Tiger notches career win #70

Does anyone get the idea that Tiger Woods likes winning?

With the win today, he:

  • has 70 career wins (3rd on all time list behind Nicklaus and Snead)
  • has 7 career wins at Firestone
  • is in first place in Fed Ex Cup
  • is in first place on the money list
  • has 5 wins in 2009 (the most on tour)
  • has his 3rd come from behind win this year
  • has back to back wins
  • has now won his last tournament heading into a major for the 4th time this year
  • heads into the PGA Championship a heavy favorite (as usual)

I hope everyone is enjoying the Tiger Woods story as we will never see anything like this again. He is the Michael Jordan, Babe Ruth, and Muhammad Ali of his sport. It will definitely be interesting to see how long he plays, and how many wins and records he puts away.
