“I don’t know how I did it. My ACL was gone. My leg was broken. When I finished the rounds, it was not fun to try and get my leg drained so I could play the next day. But these are all things I tried to do because I knew that was going to be my last event. I was going to have to have reconstruction on my ACL, so I was down for nine months, possibly 12. I put all my energy into winning one event and somehow pulled it off.”

That a decade has now passed since he claimed his 14th, and last, major championship would be a notable enough anniversary were it not for the incredible backdrop to his US Open triumph at Torrey Pines. Victory is not supposed to be so painful.
