The suspense coming into the tournament was whether Woods could win his fourth consecutive major championship. Woods had ended 2000 with wins in the U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship. His victory here made if four in a row - and created the "Tiger Slam."
A traditional Grand Slam is winning all four majors in the same year. A "Tiger Slam" is holding all four major championships at the same time, even if they weren't all captured in the same calendar year.
