Woods Takes Wachovia


Only 5 years old, but already, the Wachovia Championship is being regarded as one of the best stops on the Professional Golf Association Tour with it's world-class golf course and very strong and deep field. It's a tournament that looks and feels like a golf major and now has a winner whose career is defined by them.

Tiger woods added the Wachovia Championship to his impressive resume of 57 victories. His winning score was 13-under 275, the lowest winning score in the golf tournaments history and with it's $1.134 million first prize pushed Tiger to the top of the FedEx Cup standings. It was his ninth win in his last 12 Professional Golf Association Tour starts dating back to last year's U.S. Open.

Tiger made the final day interesting with an early birdie, eagle, birdie run that began to look like a run-a-way golf victory  but then a double bogey let Steve Stricker back into it. Stricker was only one golf shot behind with three to play but trouble on 16, 17 and 18 doomed his chances. Tiger fished with a par put from 8 feet on 18 to secure the 2 stroke golf victory.

Rory Sabbatini, who was paired with Woods in the final twosome said he had wanted Tiger for the final pairing, but couldn't backup the talk, didn't make a par till the 10th hole and finished with a 74, tied for third with Phil Mickelson who closed with a 70 but was never a factor.
