2001: Tiger’s Own Slam

Woods (-18) edged David Duval by two strokes to complete the “Tiger Slam.” Woods held all four major titles at the same time – having won the previous year’s (2000) U.S. Open, Open Championship, and PGA Championship. This was also the first major to award a seven-figure winner’s share ($1.08M).
