Tiger Woods: By the numbers at Congressional

 Tiger Woods won for the 74th time on the PGA Tour Sunday, taking the AT & T National at Congressional Country Club. Woods surpassed Jack Nicklaus on the all-time wins list and now trails only Sam Snead. With the win, he vaulted into 1st place on the PGA Tour money list and 1st place on the Fed Ex Cup points list. So much for all the geniuses who said he would never win again, as he now leads the Tour with three wins in 2012.

A look at his numbers for the week:

Round 1: 72
Round 2: 68
Round 3: 67
Round 4: 69
Total: -8

Eagles: 1 (T2)
Birdies: 11 (T45)
Pars: 55 (1)
Scrambling: 1st
Driving accuracy: 53.6% (T46)
Driving distance: 298.6 (34)
Putts per round: 28 (9)
Greens in reg: 66.7% (T17)
Sand saves: 33.3% (T41)

Next stop will be West Virginia starting this Thursday at the Greenbrier Classic.
