Woods ties Nicklaus' career win record with Memorial win
Washington, Jun 4 (ANI): Tiger Woods spectacularly overhauled Spencer Levin and Rory Sabbatini with a few moments of magic to win his 73rd PGA Tour title at the Memorial tournament and match Jack Nicklaus for career PGA Tour wins.
Two shots behind with three holes to play, his ball in an impossible spot behind the 16th green, Woods holed a flop shot from 50 feet away that turned bogey into birdie and sent him on his way to a stunning comeback Sunday in the Memorial, the tournament founded by Nicklaus.
"Boy, I hit it good today. That was some good stuff out there. I hardly missed a shot today. I had the pace of the greens really nice today and I made a few putts," a beaming Woods said.
Woods birdied three of the last four holes for a five-under-par 67 and a nine-under total of 279, moving past Nicklaus into outright second place in the all-time standings for career victories on the U.S. circuit, CBS News reports.
Nicklaus has 72 PGA Tour wins while Sam Snead leads the way with 82.
The shot also surprised Nicklaus. "The most unbelievable, gutsy shot I've ever seen. Look at the position he was in. If he's short, the tournament is over. If he's long, the tournament is over. He puts it in the hole," he said from the TV booth.
Woods won for the second time this year, and moved to No. 4 in the world. (ANI)
