TIGER WOODS WINS BUICK, TIES ARNOLD PALMER


Tiger Woods took control early in the week and held on as the weather changed to win by 8 strokes at the Buick Invitational. With this win, Tiger ties Arnold Palmer with 62 wins on the PGA Tour and moves him into 4th all time on the winners list. Rory Sabbatini had a great Sunday as he went from a tie for 21st to a tie for 3rd. Sabbatini wound up with an extra $260,000 for his -5 final round. Woods will be the early favorite for the US Open as the PGA returns to the Torrey Pines course in June.


"What he's going to do is screw the U.S. Open up for everyone else," Fred Couples said. "If he had shot 10 or 11 under, the USGA would have said, 'Well, maybe we have it in the right spot.' Now, they may have to regroup a little."

Woods still wasn't completely happy with his performance and will look to turn it up a notch when he returns. "I wanted to go out there and make no bogeys and shoot something under par," Woods said. "I got half of it right."
