Tiger Woods prepares to tee off on the first day of the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course, where he'd defeat Rocco Mediate in a playoff to win the 2008 title despite a badly injured knee. Woods would take the rest of the year off to have surgery and recover. He won six times in eight starts worldwide.
