Tiger wins THE PLAYERS
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL (TheSpread) – Tiger Woods didn’t dominate on Sunday, but he did enough to pick up a win in THE PLAYERS Championship.
Woods posted a 2-under 70 on Sunday to finish the tournament at -13 overall, two shots ahead of David Lingmerth, Kevin Streelman and Jeff Maggert, who were all -11 overall.
Woods looked to be running away with the tournament, but had a double bogey on the 14th hole after putting his tee shot in the water. Still, he rebounded and held off the rest of the contenders.
According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Woods had 7/1 odds to win this event, which means a wager of $100 on him to win will pay out an additional $700.
Sergio Garcia started the day tied for the lead with Woods and Lingmerth, and he was even tied with Woods for the lead entering the 17th hole. However, he put two balls into the water at the par-3 17th island green, taking himself out of contention. Garcia finished -7 overall, which put him in a tie for eighth.
