Tiger wins a 14th Major title.
Tiger Woods has won his 14th Major title yesterday when he edged Rocco Mediate during the first extra hole of this extra round of the U.S. Open played at the Torrey Pines club.
It was not an easy one because Tiger had to overcome a sore knee and a two month inactivity. With a three strokes lead after the tenth hole, we all thought that it was in the bag for Woods.
But Rocco Mediate was playing the tournament of his career. He registered three consecutive birdies to erase Tiger's lead then he even took a one stroke lead going on the 18th hole. But Tiger once again tied the matchup on the 18th to finally win during the first extra hole of this extra round.
The victory counts as the 14th Major title for Woods who is now only four behind the great Jack Nicklaus who has won eighteen Majors during his career.
