After winning at AT&T National this weekend, AJGA alum
Tiger Woods earned his third PGA
TOUR victory of the season and the 74th of his PGA TOUR career. His
win at Congressional Country Club moves Woods to the top of the FedEx Cup
rankings and moves him to second on the all-time PGA TOUR win list, behind only
Woods opened with rounds of 72-68 and started Saturday
five shots off the lead, only to come back with a 4-under-par 67. After
battling with fellow AJGA alum Bo Van
Pelt for the lead Sunday, Woods prevailed with an 8-under-par 276.
The 14-time Major winner played in 13 and won eight AJGA
tournaments from 1991-1993, which ties him for second most AJGA career wins and
earned him the title of Rolex Junior Player of the Year in 1991-1992. Woods appeared
in the Wyndham Cup from 1990-1993 as a member of the West Team and posted a
record of 11-3-2, the best of any boy in the tournament’s history.
Before beginning his professional career, Woods spent two
years at Stanford, where he was a two-time first team All-American. In 1996 he
was the NCAA individual champion, the Jack Nicklaus Player of the Year, the
Pac-10 conference champion, and Pac-10 Player of the Year.
