July 17, 2005: Tiger Woods finishes at 14-under 274 to win his 10th major, the British Open at St. Andrews.

Woods won by five strokes. This was the largest margin of victory in any major since his 2000 British Open, where he was eight strokes ahead of the rest of the field.

Once he took the lead on the ninth hole in the Open's first day of play, he never looked back. Woods stood atop the leaderboard for the final 63 holes of the tournament.

On the final day of play, Woods was able to make two-putt birds on two occasions. As everybody around him collapsed, he proved to the world that he deserved his number-one ranking back.

The win was Woods' fourth victory of 2005, and his second major in a four-month span. It was also significant because he joined Jack Nicklaus as the only golfers to win the career Grand Slam twice.

Although there was no defining moment from the tournament, Woods' dominant effort helped remind people of the man who captured seven out of 11 majors.
