Tiger Woods Wins
Tiger Woods won by 8 and tied Palmer. He joined some elite company Sunday, even though he might as well have been playing alone. He thrilled the four-deep gallery with an improbable flop shot from the muck of the trampled grass behind the ninth green to save par. He sent Torrey Pines' into delirium with a 60 ft birdie putt that started in one direction and slid into the cup from the other. He made three straight bogeys on the back nine, a rarity for him when he's in the lead. All in all, it was his 62nd career victory, tying him with Arnold Palmer for fourth place on the tour list.
