Tiger Woods Wins 2012 Memorial Tournament as Levin and Sabbatini Collapse

Today’s final round of the Memorial Tournament by Nationwide had all the excitement and drama of an old Tiger Woods winning charge — except that it was the new Tiger Woods.

Precision Short Game – Satisfaction Guaranteed!

Tiger vaulted to the lead by holing a lob pitch shot from off the 15th green for a birdie that Tournament host Jack Nicklaus said was the best shot he’d ever seen at Muirfield. Then Tiger birdied the 17th and 18th holes to claim a two-shot win with his final round of 67.

At the beginning of the final round Tiger was four strokes off of then-leader Spencer Levin. Whether it was the pressure-packed tension of trying to hold the lead in the final round, or perhaps final-round-exhaustion, Levin lost his touch. In his final nine holes he had three bogies and a double-bogie, ending with a 75.

Tiger Woods’ fitness and determination

What made Tiger’s performance all the more remarkable was that yesterday he played with a 103 degree fever. and came back to win the Tournament. Even more poetic was that this was his 73rd win on the PGA Tour — tying Jack Nicklaus for the second-most wins ever.

Tiger’s ball-striking was superb. Overall he was tied for first in greens in regulation (73.6%), and really improved his putting in today’s final round (with a strokes-gained-putting for the day of 1.861).

But it was Tiger’s fitness and determination that impressed me most in this win. He never gave up. His energy and performance in the final round as he charged into the lead reminded me of the “Tiger of Old.” I think his golf fitness prepared him well for the endurance he showed today. Congratulations, Tiger!

Tiger amazing lob wedge shot into the hole on the 15h hole reminded me how important the short game is to winning golf tournaments.
