Tiger Woods wins 82nd Tour title

first_imgRelatedPosts Woods, Manning beat Mickelson, Brady in charity match Woods, Mickelson, Manning, Brady set for showdown Woods to be inducted into 2021 Hall of Fame Tiger Woods is back on the history trail. The 43-year-old duly converted his advantage in the rain-delayed Zozo Championship in Japan on Monday and so celebrated equalling Sam Snead’s record of 82 wins on the PGA Tour.Adam Scott, the former world No 1, spoke for everyone in the game when he said: “Tiger never ceases to amaze.” This was Woods’ first event in nine weeks and his first since a fifth knee operation, but he shrugged off the rust in emphatic style for his first title since his Masters resurrection in April.A 67 gave him a 19-under total and a three-shot victory in Tokyo over local favourite Hideki Matsuyama, with Rory McIlroy three shots further back in third. When Woods was in the midst of his back problems a few years ago, Snead’s mark seemed to be safe, along with Jack Nicklaus’s record major haul of 18.Yet now, with the spinal fusion such a success and his most recent procedure also looking like it has given him fresh impetus, everything in the immortality stakes is all up for grabs again.“Well, it’s a big number,” Woods said. “I didn’t know if I would ever play again. I was just hoping to be able to walk normal again. To be able to go through all that to get to where I’m at now, I’m very appreciative. I know how it feels to have this game, you know, what I felt like, taken away from me, where I couldn’t participate in the way that I wanted to. Just so happy and so fortunate to be able to have this opportunity again.“This week was a good sign for the future. Certainly the future looks brighter than it has and hopefully I can be as consistent as Sam [who won his last PGA Tour when he was 52 was] well into my 40s and early 50s. It is just crazy. It is a lot.“I have been able to be consistent most of my career and have put myself up there with a chance to win on a number of occasions. There was plenty of times I didn’t but today was one of those days where I was able to pull it out.”Woods climbs to sixth in the world rankings and has made his own task as Presidents Cup captain that much easier. Woods picks his four wildcards for the match against the Internationals in Melbourne next week and there can be no doubt he should and shall pick himself.
