Tiger Woods misses this year’s Open Championship through injury, but his first win back in 2000 remains in the memory.

At the age of just 24, Woods won the first of his three Open Championship at St. Andrew’s in 2000. Taking victory by a massive eight strokes, he set the record for the lowest score to par (-19) in the history of Major tournaments.

He also became the youngest golfer to achieve a Career Grand Slam. Which was nice.
