Tiger cap­tures crown


Tiger Woods cap­tured the WGC- Cadil­lac Cham­pi­onship at the Blue Mon­ster course Sun­day with a clos­ing round of one- un­der 71 for a two- shot vic­tory over fel­low Amer­i­can Steve Stricker. Woods earned his 76th ca­reer PGA Tour win and posted his sec­ond vic­tory of the year as he steps up his game ahead of the up­com­ing Masters tour­na­ment in April. Woods im­proved to 40- 2 with the out­right lead go­ing into the fi­nal round on the PGA Tour, fend­ing off a starstud­ded leader­board on Sun­day to fin­ish at 19un­der 269. The 14- time ma­jor cham­pi­onship win­ner Woods sank his fi­nal putt, picked up the ball and put it in his right pocket be­fore wav­ing his black cap to the crowd on No. 18. " I played well this week," said Woods, who col­lected $ 1.5 mil­lion in prize money. " It was one of those weeks where I felt good about the way I was play­ing and I made some putts. I pretty much got it rolling." The 37- year- old Woods posted his 17th ca­reer WGC vic­tory, though it was only his first in four years. He has not won a ma­jor ti­tle in al­most five years but hopes to change that with a win in the 77th Masters run­ning April 1114.
