Tiger Woods tied Jack Nicklaus for all-time PGA Tour wins with 73 at the Memorial Tournament back in June.

With his latest win on Sunday, he now has 74 wins and has passed his golfing idol. He is now 8 wins behind Sam Snead who has 82.

Woods held off  Bo Van Pelt on the back nine of the Blue Course at Congressional Country Club on Sunday to win the AT&T National in Bethesda, Maryland.

In this comeback season for Woods, she has risen to number-4 in the world golf rankings behind Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood.

With his final-round of 2-under par 69, Woods beat the scrappy Van Pelt by two shots and became the first golfer to earn three wins on Tour this season. Adam Scott finished third at 5-under-par 67 on Sunday.

In his career, this is the 12th time that Woods has won at least three times. He has three wins in his last seven starts.

Woods went 41 holes without a bogey until needing six strokes to get off the par-5 16th. He took the outright lead by making a 6-foot putt for par on the 17th as Van Pelt made bogey. Bogeys on the last three holes hurt Van Pelt’s chances.

PGA Tour golfer Tiger Woods has seen several changes in his career in the past two years, a sex scandal, a well-publicized divorce, losing corporate sponsors, no wins, his ranking drop from #1 to 20th in the world and now a new caddie.

It was announced on Wednesday that Woods had let his long-time friend and caddy Steve Williams go. Woods made the surprising news on his website .

According to published reports around the golf world, the successful partnership ended in a room at the Aronomink Golf Club near Philadelphia two weeks ago, but both kept the news quiet until Wednesday. Williams says he “shocked” by the decision.

Everybody wonders how this partnership dissolved after 12 years of success.

It has been reported that Woods was upset when Williams worked for Adam Scott at the U.S. Open, then worked for him at the AT&T National and the British Open.

Woods, unlike other golfers, has only had three caddies during his career. Williams, Mike “Fluff” Cowan and childhood friend, Bryon Bell.
