SYNOPSIS
Tiger Woods used another highlight-reel shot to turn back Padraig Harrington to win at Firestone ... again. The towering 8-iron to inches at the 16th hole on Sunday -- coupled with the Irishman's disasterous flop shot that bounced into the lake in front of the green -- enabled Woods to turn a one-stroke deficit into a three-shot lead. Woods ended up shooting 5-under 65 to win by four, coming from behind for the 20th time in his career to win on the PGA TOUR. The victory was Woods' second straight, too. Woods' win at Firestone wasn't exactly a surprise, though, since it was his seventh win at the Bridgestone Invitational. He's the only player on either the PGA TOUR or European Tour to win a stroke-play event on the same course seven times. Sam Snead holds the record with one more victory in the same event, but his eight wins in Greensboro came on two different courses. Woods now has won 16 World Golf Championships in 30 starts.
