Amazing Tiger matches Nicklaus

TIGER Woods picked the right place to match Jack Nicklaus for career PGA Tour wins, and he did it with a shot that even left Nicklaus amazed.

Two shots behind with three holes to play, his ball in an impossible spot behind the 16th green, Woods holed a flop shot from 50 feet that turned a likely bogey into a birdie and sent him on his way to winning the Memorial by two shots.

"The most unbelievable, gutsy shot I've ever seen," Nicklaus, the tournament host, said. "Look at the position he was in. If he's short, the tournament is over. If he's long, the tournament is over. He puts it in the hole."

It was the fifth win at Muirfield Village for Woods, and the 73rd of his PGA Tour career to match Nicklaus at No 2 on the all-time list behind Sam Snead who notched 82 wins.
