Landmark PGA win for Woods

Florida:

Tiger Woods overcame food poisoning to turn a five-shot lead into an 11-stroke victory, making PGA history by winning his fourth Bay Hill Invitational in a row. Woods fired a bogey-free four-under par 68 final round in rainy weather to finish at 19-under par 269, leaving runner-ups Kirk Triplett, Stewart Cink, Kenny Perry and Brad Faxon adrift. Australia's Aaron Baddeley was sixth at 281. "I'm very proud of this round," Woods said. "I didn't feel my best and was still able to go out there and make no bogeys". The rout matched the third-largest victory margin of Woods' career, following his 15-stroke romp at the 2000 US Open and the 12-stroke triumph at the 1997 Masters for his first major title. Woods also became only the third player to win the same tournament four years in a row, the first since Gene Sarazen at the Miami Open in 1930. Walter Hagan also shares the mark after winning the PGA Championship from 1924-1927. (PTI)
