Tiger unlocked one of the biggest achievements of his life at the 2000 US Open when he broke the 138-year-old record of Old Tom Morris for the largest margin of victory for any Major which Tom made during the time of the American Civil War. He was in competition on the field with players like Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson, but Woods surpassed everyone and established his dominance at Pebble Beach.

The weather was not at all in favor as conditions such as fog had already caused delays. But with the help of many good shots like a triple-bogey 7 on the third hole, a 12-foot par putt, and some other exceptional techniques, Woods took home the shiny US Open trophy that Saturday. He even made the lowest score ever of 65, ever shot at Pebble Beach for a U.S. Open. He took his numbers to double digits when no one was able to make par.
