Woods passes Nicklaus with AT&T Win

"I remember there was a time when people were saying I could never win again," Tiger Woods said. "Here we are."

The words of the former world number one as he passed Jack Nicklaus's total of 73 PGA Tour wins, winning the AT&T National by two shots.

In case, the golfing community didn't get which doubters he was referring to, Woods was only too happy to clarify what he meant.

"A lot of media people didn't think I could win again, and I had to deal with those questions for a quite a bit. It was just a matter of time."

Behind the overnight leader by one, Zimbabwean Brendon De Jonge, Woods caught him up on Sunday closing with a 2-under 69, good enough to take home the winners cheque of $1.17 million and which had included a run of 41 holes without a bogey.

"Give me a little bit of time, and I feel like this is what I can do," Tiger said after taking the title.

"When you're changing systems and have a totally different release pattern, it's going to take some time, and there are times when, yeah, I revert back, but that's happening less and less, and my ball striking is getting better and better."

The true test though, may well come in a fortnight at Royal Lytham & St Annes at the British Open.
