Woods, "Invincible at Extension"

Posted May. 22, 2002 09:06,   


`Golf King` Tiger Woods (U.S.A.) was, after all, `the man of playoffs`.

The final 4th round of the European Tour Deutsche Bank- SAP Open took place at St. Leon-Rot Golf Course (par 72) in Heidelberg, Germany, on the 21st.

After getting even with Colin Montgomerie (Scotland) by final-score of 20-under 268 and no bogey in 55 holes in a raw, Woods earned a par at the 3rd hole to confirm his victory.

Woods won the second consecutive title for the first time since the tournament began in 1992, enjoying the third trophy in recent 4 years. Winning prize marked 410,222 dollars.

In comparison with Woods, who recorded total 9 wins and 2 losses in playoffs, Montgomerie revealed weakness in extensions, as he scored a disappointing result of 1 win and 13 losses.
