Love him or hate him for his off the course life choices or his sometimes over the top on the course antics there is no denying his greatness.
While Tiger had already lived up to the hype that surrounded him before he teed it up in the 2000 US Open that day he changed the game forever. He played the weekend at Pebble Beach in a way no other competitor or the USGA could even imagine. At the time he set the lowest 72 hole score in relation to par in the 100 year history of the US Open.
What was even more impressive is that while Tiger shot 12 under par the second place finisher was at three over. That’s right he was the only player under par and boy was he under. He took otherwise challenging US Open conditions and dominated them, he put on a clinic for all four rounds in route to his third major title. Just sit back and relive the highlights from the 2000 US Open and remember what greatness is.
