Tiger Woods Dominates AT&T National for Huge Tournament Win
Tiger Woods is really good at getting ready for majors.
Back in March, Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational in preparation for the Masters. He followed that up with a win at the Memorial Tournament, which came just two weeks before the U.S. Open.
Now, a mere 18 days before the start of the Open Championship—or British Open, if you will—Woods has put together another masterful performance with his win at the AT&T National (via the PGA Tour's Twitter account).

Woods is going to continue to draw criticism no matter what he does, but his third PGA Tour win in just over three months shouldn't be overlooked.
That's more than Rory McIlroy has won all year. It's more than Lee Westwood. It's more than Luke Donald. And those are the only three golfers ranked ahead of Tiger Woods.
Watch out, world.
It wasn't necessarily a vintage performance by Tiger, but it was an impressive win nonetheless.
Eldrick came into Sunday trailing by just one stroke. The vintage Tiger would have put the red shirt on and gone to business, blowing everyone out of the water.
But this weekend, he found himself in a battle with tour veteran Bo Van Pelt.
They went back and forth at each other, with the turning point coming at hole No. 12.
A poor tee shot put Woods near a tree, but the 36-year-old proved he can still provide some Sunday magic as he pulled off this ridiculous shot:
Woods went on the save par and the battle continued.
Most impressive victory this year?
The two leaders remained tied—with everyone else at least three or four shots back—before a bogey by Van Pelt on No. 17 opened things up.
At No. 18, Woods took care of business, grabbing the par for the two-stroke victory (Van Pelt bogeyed 18) at eight-under.
With the win, Woods passed Jack Nicklaus on the all-time career PGA wins list with 74. He now only trails Sam Snead, who has 82.
The inevitable "Is Tiger Back?" debates will once again ensue, but one thing is sure. With the exception of his last two rounds at the U.S. Open, Woods has quietly played some scary good golf for the last month.
Well, as quietly as someone of his stature can dominate two-and-a-half tournaments.
