Woods Wins another WGC, Wins by 8


Tiger Woods has captured another victory after shooting another 67 to win the American Express by 8 strokes over the nearest competitor. This win ties Woods' longest consecutive winning streak, having won six consecutive PGA Tour events for a second time in his career. Tiger fired another 67 to safely claim and extend his lead at a week total of 23 under par. Woods shot for the four days rounds of 63-64-67-67 on the par 71 course. Woods has now not lost a stroke play event of any kind since the Cialis Western Open in July, where he came up short finishing second to South African Trevor Immelman. Tiger was not able to eagle the par 5 18th for the fourth time in a row, having only a birdie on that hole. Tiger's three consecutive eagles would be one of the greatest achievments on a single hole, finishing seven under for that par 5. Second place went to Englishmen Ian Poulter, who was 8 strokes back of Tiger. Poulter's season is getting hot as it ends as he follows a win at the Madrid Masters two weeks ago with a second place in this World Golf Championship. The American Express at the Grove gives a huge purse, $7.5 million and $1.35 million going to winner Tiger Woods. The event had an early start today in order to beat bad weather, but was delayed for over an hour. The World Golf Championships have been known to give exemptions to little known players on some of the worldwide tours. Thonghai Jaidee of Thailand, a virtual unknown qualifying by winning the Carlsberg Malaysian Open, had a strong perfomance on Sunday to move to 9th place and cash a huge check. Tiger likely will play only one more PGA Tour event in 2006, that being the Tour Championship.
