Tiger Woods wins AT&T National, passes Nicklaus for 2nd in all-time wins


BETHESDA, Md. -- Tiger Woods now only looks up at one man standing between him and the all-time PGA Tour wins record.


Woods won for the 74th time in his PGA Tour career on Sunday, taking the AT&T National for a second time by two shots over Bo Van Pelt. Woods closed with 2-under 69 at Congressional CC to beat Bo Van Pelt at 8 under par.

Woods and Van Pelt were tied at 8 under after 11 holes, matching scores until Van Pelt made bogey at the par-4 17th to Woods' par.

A par at the last from Woods sealed the win. His 74th win has him eight wins from tying Sam Snead for the most wins all-time.

Adam Scott finished alone in third at 5 under par after shooting 67 on Sunday.

Robert Garrigus, Seung-yul Noh, Jhonattan Vegas and Billy Hurley III were tied for fourth at 4 under par.
