SYNOPSIS
It was the end of a three-year victory drought dating back to 2009 -- and it ended at a course where Tiger Woods has dominated during his career. Graeme McDowell seemed poised to give Woods a battle on a windy Sunday at Bay Hill, but Woods wore him down on the back nine with a string of pars as Bay Hill grew tougher by the minute. The weekend belonged to Woods -- he shared the 36-hole lead with Charlie Wi, then shot a 71 on Saturday to take a one-shot lead over McDowell. Woods put the tournament out of reach with a blistering front-nine 33 on Sunday. Woods' 70 from the final group was remarkable in that only two players broke 70 on the final day at Bay Hill. The victory drought officially ended at 923 days -- and 27 tournaments.
