SYNOPSIS
Tiger Woods, who has been so dominant in the World Golf Championships, had to come from behind to win this one at Harding Park. Colin Montgomerie, seeking that elusive first win on the PGA TOUR, set the pace in the first two rounds before John Daly grabbed the 54-hole lead. The final round was an exciting four-way race that also included Sergio Garcia and Woods, who tied Daly for the lead when he made three straight birdies beginning at No. 10. Daly regained the lead when he chipped in for birdie at the 13th and Woods bogeyed No. 14. A 4-foot Woods birdie at the 16th hole, coupled with Daly's miss from 5 feet at the 17th, put them back into a tie. Woods won on the first playoff hole when Daly missed a 3-footer that would have sent the two to another extra hole. "I feel so bad for J.D.," Woods said. "You never, ever want to win a golf tournament like that." Added the big-hitting Daly: "I'm longer, but he's better. I'd rather be better."
