The 2000 Open Championship was the 129th Open Championship, held 20–23 July at the Old Course at St Andrews in St Andrews, Scotland. Tiger Woods, 24, won his first Open Championship and fourth major title, eight strokes ahead of runners-up Thomas Bjørn and Ernie Els. With the victory, Woods became the youngest ever to win all four of golf's major championships, passing Jack Nicklaus by two years. Woods became the fifth player to complete the feat, known as the "career grand slam." In doing so, he also achieved the lowest 72-hole score in relation to par of −19, which was a record for all major championships until Jason Day broke it at the 2015 PGA Championship, finishing –20.
Woods became the sixth to win the U.S. Open and the Open Championship in the same year, joining fellow Americans Bobby Jones (1926, 1930), Gene Sarazen (1932), Ben Hogan (1953), Lee Trevino (1971), and Tom Watson (1982).
It was the first Open Championship to be telecast in high-definition television in any country, being telecast in the United States by ABC Sports that year.
