Tiger Woods streaks even with Ben Hogan with win at Bay Hill
A long putt for birdie on 18 secured the Arnold Palmer Invitational title for Tiger Woods, cementing his fifth straight PGA Tour win. The title, Woods’ 64th, tied him with Ben Hogan on the tour’s career list.
The 25-footer pushed Woods ahead of challenger Bart Bryant and led to a celebration, which included Woods backpedaling as the ball closed on the hole, followed by him throwing his hat down and letting out a roar.
“I was like, ‘How in the hell did he get my hat?’” Woods said after caddie Steve Williams handed him his hat. “Evidently, it came off. I need to see the highlights. I was so into the moment of the putt going in and winning the golf tournament.”
Woods closed with a 4-under 66 and finished at 10-under 270. Bryant finished 9 under, followed by three tied for third at -7: Sean O’Hair, Cliff Kresge and Vijay Singh.
