Well, we finally got what we were looking for. After 3 so-so rounds, the final round was filled with high drama on the back nine. While Retief Goosen, Jason Gore, and Olin Browne were all self-destructing with rounds of 81, 84, and 80, Michael Campbell played some solid golf and made some incredible putts on the back nine today.

Meanwhile, Tiger Woods was making a semi-charge, pulling himself back from +5 to +1 at one point. Tiger then proceeded to do something that we’ve almost never (if ever) seen him do in a major: he shot himself in the foot, with two bogeys on 16 and 17 after screwing up a chip and 3 putting the next green. Tiger birdied the 18th to make things a little interesting, but Michael Campbell birdied the 17th a minute or two later to seal the deal on his first major. After winning the tournament, Michael was in tears. He said it meant so much to him, everything he’s being working for all these years. During the post-round interview, he admitted that he was nervous basically the entire back nine.
