Tiger Woods Wins

December 5, 2011 by staff 

Tiger Woods Wins, Tiger Woods’s winless drought ended after 749 days yesterday when he birdied the final two holes for a one-shot victory at golf’s Chevron World Challenge.

The 14-time major tournament champion fired a 3-under-par 69 to finish the invitational tournament he hosts at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California, at 10-under-par 278, one shot ahead of third-round leader Zach Johnson. The tournament is not an official PGA Tour event.

“Was I nervous? Absolutely,” Woods, 35, told reporters after his first tournament win since the Australian Masters in November of 2009. “It’s been a while, but also for some reason it feels like it hasn’t.”

Less than two weeks after his last win two years ago, Woods was involved in a single car crash outside his Florida home. The incident led to an admission by Woods of marital infidelity, which triggered his divorce and the loss of corporate sponsors. His record run atop the world rankings ended, and he changed his swing coach and caddie.

Woods birdied the 10th and 11th holes yesterday to take a two-shot lead over Johnson. After a bogey by Woods at the 12th, Johnson, the 2007 Masters Tournament champion, birdied the next hole to leave the pair tied at 8-under with five holes to play.

They remained co-leaders until the par-5 16th hole, where Johnson sank a putt of about 12 feet for birdie.
