In a tournament that Jack Nicklaus hosts and on a course that he designed, Tiger Woods won his 73rd PGA tournament yesterday at the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, tying him with Nicklaus for second on the all-time wins list. (They trail Sam Snead who had 82 victories).

Woods shot a five-under-par 67 to win by two shots over Rory Sabbatini and Andres Romero. For Sabbatini, it was the second time in his career that he finished second to Tiger in a tournament. For Romero, he becomes the 70th golfer to finish second (or tied for second) to Tiger in a PGA event.

Ernie Els has finished in second place to Tiger in five tournaments, most of any competitor.

Here’s a look at a few of the players who have finished second or tied for second to Tiger in his 73 wins on the tour.

4: Davis Love, Vijay Singh, Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk

3: Chris DiMarco, Stewart Cink

2. Tom Lehman, Sergio Garcia, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Retief Goosen, David Toms, Charles Howell III, Rory Sabbatini
