Tiger Woods back at No. 1 after Bay Hill win

By EURweb

     Tiger Woods holds the trophy after winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge on March 24, 2013 in Orlando, Fla.

    Tiger Woods regained his No. 1 world ranking in golf on Monday with his eighth career victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. It’s his first time on top since the final week of October 2010, marking the longest dry spell of his career.

    His 77th PGA Tour win also moves him closer to breaking Sam Snead’s all-time tour record of 82 within the year.

    Woods never let anyone closer than two shots in the final round at Bay Hill that was delayed one day by storms. With a conservative bogey he could afford on the last hole, he closed with a 2-under 70 for a 2-shot win over Justin Rose.

Next up is the Masters, where Woods will try to end his five-year drought in the majors.

    Woods fell as low as No. 58 in the world as he coped with his cheating crisis and injuries to his left leg. One week after he announced he was dating Olympic ski champion Lindsey Vonn, Woods celebrated his third win of the season and his sixth going back to Bay Hill a year ago.

    “It’s a byproduct of hard work, patience and getting back to winning golf tournaments,” Woods said.
