|"I kept telling myself, 'I've done this before,'" Tiger Woods said of his preshot routine Sunday before a 25-foot putt to win.|
Tiger Woods has won five straight PGA Tour events, not counting his victory at the Dubai Desert Classic on the European Tour or the silly-season Target World Challenge.
|Arnold Palmer Invitational||1||Match Play Championship||1|
|Deutsche Bank Championship||T-2|
|WGC -- Bridgestone Invitational||1|
The Sunday flag at Bay Hill is not one to fire at. It sits on a little slither of the green, guarded by water on the right. But play too safe to the left and you can find yourself in a bunker. "I played aggressive to a conservative spot," Woods said. "I wanted to make sure I made a very aggressive swing, and I was aiming at a tower, probably 15, 20 feet left of the hole. Just hit the ball on that tower. ... And it turned out absolutely perfect. That was the best swing I made all week." That set up the final-hole dramatics, where Palmer stood on a hill overlooking the green and remarked to those around that he expected the putt to drop. And, of course, it did.
