Woods credits Begay for putting tip to continue winning ways

BETHESDA, Md. -- Tiger Woods consulted with an old friend to rediscover the putting stroke that made the world believe he could make anything when it mattered most.

Woods credited friend and Stanford roommate Notah Begay III with a putting tip that helped him find the touch to win for the third time this season at the AT&T National.

"I've got to put a plug into Notah," Woods said after the win. "He gave me a little tip when we talked about putting and philosophies early this week, and he got me putting like I used to."

Of his three wins, Woods said he putted best at Congressional - a venue set up more like the U.S. Open than when the national championship was there a year ago. Woods missed that U.S. Open because of injury.

Woods admitted he hit the ball better from tee to green at the Memorial Tournament, where caddie Joe LaCava told GNN his man missed just two iron shots all week.
