Tiger Woods Ties Sam Snead’s Record Of 82 PGA Tour Wins At Zozo Championship [VIDEO]

Tiger Woods dominated the Zozo Championship in Japan this weekend. He stood in first place throughout the event to notch his 82nd PGA Tour win. After being one shy of tying Sam Snead‘s record since the Masters in April, Tiger tied the record with his win in Japan. Woods (-19) tied the mark on Sunday with a 3-stroke victory over Hideki Matsuyama (-16) at the inaugural Zozo Championship at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club.

It was a win not many saw coming from Woods, who had been on quite the cold streak before the event.

After not shooting a single score lower than 67 since March 2019, Woods opened with three in a row in Japan as he started 64-64-66 to take a three-stroke lead into the final round. From there, it was over.

When Tiger enters with a three stroke lead going into the final round, it always is.

Due to bad weather on Friday, the tourney’s conclusion was moved to Monday morning. Woods completed 29 holes on Sunday local time (Saturday evening here in the United States) before closing out the last seven holes on Monday morning (Sunday evening here).

“Five days at the top of the board is a long time, man. It was definitely stressful,” said Woods, who is now ranked sixth in the Official World Golf Rankings.

He played the front nine of Round 4 in 2 under on Sunday, and after opening Monday with a bogey in his first hole on the fifth day of the tournament, Woods settled in and wound up 1 under on the back nine for a 67 that included a walk-off birdie putt at the last. His 27 birdies led the field on the week, and he finished in the top 10 in fairways and greens hit and putts made per green in regulation.

“This was big. Hideki made it tight. It was a lot closer than what people probably thought,” Woods said. “I had a chance to get myself a cushion at 13 and 15, missed those, made one at 14. Hideki did what he needed to do to put heat on me. It came down to the last hole.”

Woods looks poised to finally break a record that he was always destined to, as he looks ahead of the new PGA season healthy and ready for more action.
