Tiger Woods' first U.S. Open victory was arguably the best performance by a golfer in major championship history. If it's not No. 1, it's very close.

Woods dominated Pebble Beach and the field. His lead after the first round was one; after the second round, six; after the third round, 10. And he finished with a 15-stroke margin of victory.

Tiger was the only player under par, and he was 12-under par.

This victory started Woods' "Tiger Slam" streak of winning four consecutive majors.
