Largest margin U.S. Open victory

25 Jun, 2000

Woods sets the record for the largest margin of victory in a major championship by winning by 15 shots at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. He sets or ties nine U.S. Open records while finishing the week at 12-under par. He becomes the first player ever to win a U.S. Junior Amateur, U.S. Amateur and U.S. Open.

Records are great, but you don’t really pay attention to that. The only thing I know is I got the trophy sitting right next to me. To perform the way I did, and on one of the greatest venues in golf, it doesn’t get much better than that.
