It has been almost 3 years since a sex scandal broke out involving Tiger Woods. The scandal affected his marriage and eventually to a divorce. Woods has never won a PGA Tour tournament since the scandal broke out. The drought ended today as Tiger Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Woods was leading after 54 holes and finished with a 70 today for a 5 shot victory over Graeme McDowell.

Woods joined 26 PGA Tour events in the span of the drought. He came close several times and many times he also got derailed by injuries.  He won the the Chevron World Challenge last December which had a field of 18 top players in the world.

The victory at Bayhill is the 72nd PGA title for  the former No.1 player. He is now 1 behind the legendary Jack Niklaus in PGA Tour wins. With the win, Woods will be ranked No.6 in the next world golf rankings.
