Woods cruises to 2nd win of the year…Final scores all tours.
WORLD GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP – CADILLAC CHAMPIONSHIP
COURSE: TPC Blue Monster at Doral (7,334 yards, par 72).
PURSE: $8.75 million. Winner’s share: $1,575,000.
NOTES: Round 4
pgatour.com Tiger Woods had full control of his game and never let anyone get closer than three shots until he had locked up his 17th World Golf Championship title. With a conservative bogey that didn’t matter on the final hole, he closed with a 1-under 71
Woods now has five wins in the last year, the most of anyone in the world, and he can return to No. 1 with a win at Bay Hill in two weeks.
He won by two shots over Steve Stricker, who might want to claim a share of this trophy.
Woods ran into Stricker on the putting green Wednesday afternoon, and in a 45-minute session, Stricker helped him with his posture over putts. Woods left feeling as good as he did at Torrey Pines, where he won by four shots. And it showed. Woods made 27 birdies this week, one short of his personal best on the PGA TOUR, and he took the fewest putts (100) over 72 holes in any TOUR event.
Rory McIlroy, the No. 1 player in the world, showed signs of recovering from his rough start to the season. He had a 65 and tied for eighth.
Graeme McDowell, who started the final round four shots behind, made a birdie on the opening hole, but never got any closer. McDowell had third place to himself until he went for the green on the 18th hole and found the water. He made double bogey, shot 72 and fell into a four-way tie for third that cost him $172,500.
Phil Mickelson (71), Sergio Garcia (69) and Adam Scott (64) also tied for third

NOTES Round 4
pgatour..com Scott Brown went from a one-shot deficit to a one-shot victory Sunday in the Puerto Rico Open when he made a 4-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole to beat Fabian Gomez and capture his first PGA TOUR title.
Brown picked up 300 FedExCup points with his victory, a two-year exemption on TOUR and spots in THE PLAYERS Championships and the PGA Championship
Gomez tied for second with 19-year-old Jordan Spieth, who was playing on a sponsor exemption and now is exempt into the Tampa Bay Championship. Spieth shot a 67.
Justin Bolli (66) and Brian Stuard (68) were another shot behind.

NOTES: Round 4
Kevin Kisner fired a 4-under-par 68 Sunday to win the Chile Classic and earn his second career title on the Web.com Tour. Kisner, one of three 54-hole co-leaders, played the final five holes at the Prince of Wales Country Club one-over par but his 21-under 267 score was enough to edge out Brice Garnett (68) and Edward Loar (69) by one stroke for the trophy.
Guy Boros (65) and hometown favorite Benjamin Alvarado (71) tied for fourth at 18-under. Five others shared sixth place at minus-17 but the weeklong birdie fest in Santiago belonged to Kisner, who figured he might be in the mix despite playing poorly in Panama and Colombia.
