Tiger Woods makes his 2007 PGA Tour debut this week at the Buick Invitational in San Diego. He'll enter the year riding a six-tournament Tour win streak. Six more wins and he'll break the Tour record of 11 set by Byron Nelson in 1945. Just to refresh your memory, here's how Tiger has crafted his current streak.

Thanks to a course-record 65 in the third round at Medinah, Tiger cruised to a five-shot win and his 12th career major. That puts him two-thirds of the way to Jack Nicklaus' all-time mark.
