TIGER WOODS scored a 69 in the final round to win the AT&T National at Congressional in Maryland by two strokes.
It was the third victory for Woods this year and 74th in his career, getting him to second place past Jack Nicklaus on the tour's career list and moving to within eight wins of Sam Snead’s record.
Tiger also moved to the top of the PGA Tour money list and the FedEx Cup standings for the first time since September 2009.
Woods birdied No. 9 to move to eight under and was tied with Bo Van Pelt until the 16th. Both briefly got to nine-under with birdies on the par-four No. 15 but quickly moved back to eight under with both dropping shots the next.
Tiger made pars and finished at eight-under 276, while Van Pelt proceeded to drop two more shots on the last two holes for a closing 71 on Monday, Manila time.
Adam Scott fired a final-round 67 and wound up at five-under 279 for third place.
