SYNOPSIS
When his good buddy Mark O'Meara opened with a 66, Tiger Woods found himself one stroke off the pace. He lost ground with an even-par 72 in the second round but used a 68 on Saturday to move into a tie for the lead with Justin Leonard and Loren Roberts. Neither of those broke par in the final round so the oldest PGA TOUR event outside the majors was left to Woods to either win or lose. Frank Nobilo tied Woods briefly when he birdied the 14th and 15th holes, but that was short-lived. Woods went on to beat the New Zealander, who now works as a broadcaster with GOLF CHANNEL, by three strokes.
