First staged in 1895, the inaugural US Open was won by Englishman Horace Rawlins.
It feels sacrilegious to compete for a Major Championship at Torrey Pines without the indomitable Tiger Woods. Woods is a seven-time Farmers Insurance Champion who has utterly dominated the South Course throughout his career. He memorably won this event when last staged at the South Course in 2008. His characteristic grit was never more evident than when he defied stress fractures in his left leg to see off Rocco Mediate.
