Woods ends two-year drought with World Challenge win


Tiger Woods birdied the last two holes to win the Chevron World Challenge on Sunday, the one-shot triumph his first victory since a 2009 sex scandal shattered his iconic image. Woods had gone 26 starts worldwide in more than two years without a victory as personal turmoil was followed by struggles on the course with swing changes and, this year, injuries that curtailed his playing time and stalled his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major titles at 14. On Sunday, the former world number one delivered under pressure, making birdies at 17 and 18 to erase a one-shot deficit and beat former Masters champion Zach Johnson by one stroke in the unofficial 18-man event.
