Woods Ends Winless Streak by Winning at the Arnold Palmer Invitational
Tiger Woods ended his longest winless streak by defeating Graeme McDowell with a five shot victory in the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida. This was his first PGA Tour win after the scandal he was involved in 2009 which lead to his downfall in sports.
Woods finished with a 2 under 70 and winning by five shots over McDowell. During his turn to putt in the 18th hole Woods was all smiles as he tapped his putter knowing that the win ends his PGA Tour drought is about to end. As the ball fell in to the cup Woods screamed out and hugged his caddie LaCava. Wood said it was not like winning a major championship but it felt good to win again.
Woods is now up to No. 6 in the world and his first time to return to the top ten since May 22. Woods thanked his fans and everyone who was watching the game. Woods finished 13 under 275 for his 72nd PGA Tour win, just one short of Jack Nicklaus record for a second place in the career list, but it’s not the position that Woods want. Woods has 14 majors just four short of Nicklaus standard and woods will try to end a four year drought by hoping to win in the Masters which will start in April.
