Title: Tiger has one last shot at a major

Description: ROCHESTER, NY On a pleasant Tuesday afternoon in upstate New York, Tiger Woods changed everything he’s ever believed about what it means to be a champion golfer. PGA TOUR WIN LEADERS Collecting trophies is a habit of Tiger Woods. He's now four shy of Sam Snead's record. Since he was a boy and pinned Jack Nicklaus’ record on his bedroom wall, Woods has dreamed of eclipsing the Golden Bear’s 18 majors. Majors, as Woods reminded us Tuesday, “are the biggest events with the most pressure, the best fields on the most difficult golf courses.” Rest assured, his boyhood dreams were never about beating Sam Snead’s record of 82 PGA Tour wins -- a mark Woods is just three victories shy of after blitzing the field at last week’s Bridgestone Invitational. It’s always been about majors for Tiger, which is fine as long as you’re winning them. But it’s been more than five years since Woods last won one; it didn’t take Stanley Kubrick this long to make a movie. The oh-for-17 major-less streak — by a touchdown the longest drought of his career — has, it seems, turned Woods into something of a shell man, because he’s decided to change the location of the pea right before our eyes. On countless occasions, Woods has said that a great year requires that he win at least one major. But on the eve of his last chance to capture that elusive 15th major, this week’s PGA Championship at venerable Oak Hill, the great Tiger Woods downsized. “I think winning one major championship automatically means you had a great year,” he said. “Even if you miss the cut in every tournament you play in, you win one, you're part of history. “This year, for me, I think it's been a great year so far for me, winning five times, and you look at the quality of tournaments I've won, a Players and two World Golf Championships in there, that's pretty good.”
