How tall is Tiger Woods ?

Tiger Woods Height is 6ft 0in (183 cm)

American Professional Golfer. In the NY Times, 2009 he said, "If you look at it, guys are getting bigger and stronger. People forget that. When Jack and Gary and Arnold played, and Hogan, they're all about 5-9. I'm 6 foot and I'm the shortest guy in the top players of the world", and he has said that height back in the same paper in 2001, "I'm a 6-foot guy chasing a little white ball.". Strangely, some publications described him as 6ft 1 or 2 when again he has consistently said 6ft as his height: "Here I am six foot, and I'm considered short at six foot. Most of the guys now are 6'3", 6'2", 6'4" Just like every other sport, it's evolved".

Comment on the Height of Tiger Woods

SportsHeight said on 29/Sep/15
Rob, any chance Tiger's lost some height? Coming in to 2015, he'd already had a laundry list of injuries to the knees, back, and neck, resulting in back surgery and reconstructive knee surgery. Just had a second operation on his back.
[Editor Rob: a small fraction is always a possibility at his age, especially with some injuries/surgery.]

@176,2Trunman I agree that his ex is nowhere near 5'11". I don't know he she's listed that high. If she's actually 5'11" then Tiger Woods must be like 6'6" because Woods is consistently at least 3 inches taller than her even when she wears heels so yeah I'd say she is probably not more than 5'6". 5'5" seems fair for her. 5'11"...yeah right.

That's usually the case of people who start out in any industry as young as he did and stayed on top for so long. You tend to forget how young they were when they began, so you tend to think that they are older than what they actually are.

Anyway, some shots for reference with Jimmy Fallon and Rory McIlroy:

I guess this kind of disabuses me from the opinion that I held for years that Jimmy Fallon could possibly be a full 6'0". It's looking like he's only 5'11" at the most.
Arch Stanton said on 2/Feb/15
Astounding isn't it that he's not even 40 yet!!! I was honestly thinking of him as more like 49!!
miko said on 31/Jan/15
He's 39 now, and he's had an awful lot of surgeries on injuries his knees, back etc.... its not out of the question he could end up shaving half an inch by his early 40's.

I am 5'11" and have stood next to Tiger. He may have grown since he was 20. If not, he's about 5'10".

His ex wife Elin Nordegren is listed at 5'10-11 everywhere,hahahahaha,she almost never looks over 5'7 and that's probably with heels,I'm guessing she's around 5'5 give or take an inch,any opinion guys?
mike said on 18/Jun/14
183-184 range no less or no more.

His height changes in every photo. By Arnold Schwarzenegger he can look an easy 6'2" in one photo:

Click Here (this was taken in 2007 if I recall).

He has at least 2 inches on him there.

You need you eyes tested! Two inches? Barely taller, and that's probably because of camera angle. They look about the same height to me. Today I think he'd be about an inch taller than Arnie.

You are likely wrong PPS.
PPS said on 12/May/14
Tiger is probably 5 ft 11.5 - I was very surprised to meet him because I had thought he was huge. He was really quite slight - I know a lot of people who have met him have been similarly surprised.
Andrea said on 12/May/14
Yeah, MD. He keeps posting these pics, that have all possible bad angles! How can you compare people's heights with these photos? You shouldn't even try to post them. They're just useless...
Danny said on 11/May/14
I don't get it why people still think height matters for being the best at anything... Look at lionel messi he's 168-169 cm tall and he's one of the best soccer players of all time.
MD said on 28/Apr/14
Why do you keep posting ridiculously bad comparisons? That first pic of yours is absolutely laughable, and the second one is barely better.
MD said on 23/Apr/14
@Andrea, he almost always posts pictures with bad angles. I don't know why. If I can't find a picture with a good angle, I don't usually post it, unless you can judge something worth noting from it.
Andrea said on 22/Apr/14
How can you judge heights from a photo like that? He once again has camera advantage, you know what it is? o.O
His height doesn't change in every photo, he generally looks about 6', which is exactly what he claims...
Andrea said on 22/Apr/14
In all those photos he does look around 6', Sea. Mark Sanchez is closer to the camera, Federer too and with Michael Phelps he clearly has some big camera advantage! No way he looks only an inch shorter... He's probably 2-2.5 inches shorter than Phelps, who is not a full 6'3!!!
Mario said on 19/Apr/14
Gillete featured Reggie Bush, Cena, Derek Jeter and Woods for a event. Woods looked at least two inches over Cena (183 minimum). Woods is minimum 6ft 1. Strong insecurities are strong in this one.
MD said on 14/Apr/14
@Paul 181cm,

I agree that golfer's heights are probably every bit as overlisted as any other sport (something I was surprised to find the more I started watching the sport on television). Aside from agreeing with that, though, I don't even think they measure the guys or that when the guys give their height, they are giving them in their golf shoes. I think they are just basically doing what the general population is doing and giving themselves two extra inches, generally.

BTW, Spieth is listed at 6'1" by the PGA, now. I agree about Scott, though, who I've always suspected of really being 5'11", tops. The funny thing is that when Scott gave the Bubba Watson the green jacket, yesterday, I honestly didn't see much over an inch, yet I regularly see Bubba listed at 6'3".
Paul 181cm said on 11/Apr/14
I agree that 6'0 is a solid above average height for the PGA Tour. The listed heights are nearly all jacked up by an inch or 2. Golf shoes add a significant amount of height because of the spikes and I think that the tour measures heights based on in-shoe estimate (like the NBA) and not on a barefoot estimate. The real tour average is probably 5'10.5/5'11
Guys like Scott, Dufner, Day, Spieth are all listed 6'0 when they are clearly weak 5'11 range or lower.

Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 12/Mar/14
He isn't short for a golfer at all. Most of the current ones are around his height (or shorter).

He looks to be about 6'1.
The Doc said on 17/Mar/14
Regarding Phil Mickelson: Stood next to him. I'm a legitimate 6'1... he had me by between two and three inches... I'd say he's an easy 6'3.5

Have been near (not next to) Woods... he seems a legitimate 6' tall, maybe a bit more.

MD said on 13/Mar/14
Yeah, he's not a short and not even for a golfer, but a lot of the top players are well above 6'0", these days. I have to say that pro-golf has to be one of the fastest "growing" of the major sports in how much taller the top athletes have gotten. The average height for the top players definitely has to be at least 6'0", these days.
Mr. R said on 13/Mar/14
For many years at the start of his career Tiger was listed as 6-2.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Mar/14
Not exactly "short" for a golfer no, but as Tiger says there's a lot of 6'3"-'6'4" guys on the tour nowadays.
MD said on 8/Mar/14
Kind of just something else to add to the pile since we can't see the ground and this is a golf course, after all, but here he is with 5'11.75" basektball player Chris Paul and 6'0" Kid Rock:

Click Here

I've always thought Kid Rock was closer to 5'11" than 6'0". Either way, you can see that they are very close in height, so this 6'0" for Tiger is very close to the mark, maybe 5'11.5" to 5'11.75" at the absolute lowest.
176,2Tunman said on 25/Feb/14
Funny how sites describe him up to 6'2 when he claimed he's only 6'.Seems like some fans are hopeless,take the example of Daveigh Chase,she claimed 5'8,is listed here 5'7 which is more likely and still some sites have her at 5'10.5!Press and fan sites are definitely the last reliable sources to know a celebrity height.
Ron said on 7/Jan/14
It's funny how people think 6 foot is short. I'm 5'11 and people tell me all the timee saying "wow you really gotten tall man!"
scata said on 23/Nov/13
Very confused. His wife is listed as 5'11 yet in all pictures he looks much more than an inch taller than her.

"Tiger Woods's height is 6ft 0.25in (184cm)"
Rell said on 25/Sep/13
I would state Tiger is 5' 11 1/2". He is at least three inches taller than Rory McIlroy (so McIlroy is definitely not 5' 10" as he claims). Phil is at least two inches taller than Tiger. Kuchar who is listed at 6' 4" seems to tower over Tiger...looks more than 4" maybe even 5". Stricker is listed at 6' and has at least a half an inch on Tiger.
Bill said on 16/Sep/13
I just stood less then 10ft. away from Tiger at the BMW championship and I'm 5'11" and felt even with him. Its fair to say he's 6'0" (definitely not taller then 6'1").
Handcock said on 18/Jul/13
Tiger Woods is a mystery. He is most definitely 6 ft 2 inches tall or even taller. My friend who is 6 ft 1 in and I were at the same resort as Tiger and walking to the men's spa I could clearly tell Tiger was about an inch taller than him.
Spencer said on 15/Jul/13
Phil is 6'1.5 or just shy of 6'2. Tiger is 6 even. No more. No less. I don't buy 5'11. He has always looked 6 to me.
historicus said on 15/Jun/13
I saw Phil Mickelson up close yesterday. Hes barely 6'1, and he has about 2 inches on Tiger. Tiger isnt any taller than 5'11.

Henrik Stenson looks a bit taller than Phil physically and hes a solid 6'1.
tall said on 13/Jun/13
depends on which time of the day Rob measures Tiger s height..
honestly..he looks about 6 ft ..BUT..if Lindsay Vonn is 5 10..Tiger is at least 186 or 6 1 ..since he is considerably taller as her..

i mean..if you mean he is 6 ft in the evening he could claim morning height 6 1 ..and i heard that a lot of men claim morning height..since they get measured at army physical s in the morning etc.
TSM said on 27/May/13
I will add that Phil Mickelson is a legitimate 6'3", at least.
TSM said on 27/May/13
I greatly dislike woods, but having seen him in person, and close up, he's at least as tall as I am, and I'm 6'1/2". I don't believe he's lying about his height.
Penguinboy25 said on 19/Mar/13
6'0 looks right. In another photo with Arnold he actually looks taller. Looks right about 2 inches shorter than 6'2 Tony Romo also.
Spencer said on 1/Mar/13
Saw him today at the Honda. Playing with 6'3 6'4 Dustin Johnson looked 3-4 inches shorter. I think he is a legit 6 footer but not much more.
Jamesy said on 14/Jan/13
He looks under 6ft in pics with Barack obama
Connor 184cm said on 23/Dec/12
Rob do you think tiger is 6ft as he claims to be? to me he looks more 5ft 11.5 or 5ft 11.75 could also be possible.
[Editor Rob: I think he's an honest enough 6 footer]
MBH said on 5/Dec/12
I'm 6'1"and a lot of the time when some one asks how tall are you ill say 6 foot I thinks that's what Tiger is doing. As well his golf shoes add 3/4 to 1 inch now he wood be around 6'2" if he is really 6'1".

Yeah, Els is a solid 6-3 guy at least, like Vijay Singh. Tiger is right at 6ft tops, seen him up close in Augusta.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Nov/12

With Tiger Woods. He surely has to be a legit 6'3" guy?
Arch Stanton said on 25/Nov/12
Rob, any estimates for Ernie Els? He reminds me of John Wayne in height and build but some people say he isn't even a legit 6'3"?
[Editor Rob: ernie's been quoted saying both 6ft 3 and 4 as his height]
Arch Stanton said on 25/Nov/12
Yeah McIlroy is no way 5'9", much less 5'10 as I've seen him listed at!! He's small framed.
Gustavemalachane said on 10/Oct/12
Rob what do you think of mcilroy's height.
[Editor Rob: more 5ft 8 range.

Funnily Graeme McDowell says he's only 5ft 7 (even though he's listed at an insane 5ft 11). McIlroy ain't much taller.]
