Woods' invincibility never seemed so far away

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – For nostalgic types, today is an anniversary worth noting.

Seven years ago today, Tiger Woods beat a guy named Rocco to win his 14th major and third U.S. Open title. Maybe it’s more compelling that Tiger’s one-legged effort at Torrey Pines was also the last time he hoisted Grand Slam glory, as well as the last time the U.S. Golf Association held its national championship on a seaside West Coast municipal layout.

Not that Woods was in a nostalgic mood when he spoke with the media on Tuesday at Chambers Bay.

Through all the trials and few triumphs in recent years, Woods has maintained a singular ideology. On Tuesday, the edges may have changed but the message remained familiar when he was asked what he still had to accomplish in his career.

“More wins,” he said. “That’s why I’m still playing.”
