  • After holding off a late fightback by Mediate to clinch the title at the 91st hole on a sun-kissed day at Torrey Pines, Woods said he would take a break to rest his painful left knee.

    "I'm glad I'm done," the world number one told reporters after winning his 14th major championship, and a third US Open crown.

    "I really don't feel like playing any more. It's a bit sore."
