Woods back at the top of the money lists

Tiger Woods will be going for a third successive American Express World Championship title at Mount Juliet in Ireland next year after he made a successful defence of the event he won in thrilling fashion at the County Kilkenny course last September.

The world No1's latest victory - his fifth of the season and 52nd of his career - came by two shots over Vijay Singh, Stuart Appleby and Tim Herron at the Capital City Club.

With a first prize of £630,000, Woods moved up from third to first on the US Tour money list with almost £4million.

A month of the season remains, but if the 27-year-old can stay top he will become the first player to win the money list crown for five years in a row.

It was, almost unbelievably, his eighth World Golf Championship victory in 15 attempts. The victory was also the 100th for New Zealander caddie Steve Williams and Woods said: "People have no idea how big this win is. I've been trying all summer to get him to 100. He has meant a lot to the success I've had."

For the 34th time out of 38, Woods converted a 54-hole lead into success. There simply is no better front-runner in the whole of sport.
