Tiger Woods roared back from four shots back with 18 holes to play to win the Memorial.
The former No.1, whose struggles have been well documented, birdied three of his final four holes for 5-under-par 67 and a two-shot victory over Andres Romero and Rory Sabbatini. Romero matched Woods’ 65 while Sabatini carded a 72 after starting the day one stroke behind Spencer Levin. The third-round leader ballooned to a 75 and finished four shots back in a tie for fourth place with Daniel Summerhays, who signed for a 69.
Woods matches tournament host Jack Nicklaus with his 73rd title on the PGA Tour. It’s his fifth at the Memorial.
Woods and Nicklaus are tied for second place in career wins on tour, trailing Sam Snead’s 82.
