Tiger Woods Wins Target World Challenge

December 16, 2007

Tiger Woods won the final golf tournament of the year today, closing with a 4-under 68 and with this score matched the tournament record at the Target World Challenge and also set a record for the largest margin of victory, by seven shots over Masters champion Zach Johnson. This makes him the first player to win consecutive titles at this year-end tournament for an elite, 16-man field.

The only real challenge came from Jim Furyk , who got within two shots after nine holes. But the tournament changed on the 10th when Woods holed a 12-foot birdie putt, and Furyk three-putted for bogey.

“You don’t start six down to Tiger very often and cut it to two, so I had a really good opportunity,” Furyk said. “And I wasn’t able to take advantage of it.”

Tiger Woods earned $1.35 million, that will be donated to his Tiger Woods Foundation.
