Tiger Woods claimed the Chevron World Challenge title on Sunday after a drought that had lasted for two years.

Woods fired two birdies on the last two holes at Sherwood Country Club to claim a win over America’s Zach Johnson, celebrating his triumph for the first time in the previous 26 events.

Ever since the infamous infidelity scandal that broke out in 2009, Woods tried to get back to normal both on and off the golf course.

He divorced his wife, struggled with injuries to his Achilles tendon and left knee ligaments and performed poorly on the 2011 PGA Tour, dropping to 128th in the PGA money list.

However, Woods’ luck began to change as he recovered from injuries and turned in a good performance at two tournaments in Australia. He took third place at the Australian Open despite the strong wind and secured the winning point for the United States at the Presidents Cup.

The former world number one golfer feels quite good about next year. If he accomplishes everything that he wants next season, he will most likely become a candidate on the ballot as comeback player of the year.
