Magic on the 18th Hole - He is Back!
What more is there to say, He is Tiger Woods.
Tiger Woods made a 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole Sunday to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard by one shot, extending his PGA TOUR winning streak to five and keeping intact a perfect season in golf.
Not since Bay Hill in 2001 has Woods won a PGA TOUR event with a birdie on the 72nd hole to win by a shot.
The fans stood four deep to be a part of the final round of this year's Arnold Palmer Invitational. They were not disappointed.
Next up is the World Golf Championships-CA Championship at Doral, which he has won six times. No wonder some are starting to question whether he will lose again.
Woods closed with a 6-under 66 and won Bay Hill for the fifth time in his career, becoming the first player in PGA TOUR history to win four tournaments at least five times.
The last time he played, he surpassed Palmer on the career list. This one allowed him to join Hogan, who won 64 times over 21 years, the last victory coming at the 1959 Colonial National Invitational.
At the end of the 18th there was a personal moment between Arnold and Tiger, where Mr. Palmer, grinning from ear to ear, commented on something he had told Tiger last year.
"It's pretty amazing to be in that kind of company," Woods said. "I've had an amazing run in my career, and hopefully, it continues."
His first interview with only a few words, included "It is good to be back in contention".
Was there ever any question on anyone's mind? That was rhetorical. No need to answer.
