After his winning birdie putt on the 18th, Tiger Woods turns and slams his cap to the ground as he lets out a roar.

Not since 2001 at Bay Hill against Phil Mickelson has Tiger Woods won a PGA Tour event with birdie on the 72nd hole to win by a shot. Tied with Bart Bryant on Sunday at No. 18 of the same course, Woods nailed a 25-foot putt to take the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando. "I kept telling myself, 'I've done this before. I did it against Phil, and this time it's a little bit deeper into the green, and the putt has a little more break, and it has a little more grain. I've done it before, and I can do it again,' " Woods said. The world's No. 1 golfer won his fifth title in a row on the PGA Tour (sixth straight worldwide). It was his 64th victory, tying him with Ben Hogan at No. 3 on the tour's career list. More inside, 7C
