SYNOPSIS
The excitement over Tiger Woods' win streak built when he captured his seventh consecutive stroke-play event dating back to the previous year's British Open. He successfully defended his Buick Invitational title for the second straight year, as well, and brought his victory total at Torrey Pines to five. Woods had to share the spotlight early with Brandt Snedeker's sizzling 61 that included a 27 on the back nine of the North Course. But Woods doggedly pursued the leaders, tying Andrew Buckle with an eagle at the ninth hole on Sunday. He gave himself some breathing room with birdies at Nos. 13 and 17, the latter from 30 inches, to cap a final-round 66 and two-stroke win over Charles Howell III. "It's like what Jack had always said: winning breeds winning and the more you win, the more you understand how to do it, and you do it different ways," Woods said. "I've done it with great ball-striking, I've done it with lousy ball-striking, I've done it with great putting and so-so putting and sometimes I've done it with my short game. If you're able to do it different ways, it just breeds more and more confidence when you're put in that situation again."
