Tiger Woods’ win at the Chevron World Challenge turned out to be a special one. It’ll be the last tournment with the Chevron name.

Chevron has decided not to renew its title sponsorship of the tournament that Woods hosts to benefit his foundation at Sherwood Country Club. Chevron had been the title sponsor for four years.

Woods won the tournament five times, although it was the first time he won it under the Chevron World Challenge name.

Tournament director Greg McLaughlin did announce that Sherwood Country Club has extended the hosting contract through 2015.

The tournament has had three title sponsors since its inception year of 1999.

Finally after two years, Tiger Woods wins a golf tournament

Tiger Woods has overcome a bunch of distractions in the past two years totaling 26 tournaments.

He has gone winless on the PGA Tour, lost several key endorsements, turmoil which ended his marriage and has overhauled his golf game several times.

Recently, he has done well in the Presidents’ Cup and now the Chevron World Challenge which he won.

The 35-year-old golf star won the tournament on a 6-foot birdie putt which he made to cap off a birdie-birdie finish at Sherwood in Thousand Oaks, California.  The California native closed the final round with a 3-under-par 69 and beat former Masters champion Zach Johnson by a single shot.

Woods won the event which he is the host for his charity foundation, for the fifth time. Overall for the week, he finished at 10-under-278 and donated the winner’s purse of $1.2 million to his foundation.

Woods, trailing by one shot with two holes to play, showed his old magic making clutch putts. He holed a 15-foot for birdie on the par-3 17th hole to get into a tie with Johnson. Then he hit a 9-iron from 158 yards that landed on the ridge behind the hole and rolled down to 6 feet.

Endorsements coming back Tiger Woods’ way

Tiger Woods is starting to get sponsors interested in him again for endorsements.

He finally has found a sponsor for his golf bag.

It was announced recently that Woods had sign an exclusive endorsement deal with Fuse Science, Inc., a sports nutrition company based in Florida.

This is the second endorsement deal in five weeks for Woods. He previously agreed to be a spokesman for Rolex.

The deal is an endorsement for his golf bag. But the deal won’t kick in until the Chevron World Challenge which starts on December 1 in California.

Woods has not had a sponsor on his golf bag since AT&T dropped him almost two years ago when the extramarital affairs scandal rocked the world. He has had his TW logo on his bag since that time.

Time off the course helps Woods; leads the Australian Open

Tiger Woods kept saying that all he needed to do to resurrect his golf game was to take time off to work on every facet, putting, driving, chipping and distance.

Well, it must have worked.

Woods left the golf course on Friday seeing his name atop the leaderboard in the Australian Open.

Looking like the Tiger of old, he put together his best back-to-back rounds of the year with a 5-under-par 67 that put him ahead of the pack with a one-shot lead going into the weekend at The Lakes.

Woods is at 9-under-par 135, one shot ahead of an old nemesis, Peter O’Malley. A member of The Lakes, O’Malley finished the day with a 66, and is best remembered by golf fans for beating Woods in the opening round of the Match Play Championship at La Costa in 2002.

This is the first time Woods has led a tournament since the third round of the Chevron World Challenge in 2010, and the first time against a full field since his last victory two years ago in the Australian Masters tournament. Also, Woods did tie for the lead at The Barclays last year after the first round.

Tiger Woods did not play in the BMW Championship, but is still a winner.

Woods slipped to #49 in the world rankings on Sunday, but it means that he’ll be eligible for the Chevron World Challenge, the tournament he hosts in his native Southern California.

The tournament will be played December 1-4 at Sherwood Country Club.

Woods was at #46 in the world rankings before the BMW Championship started but was passed by Geoff Ogilvy, Sergio Garcia and Bill Haas.

If Tiger had not been ranked in the Top 50, the Chevron World Challenge would’ve used one of their two exemptions on him.
