Thursday is the 20-year anniversary of Tiger Woods' first US Amateur
Throwback Thursday indeed with a young, skinny Tiger Woods coming from way, way back to win a wild US Amateur in 1994.
On August 28, 1994 -- exactly 20 years ago Thursday -- Tiger Woods won a crazy US Amateur finale against Trip Kuehne. The above cover from Golf World was just part of the aftermath of spoils for Woods.
"A U.S. Amateur comeback victory that bordered on the impossible: six down after 13 holes of the 36-hole match-play final, five down with 12 holes remaining, three down going to the final nine."
Woods would go on to win the next two US Amateurs as well.
More from SI:
"There was more history made on this day, as Woods became the youngest winner of the oldest golf championship in the U.S. His name will go on the Havemayer Trophy alongside those of former Amateur champions like Jack Nicklaus, who is one of five golfers who have won the prestigious U.S. Amateur at the age of 19."
And here's a look at young Tiger in 1994 and beware because he talks exactly the same as he does now:
