Woods To Chase Nicklaus Record

SAN FRANCISCO — This week marks the four-year anniversary since Tiger Woods last won a major championship, but even if he were to win the 112th U.S. Open, the winner of 14 Grand Slam events said the questions about his status in the game would persist.

“I think even if I do win a major championship, it will still be, you’re not to 18 yet, or when will you get to 19,” Woods said during a news conference following a practice round Tuesday at the Olympic Club. “I’ve dealt with that my entire career, ever since I was an amateur and playing all the way through and to professional golf, it hasn’t changed.”

Woods, 36, has been stuck on 14 major titles since winning the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in a playoff over Rocco Mediate.
