Tiger Outstaged In Final Round At Thousand Oaks

THOUSAND OAKSĀ  (AP) — U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell capped off his greatest year by putting together the greatest comeback ever against Tiger Woods in the Chevron World Challenge.

Woods looked as though he would recover from losing a four-shot lead Sunday when he stuffed his approach to inside 3 feet on the 18th hole, but McDowell knocked in a 20-foot birdie putt that forced a playoff. On the first extra hole, McDowell again made a birdie putt from 20 feet.

This time, Woods couldn’t match him. His 15-foot birdie putt slid by on the right, and Woods ended a calendar year without winning.

Woods had never lost a tournament as a pro when leading by at least three shots going into the final round.
