Tiger tames Congressional for third W in '12
Tiger Woods became the PGA Tour's first three-time winner of the 2012 season by winning the AT&T National at Congressional on Sunday.

Woods's final round 69 put him eight under, good for  a victory margin of two strokes ahead of close friend Bo Van Pelt.

In doing so, the former world number one claimed his 74th Tour win, taking him clear of Jack Nicklaus to become second outright on the all-time list, within sight of Sam Snead's 82 PGA tour victories..

"To do it at 36, I feel like I have a lot of years ahead of me," Woods said. ''I remember there was a time when people were saying I could never win again.

"That was, I think, what, six months ago?  Here we are.”

Woods was made to work for the US$1.17 million cheque all the way by Van Pelt, a man with whom he goes way back.

“We've gone at it since junior golf and college golf,” Woods added. “I've known him for a very long time -- one of the greatest guys out here. It was a pleasure to play with him the last two days."

The good feeling between the two is mutual, despite the gulf in class Woods has 74 wins, Van Pelt  has just the one.

“He's an amazing player,” Van Pelt said of Woods. “We've known each other a long time, probably 20 years. He's fun to play with."
