PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Tiger Woods had the last word against Sergio Garcia by winning The Players Championship on Sunday.
Woods ended a weekend of words with Garcia by finding land on the final two holes for par to close with a 2-under 70. Garcia was tied for the lead as he stood on the 17th tee and stared at the island green. He hit into the water twice to make a quadruple-bogey 7, and then hit his tee shot into the water on the 18th in a stunning collapse.
Woods joined Fred Couples, Davis Love III and Steve Elkington as multiple winners on the TPC Sawgrass. It was his 78th career win on the PGA Tour. Woods was in the scoring trailer when David Lingmerth missed a long birdie putt for a playoff.
