No, Tiger Woods's run of four straight majors is not a Grand Slam. Counting his win in the Players Championship, I call it the Quintessential Quintuple. If Woods wins the U.S. Open in June, his majors streak will surpass Byron Nelson's 11 consecutive victories as the greatest feat in the history of golf. I would then bet on him to complete the Slam this year because his special gift is this: The more he wants it, the better he plays.
