HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Tiger Woods is known for doing the unthinkable, perhaps never more so than on Sunday when he racked up his 69th PGA Tour victory at the Buick Open.
Leading by three strokes on the final hole of the tournament, Woods allegedly broke wind in a fart heard around the world. Others claim that the "great out" heard on television came from the gallery.
Woods wound up shooting a 3-under 69 as he coasted to a 20-under 268 total at Warwick Hills. It was his fourth win of the season in just 11 starts since returning from a 2008 knee surgery. He also improved to 36-1 when holding the outright lead after 54 holes of a tournament.
The victory also moved Woods another step closer to the all-time PGA tour win record. He trails only Sam Snead (82) and Jack Nicklaus (73).
Woods reached victory No. 69 at the age of 33 years and seven months — almost 7 years quicker than Nicklaus and eight years faster than Snead.
