Tiger Woods wins Florida golf

DORAL, Florida - Tiger Woods claimed an incredible 17th World Golf Championships (WGC) event, taking out the Cadillac Championship on Sunday by two shots, with Australian Adam Scott shooting the best round of the tournament to end in a tie for third.

The 14-time major winner notched up a seventh Cadillac Championship trophy and US PGA tour win No.76, leaving him just six wins adrift of Sam Snead's all-time record of 82.

Woods fired a controlled one-under-par final-round 71 to finish at 19-under-par, two shots ahead of fellow American Steve Stricker (68).

Two bogeys in the final three holes took a little gloss off the win but Woods had given himself a healthy buffer.

It is his first WGC win since 2009 and leaves him in good stead heading to Bay Hill in two weeks where he has also won seven times, before the Masters in early April as a four-time winner.

"I played well this week," Woods said.

"It was a week where I felt pretty good about everything I was doing and the way I was playing."

Adam Scott was the best of the Australians after a blistering bogey-free 64 in the final round, the best score of the week, rocketed him into a tie for third, but still five shots behind Woods.
