Tiger Woods Wins, Bests Nicklaus Record
The victory was Woods’ third this year after breaking his 30-month dry spell in March.
“There was a time when people were saying I could never win again,” Woods said. “That was, I think, what, six months ago? Here we are.” Woods is currently ranked fourth in the world
“I’d say that he’s playing the best golf in the world right now,” said Bo Van Pelt, who finished the National two strokes behind Woods. The AP notes that the record Woods really wants to beat is the 18 majors won by Nicklaus; Woods has been stuck on 14 since 2008.
