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.

All of this because he topped off a fantastic weekend by winning the AT&T National at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.

Watney shot a 66, making three big par saves and three birdies on the front nine to take control and then held off K.J. Choi’s (67) for a two-shot win.

Watney finished at 13-under 267, tying the tournament record set by Tiger Woods in 2009 when it was played at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland.

Northern Ireland native Rory McIlroy ended a memorable and record-setting week at the U.S. Open at Congressional in Bethesda, Maryland with his first major victory.

The 22-year-old played four days of mistake-free golf at Congressional Country Club ended on Sunday when he finished off a 2-under-par 69 to break U.S. Open records which is suppose to have the toughest test for all golfers.

He ended the tournament at 16-under-par.

The last 10 U.S. Open champions combined were 14 under-par.

After the tournament, Rory walked off the 18th green on Father’s Day with his dad, Gerry, who worked three jobs so that his only son could pursue his dream of being a pro golfer.

McIlroy finished at 268 to break the U.S. Open record by four shots.

This is the second straight U.S. Open title for a Northern Ireland native. Graeme McDowell won it in 2010.

Rory McIlroy is looking unbeatable at the U.S. Open in Bethesda, Maryland.

The 22-year-old is going after the record books and doesn’t realize it ; he’s just playing golf.

The native of Northern Ireland became the first player in the 111-year history of the U.S. Open to reach 13 under par. Despite a double bogey into the water on the 18th hole, his 5-under-66 was good enough to set the 36-hole scoring record at 131.

At 11 under par, he has a six-shot lead over former PGA championship winner Y.E. Yang (69), matching the U.S. Open record set by Tiger Woods in 2000 at Pebble Beach for the largest margin after two rounds of play.

Rory McIlroy has his name at the top of the leaderboard at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland.

McIlroy got past the first of four rounds of tough tests in the U.S. Open with a 6-under-par 65 to build the biggest 18-hole lead in 35 years.

The 22-year-old from Northern Ireland missed only one green. Of the 156-man field, McIlroy was the only golfer without a bogey.
