From ESPN.com: A Torrey Story: Woods’ win was greatest U.S. Open ever
“It’s pressure, there’s no doubt,” Woods said. “I was nervous, and that’s a good thing. That means you care. You can try and use that energy as best you can to heighten your focus.”
Tiger’s greatness is his ability to overcome the pressures of the moment and not succumb to the nervousness that strikes everyone else. Tiger, hit two critical putts two days in a row on the 18th hole. If he misses either, he loses the tournament. Tiger doesn’t miss those.
