Tiger Ties Jack with Win at Memorial

Tiger Woods has tied Jack Nicklaus with his 73rd tournament win at the Memorial on Sunday. Both are now tied for second all-time in PGA victories behind Sam Snead who has 82.

Woods won the tournament in dramatic fashion. He birdied three of the final four holes to finish the day with a 5-under 67. He overcame a two stroke deficit to beat Rory Sabbatini and hard charging Andres Romero.

Woods made the shot of the tournament when he chipped in from the rough for a birdie on 15 firing up the crowd. According to ESPN, Woods said of the chip-in, that he went for it and pulled it off, saying “it just fell in” and “I didn’t think it was going to get there at one point.” Tournament host Nicklaus called it “the most, unbelievable gutsy shot I’ve ever seen” from the broadcast booth.

In his press conference after his thrilling victory, Woods said he’d leave it up to the press as to whether or not his game was back.

Woods moved up to fourth in the world with his victory. He has 14 majors and in 10 days the U.S. Open begins. Woods has always said that he wants to beat Nicklaus’ record of 18 majors. All of the sudden, again, that doesn’t look far fetched.
