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.

Rocco Mediate (PGA Tour)

47-year-old Rocco Mediate holed out for an eagle for the fourth straight day over the weekend, hitting a wedge approach shot from 116 yards that spun back into the cup on the par-4 17th hole, propelling him to a one-shot win over Bo Van Pelt and Alex Prugh in the Open in San Martin, California.

Prugh shot a 69, while Van Pelt closed the final round with a 71.

Mediate now has won six times on the Tour.

Mediate, won for the first time on the PGA Tour since 2002, finishing with a 2-over-par 73 for a 15-under 269 total. He had a hole-in-one on the par-3 third hole Thursday, holed out from 160 yards during Friday’s second round on the par-4 fourth and on Saturday during the third round, he holed out from 111 yards on the par-5 15th. You rarely see one eagle in a tournament; but four is unprobable.

Also contributing to this story was Staff writer StephanieLee

AKRON, OHIO — Bubba Watson, playing his first tournament round of golf at Firestone Country Club, shot a 6-under 64 for a two-stroke lead after Thursday’s opening round of the Bridgestone Invitational.

On the downside, Tiger Woods, who’s won seven times at Firestone, struggled all day and shot a 74, his worst round ever on the course and in the tournament. Woods finished round one in 74th place, in the 81-player field.

Watson needed only 22 putts to shoot his lowest first-round score of the year. He was able to practice on the course on Sunday and it allowed him to put up seven birdies and a bogey.

This was the first time that Watson, who won the Travelers Championship in June, which was his first PGA Tour win, has led a tournament after the first round.

Phil Mickelson, Kenny Perry, Adam Scott and Graeme McDowell were all at 66, as Chad Campbell, Sean O’Hair, Jeff Overton, Bo Van Pelt and Retief Goosen finished at 67.

Mickelson was paired with Rory McIlroy and they played well together. McIlroy shot a 68 and Mickelson, who played the first 10 holes at 1 over, birdied five of the last eight.
