Tiger Woods' win on a dramatic Sunday at the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass -- his 78th title in 300 tournaments played -- was the latest chapter in an already historic career. (Incidentally, he also won in his 100th and 200th career starts.)

But when Tiger was 14, he was just like you and me.

Here a photo of Woods playing The Legend of Zelda for the NES from a 1990 feature for Trans World Sport. The entire six-minute piece is worth a watch.

(Quick hint to Tiger: North, west, south, west to find your way out of those woods.)
