Where does SportsNation rank Woods' performance?
This was by no means a typical major win for Woods. First, he had to battle back from a four-stroke deficit after the first round of play. He then had to sink a 12-foot birdie to force an 18-hole playoff. Eighteen holes, however, were not enough to determine a champion, as Tiger had to keep battling Rocco Mediate in sudden death before he could claim his third U.S. Open title.
But the story did not end there. In the epilogue, one day after winning the U.S. Open, it was revealed that Woods would undergo season-ending knee surgery to repair a torn ACL and fractures in his leg.
With this new information out, where does Woods' performance rank now?
