The 119th U.S. Open at Pebble Beach has the makings of a classic as Tiger Woods returns to the scene of a signature triumph to take on a new generation of stars led by two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka. Koepka, 29, has a chance to do what only one golfer has done before him -- win a third straight U.S. Open title.Jack Nicklaus won the first U.S. Open staged at Pebble Beach in 1972 .Woods triumphed in 2000 by a crushing 15 strokes -- still a major championship record -- and Graeme McDowell ended Europe's 40-year U.S. Open drought when he was the last man standing with a classic U.S. Open total of even par 284 in 2010 .Woods won the same tournament at least three straight years six times in five tournaments, so it's perhaps no wonder he returns to Pebble 19 years after his 2000 triumph in the title mix.
