Tiger Woods Height
6ft 0 (182.9 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"

Spencer Dobkin said on 23/Nov/19
No more than 5'11.25" today. I don't think he was more than 182 at peak.
cmillz said on 3/Nov/19
6’1.5” for Stenson is possible.
Dustin Johnson on the other hand looks more 6’3 than 6’4.
viper said on 27/Oct/19
I actually saw Faldo up close at a restaurant.
Stenson is a strange one.
I'm betting bang on 6-1.5
Can't see him being underlisted by a full inch.
cmillz said on 26/Oct/19
Stenson looked closer to 6’2 than 6’1 to me when I saw him up close.
said on 26/Oct/19
Rob, don’t Tiger and Fallon look nearly identical in height here? Maybe Tiger would edge Fallon out? Seems like Tiger has slightly less footwear too.
Fallon will have more hair, and potentially a bit more sneaker, I would say Woods is the taller out of them both.
viper said on 24/Oct/19
Stenson may be 6-1.5
From a distance he gave off a wild 6-3-6-4 impression to me.
Then another tournament just 6-1
cmillz said on 24/Oct/19
Rahm looked near 6’2 when I saw him up close at the BMW Championship.
said on 12/Oct/19
Rob, no Jon Rahm listing?
I'm not so up to speed on Golf, but I did see his claim "6 feet 3 inches and 236 lb"...it seems a bit rounded up.
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 28/Sep/19
He is 5ft 11 range golfer for sure.....
cmillzz said on 22/Aug/19
Justin Thomas looks 5’9 max to me.
viper said on 19/Aug/19
I've seen Faldo up close and he looked 6-3
cmillzz said on 15/Aug/19
Tiger honestly does look 5’11 a lot strangely enough. But I really don’t know if he’d measure that short.
cmillzz said on 22/Jul/19
Tiger - 5’11.5
Rory - 5’7.25
Rickie - 5’7
DJ - 6’3.25 (possibly a full 6’3.5)
Stenson - 6’1.75 (could be a full 6’2)
Spieth - 6’0
Mickelson - 6’1-6’1.5 (hard to tell because of his posture)
Kuchar - 6’4 (maybe even a strong 6’4)
MD said on 19/Jul/19
He honestly looks slightly shorter than Brooks Koepka, who is listed at 6'0".
cmillzz said on 6/Jul/19
yeah, Faldo at his peak was a legit 6’3. Not sure about 6’3.5” though.
said on 5/Jul/19
Btw Rob, I think it might be worth adding Nick Faldo.
Faldo has claimed 6ft 3 and a half pretty consistantly, actually once going with 6ft 3 5/8ths! I can see him near 6ft 3 peak.
said on 4/Jul/19
Rob, do you think Tiger has lost any height?
Nothing obvious yet...
said on 3/Jul/19
Tiger looks the same height as 5-10.5 Reggie Bush here. Click Here
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Jul/19
PR Photo making Tiger look closer to 5'9 3/4 not 6'0. Lol but he is more 5'11 3/4-ish than 6'0 next to Charles Barkley.
cmillzz said on 2/Jul/19
I think Dustin Johnson could be 6’3.5” maybe, but that’s about as high as I would go.
cmillzz said on 21/May/19
yeah, Dustin Johnson does look closer to 6’3 honestly.
cmillzz said on 1/May/19
Agreed. Saw Kuchar up close some years back and he looked every bit of 6’4 to me. He seemed possibly an inch taller than DJ.
viper said on 26/Apr/19
Matt Kuchar is a legit 6-4
cmillzz said on 24/Apr/19
Lol Patrick Reed listed as 6’0 but looks more 5’10ish. Some pictures he even looks closer to 5’9.
viper said on 21/Apr/19
Dustin Johnson looks closer to 6-3
viper said on 16/Apr/19
Yep, seen Vijay up close and he's 6-2.
He's an inch taller than 6-1 Mikelson.
cmillzz said on 15/Apr/19
Vijay Singh is definitely a legit 6’2 guy, even now in his 50s, he doesn’t look like he’s lost any height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Apr/19
Still think Faldo and Vijay Singh need pages
cmillzz said on 15/Apr/19
Huge win for Tiger, he’s established himself as the GOAT imo, even if he’s a few majors short of Nicklaus. He could even win more in the next few years, definitely wouldn’t surprise me.
cmillzz said on 20/Mar/19
5’10 is ridiculous, he still clears 5’11 today I’m sure. I could buy 5’11.5”
I don’t really think he’s lost any height tbh.
Lamont Cranston said on 12/Mar/19
I was in Dallas for business a year or so before it all fell apart for Tiger. An associate had tickets for the Byron Nelson Tournament, and we went.
As we were walking towards the viewing booths at the 18th, on of his puts overshot and landed near us. he walked quickly, and actually out walked the crowd, and the security people. We froze, but for a handful of seconds got within 2 - 3 meters of him....Very athletic, and again hard to tell, but he was somewhere between 5'10" and 6'0"...
I am guessing now, with several back operations, and more than a decade, 5'10" would be tops, and slightly less most likely.
(Rob, again, it looks as if you can set the options..I have noticed that for some long - time celebrities - on your board - there are no options for heights that the are quite likely at currently...Is there a way to open it up more?)
Spencer said on 2/Feb/19
In a photo posted today Trump looks an inch taller. Tiger looks 5'11.5" nowadays. Maybe just under 6 peak ?
said on 22/Dec/18
Tiger oddly looked a bit taller than 6'2" Samuel L Jackson in 2006: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Although Jackson is clearly slouching, it's hard to believe he'd be any taller than Tiger at that event.
Christian 6'5 3/8
said on 11/Nov/18
It's strange that he claims 6'0" yet he described Barkley as no more than 6'4", when they look easily 5 inches apart.
I think maybe a little bit of teasing going on there.
Canson said on 9/Nov/18
@Junior: I think that’s about 5” there. He looks 5’11.5 with Phelps as well
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Oct/18
Look 5'11 1/2 with 6'4 3/4 Charles Barkley.
Blake said on 30/Sep/18
Tiger was 5 ft 9 when he was 14.
Tibby Wight said on 10/Sep/18
Looks a little over 5'11" most of the time. Around 5'11.25". He usually has great posture so I can see 5'11.5" or even 5'11.75" but not 6'. I believe he is just under it. Although if I met him in person the first time I wouldn't be surprised if he said 6'.
cmillzz said on 10/Aug/18
Yeah Rob, I’d like to see DJ added as well. I saw him up close and my guess was 6’3.5” but he could very well be slightly under that. Didn’t think he was a legit 6’4, but I think he clears 6’3 flat.
If you’ve ever seen Matt Kuchar, now he is every bit of 6’4, possibly in the 6’4.5” range.
KittyKing said on 9/Aug/18
cmon Rob, go ahead and put Dustin Johnson on the list. He's been number 1 on the pga tour for a while now. My guess is that he's 6'3"
He claims 6'4" though
cmillzz said on 4/Aug/18
Yeah I’m starting to think he might be a hair under 6’0 after looking at him some more. 5’11-5’11.25” at a low seems doubtful though.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/Jun/18
Look 1/2 on Jimmy Fallon.
Shane said on 27/Jun/18
I'm guessing he might 5'11 3/4" barefoot range out of bed. I'd say his low is around 5'11 to 5'11 1/4" barefoot.
Trident said on 14/Jun/18
Tiger is looking 5’11.5 these days
said on 5/May/18
Rob, what do you think Justin Thomas's real height is? He's listed as 5'10 but from a distance I thought he looked closer to 5'9.
Not that familiar with him
star69 said on 4/May/18
Cameron said on 23/Jun/17
bang on 6 feet, looks shorter in this pic due to baggy pants.
Yeah, he's always claimed 6'0 and it seems right. He's a little shorter than 6'1 Federer. I agree the baggy pants he's wearing
make him look shorter and chunkier.
cmillzz said on 12/Apr/18
Sergio is definitely not 5’10. 5’9 tops.
cmillzz said on 12/Apr/18
I saw Dustin Johnson up close and I would agree with 6’3.5
He was playing a practice round with Gary Woodland who is listed as 6’1 but I felt he was more 6’0. Stenson looked 6’2 to me.
Hijoputamos said on 9/Apr/18
6 ft and looks like it beside Cabrera-Bello who stands 6ft2 and were paired at their last round at The Masters.
Tiger is over 2 inches taller than 5ft10 Sergio García.
viper said on 8/Apr/18
Dustin Johnson may be 6-3.5
said on 4/Apr/18
Rob, while looking at Fed and Will Smith pics... I stumbled across this... makes you question whether Tiger is even 6ft :)
Tiger generally does look his claim, I believe about an inch shorter than Federer in the Gilette shaving ads they done together.
said on 31/Mar/18
Rob, what is your guess on Dustin Johnson? He is listed at 6'4.
Not seen enough of him, but he gets called 6ft 3 and 4...whether a big 6ft 4 I'm not so sure.
Josh9 said on 6/Mar/18
I think he is bang on 183 cm.
I’m amazed how well he is playing now after all the injuries and surgeries. At one point he could hardly even walk, and now he’s smashing the ball, hitting it out there with Dustin Johnson and other long hitters. I think he will win more tournaments. He seems to be healthy again. Will he win another major though? That is another question.
Canson said on 30/Jan/18
@Christian: Peyton towers him lol
said on 29/Jan/18
Peyton looks 5.5" or so taller so about 5'11.5" maybe for Tiger, especially when this was in 2014 so Peyton could've dropped to 6'5" from 6'5.25" Click Here
awkward said on 29/Jan/18
Peyton Manning is towering him, he is nothing more than a flat 5'11 in my opinion
cmillzz said on 26/Dec/17
He does seem taller than 6'0 tbh, but he consistently claims 6'0, so I guess I'll have to go with that.
Not sure why anyone would think he's as short as 5'11. Clearly doesn't look that short.
Redwing said on 2/Dec/17
I like that he constantly claims 6 foot; he knows his height that's for sure.
Canson said on 27/Nov/17
@Christian: I’d say a mixed bag and agree with you! Some are overlisted others aren’t. But more are overlisted of course esp when he hasn’t met the celeb
Nik said on 27/Nov/17
@ Christian-6'5 3/8 - Hi!
Well it is just my opinion but that is all I can go on! I think there are limited occasions when Rob is more than 1/4 of an inch out but that is understandable with vast numbers of celebrities to look at, he won't have time to study them all enough. However with the ones he has looked at a lot he will usually, but not necessarily always, either nail it spot on or just be 1/4 of an inch out! Rob does have a good flair for working out people's heights, better than I have but he is only human and can make some mistakes.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 27/Nov/17
Rob usually not being more than 1/4" off is merely your own opinion. There are some who believe Rob overlists celebs, and others who believes he underlists them.
Nik said on 26/Nov/17
@ Sandy Cowell - Hi!
Come to think of it, although Tuger does pass for being 6 foot I do think that he could be a little bit shy of this mark so your 5'11.75" estimate could be correct! I don't think he is less than this though because Rob is not usually more than 1/4 of an inch out!
Yes, you are right in that he is a womaniser, he looks very smart in the above photograph but he would look smarter if he took his hands out of his pockets!
I think this 41 year old gentleman can have anywhere from 5'11.75" - 6'0"!
said on 24/Nov/17
Wonder what Henrik Stenson's exact height is. Seeing him up close he easily looked 6'2 to me. Looked pretty close to DJ's height tbh, so it's strange google would list him as only 6'1.
Editor Rob: Stenson has claimed he's 6ft 2.
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Nov/17
@ Nik - Oh, so this is what he looks like! He's very handsome, but isn't he a bit of a womaniser?
I didn't know if he was black or white, tall or small, feline or human!
He can have 5ft11.75.
said on 22/Nov/17
Rob, do you think he has lost any height? Over the years he has sustained many injuries. In 2014 he began experiencing back issues and has even undergone multiple back surgeries.
Editor Rob: I've not seen any evidence for obvious loss in height, but a small fraction with surgery/injury to discs is possible by early 40's...we are talking a few mm's.
Nik said on 22/Nov/17
6'0" seems believable!
cmillzz said on 20/Nov/17
He’s exactly 6 foot even. No more, no less.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Oct/17
said on 4/Oct/17
Rob, looking at old comments I think you actually did have him at 6ft2....
Editor Rob: yeah I think in 2005 he was at that, and been on 6ft for over a decade now.
said on 22/Aug/17
Hey Rob how long do you think his head is? Looks small.
Editor Rob: might be only 9 inches.
breadnbutter said on 25/Jul/17
Ive seen Tiger from a distance, but Ive seen Phil a lot up close. There is absolutely no way hes 6'2. Hes 6'1 at most. From a distance he can look just 6'0.
Vijay Singh is 6'2.
Spencer said on 17/Jul/17
182 cm. Morning 6 footer tho. Mickelson who is a legit 6'2 has always looked about 2 inches taller maybe a little more.
Canson said on 30/Jun/17
@SJH: phelps is def around 189cm in person. I saw him in AC and looked about 2". Looked around the same size as Jarret Jack does "roughly". If anything it's close to where both dip maybe to high 188 at night. May fall under in the evening by a hair but prob still like 6'2.25ish. But with Tiger he looks around 2 or so inches taller. Woods I agree tho could fall under 6'0" at night. He doesn't look the strongest 6 footer out there but looks around it imho
S.J.H said on 29/Jun/17
@Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8)
You have to see him with Barkley. There is massive difference between them. Only 12cm is impossible. 13cm is not enough and i did stick with 181cm. Michael Phelps may not be taller as you think. 1-2cm off listing for many celebs/atletes you can see it with kobe bryant and charles barkley.
Cameron said on 23/Jun/17
bang on 6 feet, looks shorter in this pic due to baggy pants.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 21/Jun/17
Not really. Woods has to be 5'11.75" because he looked it next to Michael Phelps who's 6'2.25" or 6'2.5"
S.J.H said on 21/Jun/17
Barkley look 5.5' taller than Woods to me. Woods is 5'11.25 max
Spencer said on 20/Jun/17
S.J.H said on 16/Jun/17
When he quote about charles barkley not over 6'4 in real it get in my mind that Woods is no way 6'0 at most 5'11.25 and more like 5'11 tops next to barkley if big barkley is 6'4. Lol
Sixfoot2Luke said on 8/Jun/17
In the video at the police station they asked him his hair color, height, and weight. He answered, six foot, 185. Ive seen him in person, he does seem taller but he's never claimed anything taller than 6'.
Canson said on 4/Jun/17
He's about 6' maybe a weak 6' but not less
Supermanis6four said on 30/May/17
What did the latest Police Report say for his height ?? He just got arrested.
LG69 said on 28/May/17
I saw TW in 2005 at the American Express Championship. He walked within 5 feet of me. I'm 69" tall, and Tiger probably had 3" on me. He did have a slight advantage with his golf spikes on. He's no less than 5'11.5"
said on 20/May/17
Rob, would you argue a strong 6'0" footer or a weak 6'0" footer?
Editor Rob: there may well be more chance of a 6ft 1/8th than 5ft 11 7/8th.
Lanaka said on 16/Apr/17
Yeah @ comments far below his ex wife Elin Norgegren is no way 5'10 or 5'11! That is just craaaazzzy! She always in her 2 to 3 inch heels looks 3 to 4 inches shorter than Tiger! Yeah her height is 5'5 to 5'6!
KILOP said on 15/Jan/17
a 5'11 but easily 6'1 in shoes .. id list myself at 6'0.5 if i was him and 6'1 if i had straight and more hair.
HonestSlovene said on 9/Jan/17
5'11.75"/182 cm is probably bang on for him.
said on 24/Dec/16
rob there's a recent photo of him and Trump playing golf together, he looks about 5'11 standing next to trump
Editor Rob: Ariel, if you go to images.google and type donald trump tiger woods, there's certainly a few photos of them. Some of them Trump looks taller, in a few Tiger looks taller.
I do think though, Donald would measure a bit more if push came to shove.
said on 2/Dec/16
Google has him at 6'1 when he's said multiple times he's 6 foot? Google just loves celebs I guess
Editor Rob: google is a Fake Height site.
Imdb isn't that bad because visitors from celebheights update and correct listings. Not as fake as it was in the past...
Canson said on 25/Nov/16
6'0" on a good day. I'd say strong 5'11/weak 6'
S.J.H said on 1/Oct/16
I think bill clinton at 6'0 few years ago edge him out. Woods is 5'11.5
manny said on 25/Sep/16
6 foot and 6'1 in dress shoes I'd say at least a strong 5'11 and that is that any shorter I mean Rob you're prob gonna have to get the tape out lol
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Sep/16
Rose looks 191/192cm zone like Ernie Els and Nick Faldo
Arch Stanton said on 16/Aug/16
Dan Walker, looks a legit 6'6.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Aug/16
The sports presenter Dan I think is around 6'6. looked that with Thierry Henry, and others. He had easily 3 inches on Justin Rose. The most I'd give Rose is 6'3, but a chance of just under it, no way a legit 6'4.
said on 15/Aug/16
Rob, is Justin Rose, the Olympic golf gold medalist worth adding? Doesn't look the legit 6'4 listed. 6'3 maybe.
Editor Rob: not found a claim from him yet
Kevin Brian Heath said on 12/May/16
Ok.... I used to work for Nike and I have been 5'11", and I mean barely 5'11" since forever, and I once stood next to 20 year old Tiger when I was 21... He was not 6'0" or anything of the sort.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Mar/16
I actually stood a few feet from Faldo at the Ryder Cup Tournament in 2006 and he was a little bit shorter than me (about 1in but not more).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Feb/16
I'd give Faldo the full 6ft3 (possibly a strong one in his playing days) and Azinger a strong 6ft2.
said on 10/Feb/16
Rob, howabout this other tall guy Paul Azinger?
In some photos he looks shorter than Nick and in others taller. He's listed 6ft2 in some places. I reckon he's at least that.
Editor Rob: I think Nick would measure taller, paul can look a decent 6ft 2
said on 7/Feb/16
Rob, could you add Nick Faldo?
I notice he has a page on CelebWeights. He looks a genuine 6ft3 guy and could be a fraction over just like Ernie Els
Editor Rob: I'm certain he's claimed 6ft 3 and 4
said on 28/Jan/16
CoolJ said on 31/Jan/06
PGA at 6'1 sounds pretty close to me.
[Editor Rob: actually, come to think...back when he won the masters he got the jacket from Faldo and 186cm looked closer since Faldo in person is a big 6ft 3 guy]
Rob, what height did you start Tiger at here?
Editor Rob: I know in 2008 he was at 6ft 0.5 and from 2009 to now stayed 6ft.
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.]
Panda said on 22/Feb/15
@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.
said on 4/Feb/15
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.
nobody said on 12/Jul/14
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".
176,2Tunman said on 1/Jul/14
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?

183-184 range no less or no more.

Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 22/Apr/14
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.
Jay said on 13/May/14
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
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".

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.
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:
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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Oct/13
"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
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".
norder said on 30/Nov/12
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.
said on 25/Nov/12Click Here
With Tiger Woods. He surely has to be a legit 6'3" guy?

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.

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.]

Woods is nothing under 5ft 11.75 (1.82 m) and looks the height he's listed as.
Alex Frazier said on 21/Nov/11
Great height! Great looks! Now what's his shoe size? Tiger should have pictures of himself with his barefeet up on a table. That would reinvigorate his "hunk status"! Put your best foot forward Tiger.
D said on 9/Oct/11
@ Mike "Tiger is short. He is Thai. People forget that. Lets just say Phil is 6'1" which he is not. Look at these pics..."
First wouldn't open for me. Second one though, Phil is clearly much closer to the camera which makes him appear much taller than he is compared to Tiger, who is further away...it's like the old firshermans trick, you hold the fish way far away from your body so that it is closer to the camera and thus looks bigger. Same concept here, Phil is closer, thus looks much bigger in general (taller, bigger head, way way way wider shoulders etc...) than Tiger.

Tiger gets absolutely towered by Thomas Bjorn, who is listed at 189 cm. When you look at him next to Vijay, Furyk, Ernie, and Phil its just not possible he's under 5'11''. Stricker seems a little taller and he's a solid 6'0'' so I'm gonna go with 182 centimeters for Tiger.
fuzzblaster said on 4/Aug/11
Tiger is under 6'1" because Federer is 6'1" and he's shorter than Fed in all pics.

Hes lucky to be that tall.

Tiger is 5-11. Its plain as day now knowing these other guys real heights and seeing them in person.
Viper said on 13/May/11
Yeah, I admit Vijay looked taller than 6-2 from a distance. But up closer he looked 6-2.
I saw Vijay on tv standing next to 6-4 Dustin Johnson and he looked 2 inches shorter. Hes 6-2
Spence said on 12/May/11
Viper I've seen Vijay in person. He is a big guy. He may be slightly over 6'2. Mickelson is a solid 6'1
Viper said on 10/May/11
Oh and I also saw Stenson again as well. This time he looked his listed height of 6-1 to me. Have no idea how he looked so much taller before.
Spence said on 10/May/11
I think Mickelson is 186. Tiger is 181-82

Saw Jim Furyk and he is a legit 6-2. Vijay is a legit 6-2. Saw both those guys.
Viper said on 9/May/11
I saw Mickelson in person this past week. Hes no taller than 6-1
Paul said on 9/May/11
How much more height do golf shoes give over sneakers? All these 6'0 guys who see Tiger and claim he is the same height as them probably don't take the footwear into account.

Ive seen Henrik Stenson though from some distance and I swear he gave off like a 6-4 impression, and hes listed at 6-1. I think I read somewhere that hes taller, and If thats true thats crazy to see somebody in sports who is actually taller than their listed height.

Geoff Oglivy certaintly looks a legit 6-2. He can even look taller.

Early in his career Woods always got listed as 6'2". Without a doubt I saw this in multiple interviews and magazine listings in the late 1990's.

JackieTreehorn said on 20/Feb/11
Appeared 182-183 viewed next to a slightly elevated tee at Torrey Pines...very close to Rocco who I stood right next to and appeared about 181-182. 182 is my best guess for Woods. Spence is right about Mickelson too...approximately 6-1+change not 6-3.
SolidSnake said on 17/Feb/11
Based on the Gilette adverts he must be 5'11 if Federer is 6'1
Dean said on 14/Feb/11
He is more likely 181 than 183. 182 is the fairest for Tiger..he just doesnt look a 6 footer and has even said himself "about 6ft"..183 is 0.2 over 6ft..if he was 183 at worst at night he'd claim 6'1 or 6.05'...182 would explain him saying about 6ft as its honest. he should get 181 but could even be as low as 181
Spence said on 3/Feb/11
181-82..Obama had too much height on him for him to be 183
Spence said on 15/Jan/11
Pamco Starting to agree with you although I would give him 182..but it is possible he is only 181. He is towered over by Ernie Els..Looked 2 inches shorter than Mickelson who might not even be a full 6'2 more 6'1.5. The Mickelson 6'3 stuff is BS. He was listed at 6'2 his whole career he magically grew an inch in his 30s? He is 6'3 with boots on maybe. He has a thin frame which give an illusion of being taller. The Obama photo did it for me. Obama is 6'1 and looked over an inch taller
Pamco said on 8/Jan/11
said on 17/Dec/10
Rob I don't get how you keep him at 184 with the Obama photo I have..he looks 182...too much evidence 183 should be the listing now but I think 182 is the truth
[Editor Rob: I will label him what he said, an honest 6 foot.]
Spence said on 4/Dec/10
I think he is a solid 5'11 not a full 6 feet

Peyton Manning towers over Tiger Woods in the pictures from the Quail Hollow golf tournament. I would say 6 feet at most for Tiger.
said on 30/Apr/09
Tiger should at least be downgraded to a flat 6-0 here. Hes no taller than 183cm. Hes admitted it and in recent pictures with 6-5 Peyton Manning Peyton has over SIX inches on Tiger Woods in multiple pictures. He makes Tiger look 5-11 actually. Click Here
I also remember Tiger looking barely 6-0 in many pics with 6-1 Roger Federer.
LG69 said on 28/Apr/09
Saw Tiger upclose at the 2005 American Express Championship at Harding Park. I'm 5'10" in sneakers, and when Tiger walked by me(within 3feet)he appeared 6'1". Minus his golf spikes he probably is 6'0.5", at the least he's a solid 6'.

Antron said on 20/Oct/08
Not sure why this is turning into the athlete's height section..but if you do a google search for Michael Phelps height, you get 6'3 almost as much as 6'4." One could be a shoes height. I don't think he's shorter than 6'3" though.
said on 14/Oct/08
They list 6-7 measured Michael Beasley at 6-10 and they listed 6-2 John Starks at 6-5 so why not?
Besides 6-4.75 is basically 6-5 anyway. That figure looks accurate here.
With 6'4 7/8" Michael JordanClick HereClick HereClick HereClick Here
Virtually the same height, in 2 pictures Jordan looks slightly taller but in 1 picture Kobe looks slightly taller. Too close to tell who is taller. Certainly suggests that the 6'4.75" measurement for Kobe could be right.
Kobe and 6'3.75" Dwyane WadeClick HereClick Here
Looks 6-4 with Wade but he appears to be slouching slightly. 6-4.75 seems dead on for Kobe. He's thin at only 200 pounds now so he can appear taller.
Viper said on 13/Oct/08
Kobe has always looked around 6-5 to me anyway. I doubt the NBA would ever list a 6-4 guy at 6-7.
Shaq said on 13/Oct/08
Man 6'4.75" Kobe Bryant just dwarfed Phelps. Phelps must be only about 6-2 max, maybe shorter.
Michael said on 30/Sep/08
I saw all of these guys at the Fred Mayer Challenge in Portland. 1998, I was 5'11" at the time. I saw Jack Nichlaus in person. 5'9 1/2" at his best. Which means Tiger is straching to make it to 6'0" John Daly is listed at 5'11". When I was 5'11" he was an easy 4 inches shorter then me. I could see the top of his head. It shocked me so much I made sure when he passed again I was on level ground. I looked Phil Mickelson in the eye when I was also 5'11. He claims he is 6'2". That is a joke. Now looking at pictures of Phil and Tiger next to each other I dunno if Tiger is 5'11, maybe just the fact he is so slim makes him look bigger on TV.

You're not kidding. Tiger has reportedly benched up to 300 pounds, and can hit a golf ball well over 300 yards.
OutBenchThis said on 24/Sep/08
He could be 6'2" viper...the Kobe pic is a bit confusing as Kobe looks to have 4-5inches on him (given he's leaning in abit) which would put Kobe (assuming Phelps is 6'2") at about 6'6"- 6'6.5" which we know he's not.

Federer is actually 186cm tall....so Woods could very well be 184 or 185...or 184.5...anyways...184.5 has a nice ring to it...I am 183.5 myself :)
JackieTreehorn said on 29/May/08
He has admitted he is only 6' even and shorter than Michelle Wie in an interview a few years back. He compared his 6-2 listing to Charles Barkley's NBA listing. I can see him at 6'0.5 in the morning as a max.
claire said on 26/May/08
Tiger is listed at 6'2 but in most the pics roger federer looks slightly taller and federer is 6'1, i also saw a picture of woods with ray romano who is 6'3 and was 2 inches smaller than ray so i say 6'1.
Viper said on 6/May/08
Hes not 6-1, because 6-1 Roger federer is taller than him in every picture together. Not to mention that Roger is taller than Tiger in that commercial. Tiger is 6-0 at most.
hk said on 5/May/08
he's definatley 6'1, he's always listed as that aswell.
Mike said on 4/May/08
going by Viper's picture, if Woods is a solid 6-6'0.5, then Federer has to be close to 6'2. 6'1.5...
Roger seems really humble too, maybe he rounds his height down to 6'1.

Gonna have to agree with Viper. On the occassions that I've see Tiger in person he appears well built to me. I'm not sure how a 6 foot tall man with broad shoulders, a small waist and muscular physique would not be considered well built.
Viper said on 1/Apr/08
You can look at pictures on getty that shows Roger to have 1, sometimes 2 inches on Tiger. Tiger is 183cm at most.
European said on 1/Apr/08
First of all, with no doubt, Thiery Henry is 6'2. Official sites, also many photos prove that. By the way, just look at the Gillete commercial closely. Tiger Woods has bigger head, torso and the other parts of his body that the rest. I doubt he's more than 185. What is more, Roger Federer is stated as 185. He looks much shorter than Sharapova, who is 188. Therefore the Gillete's commercial is just a Photoshop work, like most of the commercials. Regards.
Viper said on 31/Mar/08
Tiger looks well built to me.
Jeff said on 31/Mar/08
First being tall (over 6 feet) is more often a disadvantage in sports, in life and in general, young people don't see it because they want to be tall because of the medias of this century when they should be built and not tall.
Secondly Tiger's not well built.
Thirdly he is 6 feet tall not more not less.
charlie said on 16/Mar/08
I think you're seeing taller golfers for a few reasons. Equiptment is getting better and it's easier than it has been in the past to get custom clubs for taller players. It is also a distance oriented game right now with average PGA Tour courses being 7300 yards or so. Tall players have an easier time generating distance because of a wider swing arc, and they don't have to try and force the distance with excessive arm, hand, hip speed. Also, we're just getting taller in general. And with the growing popularity of the sport, more people of all sizes will be exposed and have a choice to play where they may have chosen sports that favor height like Basketball or Volleyball.
Would have to agree with Jackie as far as most golfers being about 1" smaller than listing height. I live in central florida and have been to many tour events and have noticed this tendency to inflate height in the tour guide as well.
