Situation: 2008 U.S. Open Injury: Double stress fracture and torn ACL in knee What happened: Playing on an injured knee, Woods sank a 12-foot birdie to force an 18-hole playoff against Rocco Mediate in the 2008 U.S. Open. Like the day before, Woods would birdie the 18th hole to tie and force the tournament into sudden death, which Woods won on the first hole. Two days later, Woods revealed he would miss the rest of the season because of a double stress fracture of the knee and that he would also have surgery to repair a torn ACL.
