In more audacious days, Tiger Woods famously defied his doctors. "I'm playing in the U.S. Open," Woods said three years ago, dismissing any suggestion that he give his tattered left knee a proper rest. "And I'm going to win. " And so he did, sprinkling enough fabulous shots through five agonizing days at Torrey Pines to take Rocco Mediate to a playoff and then prevail in 19 holes. It remains the most recent of his 14 major crowns — and arguably his most extraordinary. Compare that to Tuesday's words as Woods took himself out of next week's Open at Congressional.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — A month ago at Pebble Beach, Phil Mickelson did the nearly unthinkable when he played the first round of the U.S. Open without a birdie. On Thursday, it almost happened again. Despite benign conditions that didn't worsen until after he made the turn at the Old Course, Mickelson couldn't get a birdie putt to fall until the final hole of a 1-over-par 73. That left him trailing 96 other golfers, in a fight to make the cut with worse weather on the way. "I fought hard today," Mickelson told ESPN in his only interview.
