07:01 PM ET 06.13 | As the world's number one golfer attempts to reel in Jack Nicklaus, and his 18 major championships, you have to wonder if a victory at Merion might be at the top of Tiger Woods' list because Jack couldn't get 'er done there in 1971, and let one get away to Lee Trevino. You almost get the feeling Tiger would love to have this victory, and is going to show up on Thursday morning ready to play golf. Jack Nicklaus has not only won 18 major championships, he finished as a runner-up, 18 times. Six of those runner-up finishes were to Lee Trevino. The 1971 U.S. Open at Merion was the second of the six. With Tiger Woods standing in shadow of the Golden Bear for most of his career, you have to think that Tiger would love to follow in Trevino's footsteps and pick up his 15th major at a place where Jack couldn't. Merion would provide that incentive, and I look for Tiger to be in the hunt all week. I just wonder if he has a snake in the golf bag for whomever gets close.

Isn't that snake responsible for all his troubles in the first place?
