Woods rallies with 6-under 66 to beat Furyk by two strokes


Tiger Woods poses with the trophy and hula dancers after winning the Grand Slam of Golf for the seventh straight time Wednesday. The British Open and PGA champion finished the 36-hole tournament with an 8-under 136 total to earn $500,000, giving him more than $3 million in career Grand Slam winnings.


There are winning streaks in sports that may never be broken: the Boston Celtics’ 10 straight NBA titles, Lance Armstrong’s seven consecutive Tour De France wins and John Wooden’s UCLA winning seven straight national championships.

Add Tiger Woods’ dominant run at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf to that list.
Woods rallied to win the Grand Slam for a record seventh straight time, closing with a bogey-free 6-under 66 on Wednesday to beat Jim Furyk by two strokes.

The British Open and PGA champion, who started the day three shots behind Furyk, finished the 36-hole tournament with an 8-under 136 total to earn $500,000, giving him more than $3 million in career Grand Slam winnings.

Furyk, the world’s No. 2 golfer behind Woods, closed with a 71 to take home $300,000. U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy (74) was six strokes back and earned $250,000. Mike Weir (74) was last at 1 over and made $200,000.
Despite his poor finish, Ogilvy didn’t seem to mind. He had a front-row seat to history.
