SYNOPSIS
For all of Tiger Woods' victories, this one ranks high. It was his 73rd win -- matching Jack Nicklaus for No. 2 on the all-time PGA TOUR wins list -- and he did in right in Jack's backyard. But that wasn't the whole story: He pulled off what many called the greatest shot of his career. He birdied three of the last four holes to win by two shots -- but the key blow was a chip-in on the par-3 16th. Buried in the rough 50 feet from the pin, Woods delivered a full flop shot that came out perfectly and rolled into the cup for an impossible birdie. Woods also birdied the 72nd hole to beat Andres Romero and Rory Sabbatini by two.
