SYNOPSIS
Tiger Woods came to Bay Hill having played in five tournaments without a win. The national media was publicly speculating about a slump -- despite the fact that Woods hadn't finished lower than 13th and he was a cumulative 75 under. He took a one-stroke advantage over Sergio Garcia into the final round but it was Phil Mickelson who turned out to give chase, taking the lead at the 11th hole when Woods made bogey. A two-putt birdie at the 16th hole -- where Woods' drive was 2 feet from the OB stake -- pulled the world No. 1 back into a tie with Mickelson. The 72nd hole decided the outcome as Woods hit a spectator with his drive, which turned out to be fortuitous because his ball was tracking toward OB again. He took a drop from the cart path and fired a 5-iron to 15 feet where he made the birdie putt. "I got an 'Arnold Palmer' break," Woods said. "I was able to get some wonderful breaks down the stretch. It was not a pretty round of golf but I got the ball in the hole. It's always nice to win."
