On the 10th anniversary of Tiger Woods winning his 14th major at Torrey Pines, some of golf’s biggest names have been remembering the incredible putt he made to force a US Open play-off.

With Rocco Mediate waiting in the clubhouse on one under par, Woods needed to birdie the 72nd hole to take the tournament into a fifth day, and he gave himself a chance with a pin-high wedge to 12 feet.

Woods went on to edge out the gallant Mediate after 19 holes of a tense play-off the following day, but his putt on the 18th remains one of the most iconic moments of his illustrious career.
