For Tiger Woods his quest for golf’s most elusive benchmark comes down to a familiar tenent – location, location, location.
If the 2010 major lineup was always going to be the Grand Slam equivalent of low-hanging fruit for the world No. 1 – with stops at Augusta National and Pebble Beach on the road to Jack Nicklaus’ 18 majors – this week’s return to the storied links at St. Andrews was billed in pre-Nov. 27 terms as a formality if not a foregone conclusion.
And Woods knows it. Asked last month if he could pick one venue where he would like to play all four majors, Woods replied, “I'd probably pick St. Andrews all four times.”
