Tiger Woods wins Accenture Match Play

Stewart Cink played well but never had a chance. From AP-

MARANA, Ariz. – Tiger Woods still rules the world of golf, perhaps now more than ever. With a record-breaking victory Sunday in the Accenture Match Play Championship, Woods won his fifth straight tournament and captured his 15th World Golf Championship, holding all three world titles for the first time. Golf is not a fair fight at the moment.

Stewart Cink found that out at Dove Mountain, where Woods overwhelmed him with 14 birdies in 29 holes for an 8-and-7 victory, the largest margin in the final in the 10-year history of this tournament.


Woods has won four straight times on the PGA Tour, the third time he has built a streak at least that long. He has set the tournament record for margin of victory in his last three wins.

The next tournaments Tiger is likely to play in- Bay Hill, Doral, The Masters, Wachovia. The first three he has won 3 times or more. Tiger is the defending Wachovia champ. If I were to bet Tiger’s streak were to end, I’d say Bay Hill, Masters, Doral, and then Wachovia. Not that I’d any money on Tiger losing them.

This win sees Tiger pass Arnold Palmer on the all-time win list. Next up is Ben Hogan. Tiger needs one win to tie Ben, two to win. Barring an injury, Tiger will pass Hogan before summer begins.
