Tiger Woods at Arnold Palmer Invitational: Live Score, Results from Final Round

Ben Alberstadt@benalberstadtFeatured ColumnistMarch 25, 2013

Tiger Woods tapped in for victory at the 18th hole at Bay Hill, raised his putter to thank the crowd and walked off the course to shake Arnold Palmer's hand for the eighth time. It was a relatively anticlimactic end to a day where a Tiger Woods victory seemed very much a foregone conclusion.

With the two-shot victory today, Woods firmly establishes himself as the favorite for the Masters and moves into the top spot of the Official World Golf Rankings, usurping Rory McIlroy. He has now tied Sam Snead for the most wins at a single tournament.

"I play well here," Tiger told Steve Sands just after the round.

Indeed, he does. And with a now-public relationship with Lindsey Vonn and four victories so far this year, Woods has truly returned to form.
