Tiger Woods shot a final-round 5-under 67, but it was PGA TOUR veteran Greg Chalmers who won his country’s national championship for the second title, claiming the Emirates Australian Open on Sunday.
Chalmers shot a final-round 69 to beat fellow Australian John Senden by one stroke and Woods by two.
Woods said two bad tee shots on his back nine cost him a shot at forcing a playoff with Chalmers. But the fact that he was in contention bodes well for Woods, who will compete with his fellow United States teammates against the International team in The Presidents Cup this week in Melbourne.
