'Jack,' he said without hesitation.
Asked if he was closing in on 'greatest' status, Woods replied, 'He's at 18, I'm at 14.'
Woods will be gunning for his 15th major title this week at Bethpage Black, site of his second U.S. Open title back in 2002. With Tiger's record of winning at venues he's previously dominated or contended at, could No. 18 come at St. Andrews next July?
If Woods gets No. 15 here this week, his road to breaking Jack’s record at St. Andrews runs through some familiar obstacles:
2009 Open Championship – Turnberry
2009 PGA Championship – Hazeltine, where he finished second to Rich Beem in 2002
2010 Masters – Where he's won four times
2010 U.S. Open – Pebble Beach, where he won by a record 15 strokes in 2000
