    tiger woods bmw championship tour championship pga1

    Tiger Woods shot a 3-under par 68 in Sunday’s final round of the BMW Championship to win by 8 strokes over Jim Furyk and Marc Leishman.  It was Woods’ 6th win of the 2009 PGA tour.  With the win, Woods also assured himself of the #1 seed heading into the Tour Championship in Atlanta in 2 weeks, the final piece of the FEDEX Cup playoff.  The winner of the FEDEX Cup picks up a hefty $10 million payout.

    After blowing a 2-shot lead in the final round at the PGA Championship to Y.E. Yang back in August, Woods was confident that he wouldn’t let the same thing happen at the BMW Championship.  Woods won for the 71st time in his career (now just 2 career victories behind Jack Nicklaus who is 2nd on the all-time win list), and he also tied Sam Snead’s record of winning at least 6 PGA tour events in 6 seasons.  Not bad at all.

    The points are re-set for the FEDEX Cup finale at the Tour Championship, so anyone in the Top 5 of the current points standings can win the FEDEX Cup if they win the Tour Championship.  That means Woods, Furyk, Steve Stricker, Zach Johnson and Heath Slocum all have their sights set on one thing – that Tour Championship trophy…  Stay tuned  – – it should be a fun tourney to watch in HOTlanta in 2 weeks…

    Any reason for us to share some great photos of Elin Nordegren Woods – the wife of Tiger Woods.  Tiger Woods won his record 4th Memorial Tournament Championship in dramatic fashion on Sunday afternoon.  Woods birdied 3 of the final 4 holes to shoot a 7-under 65 in his final round.  He finished at 11-under, 1 shot ahead of Jim Furyk who shot a 3-under 69.  Co-leaders Matt Bettencourt and Mark Wilson led Woods by 4 strokes at the start of the day.  Woods was tied for 7th also trailing Jim Furyk, Jonathan Byrd, Geoff Ogilvy and Davis Love III.  Woods had 4 birdies on the front 9 to move into position and then he outplayed the rest of the leaderboard down the stretch with his birdies on 15, 17 and 18 to bring home his 67th career win.

    Talking about Woods wouldn’t be complete without mentioning his beautiful wife Elin.  Enjoy…

    In the 1st round of the Quail Hollow Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina, Tiger Woods shot a 30 on his back nine en route to a bogey-free 7-under 65 on the day.  The rest of the field should start to take notice soon, as Woods has already built a 3-shot lead over 4 players stuck at 68 – Retief Goosen, Jeff Maggert, Hunter Mahan and Lucas Glover.  Woods finished the round with 3 straight birdies, and after having a few tournaments under his belt in 2009 (with 1 victory), he’s looking poised to get into the double-digit victories very early in the season.

    Woods is one lucky man.  Not to mention all of the tournaments he has won over the years (90 total career wins, including 14 Major Championships) or the $90 in tournament winnings he has earned, Woods has one of the hottest wives around.  Check out Elin Nordegren photos below!  Wonder if Jim Furyk was reacting to Tiger’s unbelievable 50-foot eagle putt or the full-size billboard photo of Woods’ wife behind the green on 10?!  It’s just not fair…
