Tiger Woods is defending his title at the U.S. Open and his turf at Bethpage Black.

Twenty years have passed since Curtis Strange became the last player to win consecutive U.S. Opens, the longest current drought among the four majors. Woods will have a chance for the third time this decade.

It has been even longer since a U.S. Open champion tried to repeat on a golf course where he was the last player to win. That was Jack Nicklaus in 1973 at Oakmont, where his hopes ended when Johnny Miller shot 63 in the final round to win.

Typical of Woods, plenty of history is at stake when the 109th U.S. Open gets under way on Thursday.

He is trying to tie the record with a fourth U.S. Open title, and join Willie Anderson from a century ago as the only players to win the national championship four times in a decade.

A victory would also give him a Grand Slam of repeats. Woods already has won back-to-back in the Masters (2001-02), British Open (2005-06) and twice in the U.S. PGA Championship (1999-2000 and 2006-07).

He doesn't believe knee surgery slowed his march toward Nicklaus' record 18 majors, rather helped in the long run.

"It's five to pass him, four to tie him," Woods said. "That's a lot. Most of the guys in my generation haven't won more than three, so it's quite a challenge. I probably wouldn't have had as good a chance to put myself in position ... if I hadn't had the surgery. My leg was deteriorating the past couple of years. I'm healthy enough where I think I can give it go."

The 2009 US Open is expected to be a heavily bet on event.  Early traffic suggests this will indeed be the case.
