Tiger's perfect season continues

Tiger Woods extended his remarkable run of victories in world ranking tournaments to six with a superb birdie on the 72nd hole to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard at Bay Hill Club & Lodge, Orlando, Florida.

The 24 foot downhill left-to-right putt was the longest the world number one had holed all week and it denied Bart Bryant the chance of a play-off after Bryant had closed with a 67 to become only the fifth player to record all four rounds in the sixties in the history of the tournament. Woods stretches his gap at the top of the Official World Golf Ranking to 12.05 average points.

Graeme McDowell capped an extraordinary final round at the inaugural Ballantine’s Championship with a thrilling sudden-death play-off victory on the third extra hole over Jeev Milkha Singh at the Pinx Golf Club.

After both players had posted 24-under-par 264 totals they returned to the 18th tee three times before McDowell produced a sublime seven iron from 179 yards to within a foot of the hole to set up a title clinching birdie. McDowell climbs to world number 59, an improvement of 35 places while Singh jumps 11 spots to world number 79.
