(Newser) – Tiger Woods collected his 13th career major by winning the PGA Championship on the steamy Southern Hills course in Tulsa today, scoring a 1-under 69 for a two-shot victory over Woody Austin. Woods was the first major champion in seven tries, Newsday reports,  to make a par on the 72nd hole at Southern Hills.

it was also Tiger's first win as a dad, with wife Elin holding their 2-month-old daughter, Sam Alexis, in the scoring room. Woods, at 31, now has more majors than the rest of the top 10 in the world combined, and is ahead of where Nicklaus was at this age on his way to his record 18 professional majors.
