Zach Johnson Finishes One Shot Back of Tiger
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) - Two years after his personal life
and golf career came crashing down, Tiger Woods is a winner again.
One shot behind with two holes to play, Woods closed with clutch
birdie putts Sunday to win the Chevron World Challenge by one shot
over former Masters champion Zach Johnson.
Woods holed a 6-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for a 3-under
69, sweeping his arm and slamming down his fist in a celebration
that was a long time coming.
It was the 83rd title worldwide for Woods, but his first since
the Australian Masters on Nov. 15, 2009, a span of 749 days and 26
official tournaments. Woods crashed his car outside his home on
Thanksgiving night two years ago, followed by shocking revelations
of extramarital affairs.
