Thousand Oaks, Dec 18: Tiger Woods wrapped up a remarkable season on Sunday (December 17) at the Target World Challenge, seizing the lead from U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy in just three holes and coasting to a 6-under 66 for a four-shot victory in the last tournament of the year.
The Target World Challenge was his 11th trophy of the year. While it doesn't count in the record books, Woods donates the $1.35 million prize to his Tiger Woods Learning Center that opened in February.
Australian Geoff Ogilvy bogeyed the par-5 second hole and never recovered, falling two shots behind and trailing by four at the turn. He closed with a 71 to finish at 276. Chris DiMarco also shot 71 and finished third.
Woods was in the second-to-last group, one shot behind Ogilvy, and turned it around quickly. He holed a birdie putt on the second hole, then chipped in for birdie on the par-3 third to catch Ogilvy.
That turned into a lead a few minutes later when the 29-year-old Aussie took bogey that derailed him.
Tiger Woods, who skipped the final five PGA Tour events -- including the Tour Championship -- has not said whether he will start his 2007 season at the winners-only Mercedes-Benz Championship in Hawaii on Jan. 4, or wait until the Buick Invitational three weeks later.
