SYNOPSIS
Tiger Woods' fifth victory in the World Golf Championships-American Express Championship came on a fifth different venue. Woods was undeterred by his new surroundings, too, leading wire-to-wire and finishing 23 under at The Grove. He ended up beating Ian Poulter and Adam Scott by eight strokes. This also happened to be the week that Byron Nelson passed away at the age of 94 and Woods' sixth straight win brought to mind the legends' 11 in a row. "I think if you look at it overall, I've had a pretty good year," Woods said. "¦So overall, the things that I've been working on the past couple of years are finally starting to come together. It's nice to see that the fruits of all the hard labor."
