Tiger Woods Wins 4th Event of 2013 at Players Championship

Tiger Woods' 2013 just got even better.

After posting a score of 13-under, Woods won the 2013 Players Championship by two strokes over Kevin Streelman, Jeff Maggert and David Lingmerth (via SportsCenter on Twitter): 

This was Woods' 300th career tournament as a pro on the Tour.  

He entered this tournament as the overwhelming favorite after a solid start to his 2013 season. Woods has won four tournaments in the calender year, and according to Justin Ray of ESPN Stats & Info, he likes playing in milestone starts:

It has been a long road back to the top for Woods, but now with four wins in 2013 and the No. 1 world ranking, he has nothing left to prove in his quest to regain his dominant form. 

Now, he can fully turn his attention back to the pursuit of history.  

The U.S. Open is almost exactly a month away, and he has more momentum now than at any point since late 2009. 

Jack Nicklaus won his last major title at Augusta at age 46. Woods is 37. Using that as a point of reference, it leaves Woods with nine more years to pass Jack. 

With improved equipment and training allowing golfers to stay competitive at a more advanced age, Tiger's odds of capturing four titles out of his next 35 majors is a strong possibility. 

While that much remains in question, there is no doubting that Woods is firmly back in his throne as the king of golf.
