Tiger Woods creates record lead as World No.1

The World Number One, Tiger Woods, was fantastic at Firestone Country Club as he successfully defended his World Golf Championships – Bridgestone Invitational title, beating US Ryder Cup team-mate Stewart Cink at the fourth extra hole of a sudden-death play-off to notch his 11th individual victory in a WGC event. His lead over World Number Two Phil Mickelson has reached an unprecedented 13.31 average points.

Will MacKenzie won his first PGA TOUR event Sunday when he birdied the final hole at the Reno-Tahoe Open to edge Bob Estes by a stroke. The win takes him to World Number 211, a jump of 271 places.

Taichi Teshima won the Under Armour KBC Augusta on the Japan Golf Tour and moves to World Number 149, and improvement of 44 places.

This week’s other winners were Jason Enloe at the National Mining Association Pete Dye Classic on the Nationwide Tour, Wang Ter-Chang at the Brunei Open on the Asian Tour, James Heath at the ECCO Tour Championship on the European Challenge Tour and Steve Gangluff at the Canadian Tour’s Fallsview Casino Resort Pro Am Classic.
