SYNOPSIS
A weekend filled with sharp words between Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia came down to one last showdown Sunday in THE PLAYERS Championship, this one staged across the water in a tiny, terrifying section of TPC Sawgrass. Tied for the lead with two holes to play, Woods kept his shots on land and made two pars. Garcia hit three balls into the water for a quadruple bogey-double bogey finish.If there was special satisfaction in beating Garcia again, Woods kept that to himself. What mattered was having a chance to win, closing it out like he does so often, and capturing the richest prize on the PGA TOUR for the first time in a dozen years. Woods picked up 600 FedExCup points with his victory to increase his lead in the season-long standings. He allowed the final hour to turn into a tense duel by hooking his tee shot into the water on the 14th hole for double bogey. But his short game bailed him out to save par on the 15th and he made a critical birdie on the 16th, and he was solid on the final two holes for a 2-under 70. He won THE PLAYERS for the first time since 2001 and became the fifth multiple winner at TPC Sawgrass since THE PLAYERS moved to this former swamp in 1982. It was his 78th career win on the PGA TOUR, four short of the record held by Sam Snead.
