Tiger Woods recorded his 56th PGA Tour title on Sunday by winning the WGC-CA Championship at the Doral Resort & Spa in Miami, Fla.
Woods finished at 10-under, two better than his Sunday playing partner, Brett Wetterich, who despite a late charge could not close the gap.
The road to his 13th WGC title started slowly, with Woods struggling with his putter and tied for 10th place after the first round. But a weekend of steady golf chipped away at the field, and Woods started Sunday up strokes on the field.
Here\'s what Woods had to say after the win, as he looks ahead to Augusta National and The Masters in two weeks.
Q. Brett said you make it look easy out there. Was it easy for you?
TIGER WOODS: No, today I struggled a little bit on the greens today, getting the pace down. The wind was a little blustery and I had a hard time figuring out the grain and which way it was going, because some of the putts, the grain, like on 8, over the years past, that putt is dead downgrain, if not right-to-left. And that putt was in the grain, you know, coming out of the left, and that\'s complete opposite of how it used to play. Again, I was putting by memory and probably shouldn\'t have done that.
Q. Can you take us through 18?
TIGER WOODS: I had a three-shot lead, if I dump the ball in the water, you know, and I\'ve got a three-shot lead so if I dump the ball in the water I try and go from it there. Obviously the scenario is draw back, put the ball in the bunker, blast out two, putt, and next thing you know I\'m making 7, he makes 3, he wins the tournament. I make 5, he can\'t win the tournament. So I laid up, hit 3-iron off the tee and 8-iron and a wedge and just 2-putted and tournament was over.
