SYNOPSIS
Tiger Woods became the first player to win the PGA Championship twice at the same venue when he beat Shaun Micheel by five strokes at Medinah some seven years after edging Sergio Garcia there by one. Woods' driver was a tad erratic but his putter never failed him -- and no where was that as evident than in the third round where he rolled in a 35-footer for par on the first hole and went on to tie Like Donald for the lead with a course-record 65. Woods distanced himself from the competition with a closing 68 that made him the only player in the field to break 70 in all four rounds. "It was a special day out there," Woods said. "I just had one of those magical days on the greens. I felt like it I could get the ball on the green, I could make it from anywhere. ¦ I just knew if I could keep doing what I was doing, the other guys were running out of holes."
