Tiger Woods For those speculating if Tiger Woods can still be called golf’s most successful player, he returned with a final hole birdie putt to win at Bay Hill, establishing that he still has the magic after his knee surgery. He won a tournament for the first time since his re-constructive surgery in June last year.

Tiger Woods makes golf seem easier than the other 900 million players can ever dream of. He confirmed this as he stoof over a 16 foot putt on the 72nd hole of a golf tournament of 72 holes named after Arnold Palmer on Sunday. Earlier he has won the Bay Hill Tournament in Orlando, Fla, five times. He holed a 15-foot birdie on the 18th hole at the Arnold Palmer Invitational to win his sixth time at the event.

In three of his now-six Bay Hill wins, Woods won by rolling in a birdie putt on the last hole. The ball rolled right into the hole and Tiger gave the fist pump that is celebration as well as a sign of his confidence.

Woods had rallied fro five shots at dusk and got to pole position only as O’Hair wavered and the icon closed 3-under 67 and a a four round total 5-under 275. O’Hair has a 73 and was a shot behind Woods as runner up. Zack Johnson finished third with a 69 and two shots behind O’Hair.

Last year Tiger Woods had drilled in a title-clinching birdie on the 18th hole to beat Bart Bryant at Bay Hill.
