(Newser) – Two days ago he was seven strokes behind the leader.  Today Tiger Woods was crowned champ of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.  Again. Woods defeated Bart Bryant on the 18th-hole sinking a 25-foot putt for birdie to seal the deal.  The win gives Woods 64 career PGA victories and ties him with the legendary Ben Hogan for third-place all-time.

It was his fifth win at Bay Hill, making it the fourth tournament he’s played and won at least five times – a first in PGA history. He’s won the CA Championship at Doral six times in his illustrious 12-year professional career. It just so happens that event is next weekend, and is Woods' last stop before the Masters begins April 7.
