Orlando (Florida): Champions golfer Tiger Woods brought an end to his two and half year title drought at the PGA Tour after he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational at the Bay Hill Course here on Sunday ringing a warning bell to all the golfers taking part in next month’s Masters to be played at the Augusta National Golf Club.
The former world number one shot carded a two under 70 to finish at 13 under par overall and win the tournament by five strokes. This was the American’s 72nd PGA Tour Title and first since the BMW Championship in Sept. 2009.
Graeme McDowell of Ireland and England's Ian Poulter finished second and third with five and seven shots behind Woods respectively.
This win came after the rough path he went through following his sex scandal revelations.
Woods made four birdies including a 13 feet putt on the 15th and two bogeys. He was leading by four strokes in the front nine and played it safe in the back nine to win the tournament.
Woods is now in perfect shape for the Masters and is all set again to chase Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 majors.
