SYNOPSIS
Woods paved the way for this victory at Warwick Hills when he opened with rounds of 67 and 63. But the weekend was another story -- not unlike that opening shot on Saturday that sailed out-of-bounds. Woods' putter kept him in the game, though, and he started the final round with a one-stroke lead over Esteban Toledo. The former professional boxer proved a game opponent but Woods came up with the clutch shot he needed at the par-3 11th when his ball landed 12 inches from the hole. Toledo missed his 20-footer for birdie and Woods suddenly had a two-stroke cushion. Toledo started firing at pins, and Woods hung tough, winning by four strokes. "I won this tournament two ways," Woods said. "The first two days I hit the ball great, and in the last two rounds I made every putt I looked at."
