Tiger Woods had a 75 percent chance of winning this category, and thanks to your vote his record of 142 consecutive events without missing a cut on the PGA Tour stands as the Best Record-Setting Performance of the Decade – if but by a few votes.

Officially, the streak began after the 1998 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, when Woods withdrew after two rounds instead of returning nearly seven months later to complete the rain-delayed tournament, which made a cut after 54 holes.

It came to an end seven years later at the 2005 Byron Nelson Championship, when Woods missed a 15-foot par putt on the final hole of Round 2 to miss the cut by one shot.

In between, there were no fewer than 15 close calls, but each time Woods did what was necessary to stick around for the weekend. In the end, the tally was 29 tournaments greater than Byron Nelson's streak of 113 events without missing a cut.

Woods' mark will likely never be broken, standing up to the likes of other great runs in sports: Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak, Cal Ripken playing in 2,632 consecutive games and UCLA's men's basketball team winning 88 in a row.
