Tiger Woods wrapped up his 76th PGA Tour Title today at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. He finished 1 under on the day bringing his score -19, two strokes ahead of second place finisher Steve Stricker. After recently winning at Torrey Pines, Woods continued his dominance at Doral, leading from start to finish to grab his 17th World Golf Championship.
It was the first time in five years that Woods has two wins before the Masters, and he hopes to keep the momentum rolling into Augusta. Tiger stated “That’s how I know I can play. That’s the thing. To be able to bring it out a couple of times so far this year — and then be able to close and get the Ws on top of that — that’s nice. Any time I can win prior to Augusta, it always feels good.” Woods is now within reach to return to the number one ranked player in the world, but it wasn’t without a little help.
Friend and opponent Steve Stricker gave Woods a 45 minute lesson on putting Wednesday afternoon before the tournament started. Who knows if that contributed to Woods 27 birdies on the day, but seeing as Stricker ended up finishing second behind Woods, I’m sure he won’t be getting any more putting lessons anytime soon. Tiger Woods now looks to carry his momentum into the Masters where he will be sure to be one of the favorites, and hope to end the longest major-less drought of his career at Augusta.
