Tiger ties the Golder Bear with Memorial Win

It wasn't the Jack Nicklaus record Tiger Woods is dreaming about, but his win at Memorial to tie the Golden Bear's haul of PGA Tour titles will be nearly as sweet.

A protracted slump since his win at Bay Hill in March, that featured finishes no better than tied for 40th, was blown away by a vintage display by Woods in a two-shot victory at Dublin, Ohio on Sunday.

''That was some good stuff out there,'' Woods said. ''I never really missed a shot today.''

Not only did he hardly miss a shot, but Woods also pulled out the magic once more, this time from deep rough on the 16th.

50 feet out and a stroke behind leader Rory Sabbatini, Woods chipped in an extraordinary flop off the green that had Nicklaus gushing.

'The most unbelievable, gutsy shot I've ever seen,'' he said.

''Under the circumstances — the circumstances being Tiger has been struggling — it was either fish or cut bait,'' Nicklaus said later.

''He had one place to land the ball. He's playing a shot that if he leaves it short, he's going to leave himself again a very difficult shot. If he hits it long, he's going to probably lose the tournament. He lands the ball exactly where it has to land. Going in the hole was a bonus. But what a shot!

''I don't think under the circumstances I've ever seen a better shot.''

With the U.S. Open at Olympic Club under two weeks away, Woods' apparent return to form couldn't have come at a better time.
