters has the former world number one tasted the sweet taste of a 72-hole success.

However, victory at the Kingston Heath golf course also coincided with Woods' slip into infamy, with revelations of extra-marital affairs surfacing after Woods crashed his car soon after the tournament.

Woods then suffered not only the break-down of his marriage to Elin Nordegren, but had to contend with injury, swing changes, loss of form and a massive slide down golf's pecking order.
