VIDEO: That time Tiger Woods awarded the AT&T National trophy to himself

Back in 2009 P.H. (pre-hydrant), everything was coming up Tiger Woods. He had won twice leading into that year's AT&T National, the last at Congressional C.C. for two years as the club was preparing to host the 2011 U.S. Open.

With a closing 3-under 67, Woods won his own tournament in his second start (he missed the '08 edition due to injury) by a shot over the hard-charging Hunter Mahan, whose final-round 62 set the early watermark.

The winner of his own tournament, Woods was in the awkward position of awarding the AT&T National trophy to...himself. He handled it about as well as a guy could.

Woods would go on to win the National again in 2012 after a derecho ripped through the Washington, D.C., area on the Friday evening of tournament week, forcing the third round to be played with only tournament volunteers, Congressional staff and media on the grounds to watch.
