Tiger Woods ends 26-tournatment winless streak

THOUSAND OAKS, CALIFORNIA

Its been over 2 years and 26 tourneys for Tiger without a single win, and after so much trouble in his personal and professional life,  Tiger Woods hit a 6-foot birdie this sunday and took the Chevron World Challenge. Woods won with a 3-under 69 and beat masters champion Zach Johson by a single shot.  Woods ends his 749 day winless streak, woods is Back!  This win moved his rank from #52 to #21 in the world rankings, and will set expectations high for the 2012 season. Tigers next tournament will begin at the end of january in Abu Dhabi.

If this win felt differently than the last one, Woods wasn’t saying.

”They all feel good,” he said. ”They’re not easy. People don’t realize how hard it is to win golf tournaments. I’ve gone on streaks where I’ve won golf tournaments in a row, but still … I don’t think I’ve taken it for granted. And I know because of how hard it is.”

”I don’t think we’re going to see another 2011, if that makes sense,” Furyk said, alluding to Woods failing to reach the FedEx Cup playoffs this year. ”If he steadily progresses, keeps getting confidence and moving forward, he’s going to return and be one of the best players in the game again.”
