Tiger wins… again.
Marking his 82nd PGA win, Woods went wire to wire, leading the Zoza Championship for the entire tournament.
Following the victory, Woods will captain the American side at December’s Presidents Cup in Australia and might choose himself as one of his four captain’s picks to join the eight automatic qualifiers on the team.
After winning the Zoza, Woods jokingly said:
“I think certainly as a player I got the captain’s attention.”
While the Presidents Cup is just around the corner, next year’s Olympic golf in Tokyo also looms large.
Only the top four American players in the world rankings will qualify, so Woods’ place is far from assured, given the depth of talent in the American ranks.
He vaulted from 10th to sixth in the world with his win on Monday, but is still only the fourth-ranked American behind Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas.
