||Tiger Woods wins the 100th US Open at Pebble Beach by a record 15 shots, the highest ever winning margin in a major championship. His total of 272, at 12-under-par, remains the lowest score in relation to par at any US Open. Woods won wire-to-wire, with rounds of 65, 69, 71 and 67, for leads of 1, 6 and shots going into the second, third and final rounds. For the record, Ernie Els and Miguel Angel Jiménez were joint runners-up on 3-over par.
This tournament was the beginning of the so-called 'Tiger Slam', as he went on to win the 2000 Open and PGA Championships and the 2001 Masters, to become the first man to hold all four major championship trophies simultaneously.
