Tiger Woods sailed pass Jack Nicklaus on the all-time PGA Tour victory list by winning last night at the AT&T National in Maryland at the age of 36.
He secured his 74th US Tour win by a couple of shots from Bo Van Pelt after a steady final round of 69 leaving him eight under par. He moved his way through the field over the weekend and the final day had a sense of inevitability about it when him and Bo Van Pelt were tied with a few holes to go.
It means Tiger has won more PGA events than any golfer bar Sam Snead, who recorded 82 victories on the Tour.
“To do it at 36, I feel like I have a lot of years ahead of me,” Woods said after his third win of the year.
People said he would never win again six months ago and now he’s won 3 times this year.
Overnight leader Brendon de Jonge had a round of six over par to finish in a share of 11th on one under.
With the Open just around the corner Tiger is priming himself perfectly for the links course in Lytham. Can he do it this time?
