Tiger Woods has 14 major championships, but perhaps the one that stands out the most (as far as superhuman accomplishments are concerned) is the 2008 U.S. Open.
During the tournament, Tiger Woods was in significant pain. As it turned out, he played a total of 91 holes with a torn ACL and double stress fracture in his left leg.
With a course set up to give players the toughest test of golf imaginable, the U.S. Open is hard enough as it is. Add in debilitating leg injuries, plus 19 extra holes (thanks to a playoff with Rocco Mediate), and you have one of the greatest showings of pain tolerance in the history of tournament golf.
The 2008 U.S. Open wasn’t the 1998 Masters or the 2001 U.S. Open, both of which he won by staggering margins.
In many ways, this performance may have been even more impressive, given that he was essentially playing on one leg for five days.
