Tiger's incredible comeback at Memorial makes history

Posted:

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) -- With a remarkable rally even by his standards, Tiger Woods birdied three of his last four holes to win the Memorial on Sunday and match tournament host Jack Nicklaus with his 73rd title on the PGA Tour.

Woods was one shot behind and looking at probable bogey in deep rough behind the 16th green when he chipped in from 50 feet for birdie to tie for the lead. In the group behind him, Rory Sabbatini made bogey from the bunker on the 16th hole and never caught up.

Woods closed with a 5-under 67, matching the best score of the final round. He won the Memorial for the fifth time. Woods and Nicklaus are tied for second place in career wins on tour, trailing Sam Snead at 82.
