Woods finishes in fine style

Dublin - Tiger Woods spectacularly overhauled a fading Spencer Levin and a charging Rory Sabbatini with a few moments of magic to win his 73rd PGA Tour title by two shots at the Memorial tournament on Sunday.

He began the final day four strokes behind the pace-setting Levin and made a fast start before taking control with a scintillating finish that included a chip-in for birdie at the 16th that was lavishly praised by tournament host Jack Nicklaus

Woods birdied three of the last four holes for a five-under-par 67 and a nine-under total of 279, moving past Nicklaus into outright second place in the all-time standings for career victories on the US circuit.
