Tiger crushes Cadillac Championship at Doral

Tiger Woods rolled back the years on Sunday, winning the WGC-Cadillac Championship in vintage fashion at the Blue Monster in Miami.

Finishing at 19-under for a two-stroke victory that was particularly punctuated by some perfect putting and deadly sand wedgery from the man who is still unquestionably golf's major icon, Tiger showed flashes of his pre-2009 meltdown brilliance.

On the eve of the tournament, Woods talked about the extra coaching on the greens he'd received from old pal Steve Stricker, one of the preeminent putters in the game.

And if anything 'Stricks' taught his protege too well. Woods was dominant with the putter for four straight rounds, taking the fewest number of putts he's ever taken and beating Stricker into second place, two shots back.

“It feels good,” Woods said, “especially to play that well this entire week, on a difficult setup. The greens got really quick out there today. If you left the ball in the correct spot, though, you could be pretty aggressive and shoot a good number.”

With all the talk of Rory McIlroy as the new heir apparent, and the World No1 did shoot his best round of 2013 with a 7-under 65 on Sunday, the day belonged to the man who still clings to his throne.

“That’s how I know I can play,” Woods said. “That’s the thing. To be able to bring it out a couple times this year, and then able to close and get the Ws on top of that, that’s nice. Any time I can win prior to Augusta, it always feels good.”
