By winning tthe Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill today.
Tiger Woods sank a 24-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational, extending his USPGA Tour winning streak to five straight tournaments.
The 13-time major winner fired a final round four-under 66 to reach 10-under 270 overall and beat fellow American Bart Bryant (67) by one stroke.
Woods produced another piece of brilliance by hitting his approach shot to 24-feet at the par-four 18th.
He then sank the curling putt to edge Bryant at Bay Hill.
He carded 66 to finish at 10-under-par 270, posting his sixth consecutive official victory during an amazing six-month winning streak.
It is his 63rd victory on the PGA Tour, tied for third on the all-time list with Ben Hogan, behind only Sam Snead and Jack Nicklaus.
Going into today’s final round, I suspected Bryant would be the one to challenge Tiger today. Bryant made a serious run at derailing Woods, but Tiger beat him off. While Tiger won at Bay Hill each year from 2000-2003, this looked like the most likely week for his winning streak to end.
Next week is the World Golf Championship- CA Championship at Doral in Miami Florida. Tiger is defending champion, the next event for him after that is The Masters. Uhhh….when will the streak end?
