Tiger Woods wins Masters by two shots

Tiger Woods made history again on Sunday, posting a two-shot victory at the Masters to become the first player to win all four professional majors in succession.

Woods, who won the 1997 Masters for the first of his now six major titles, began his amazing run with a 15-shot victory at the U.S. Open last June at Pebble Beach and continued it with a British Open triumph at the Old Course at St. Andrews in July. He then survived a playoff to capture the PGA Championship at Valhalla in August and completed what some will consider the Grand Slam with his victory Sunday at Augusta.

Woods fired a final-round, four-under 68 to finish with a four- day total of 16-under 272, two shots shy his record-setting performance of 1997. However, unlike '97 when he cruised to a 12-shot victory, this year he needed to fend off two major threats.

David Duval was neck-and-neck with Woods for most of Sunday and carded a five-under 67 to finish alone in second place at 14-under, while Phil Mickelson, playing in the final group with Woods, managed only a two-under 70 and finished third at minus-13.

Duval, playing in the group ahead of Woods, bogeyed the 16th hole to fall out of a tie with Woods, then missed a four-foot birdie putt at the 18th hole that would have tied him for the lead at 15-under. However, Woods drained a 15-foot birdie putt at the final hole to seal his place in golf history.

Mickelson, who started the day one shot behind Woods, fell two shots off the pace with a bogey at 16. He also missed a 20-foot birdie putt at 17 that could have put some pressure on Woods heading to the last hole.

Woods, who also won the 1999 PGA Championship, is now 6-for-6 when taking a lead into the final round of a major.
