Tiger Woods completed the comeback, making birdie on 18 to surpass Zach Johnson at the 2011 Chevron World Challenge on Sunday by one shot. Woods posted back-to-back birdies on the 10th and 11th holes on his way to shooting 3-under on the day, and 10-under for the tournament. Johnson seemed to play relatively safe after posting two eagles in the third round. He shot even through 15 holes, leaving him tied with Woods. Johnson birdied on 16 to seemingly give himself the lead for good. Woods responded with a birdie of his own on 17 to pull back even heading into the final hole.
Woods earned his first PGA tournament win since 2009, perhaps conquering whatever demons have been hampering for the past two years. Paul Casey, Hunter Mahan and Matt Kuchar rounded out the final top five, shooting 5-under, 4-under and 4-under for the tournament, respectively.
