Tiger Woods finished at 13-under-par 275 to win THE PLAYERS Championship for his 78th career victory and fourth win this season. Woods, who won the tournament in 2001, joins Fred Couples, Davis Love III and Steve Elkington as the only two-time winners at TPC Sawgrass.
Woods 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 and 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-12 conference champion and Pac-12 Player of the Year.
The AJGA will return to TPC Sawgrass this fall for the seventh annual The Junior PLAYERS Championship presented by TaylorMade-adidas Golf, Aug. 28 – Sep. 1.
