Woods Beaten At World Challenge

Zach Johnson beat world number one Tiger Woods in a play-off to win the World Challenge in California.
In a remarkable conclusion, Johnson found water with his approach at the 18th before holing from the drop zone.
Playing partner Woods then put his bunker escape to within four feet and made par to force a play-off.
At the first extra hole, again the 18th, Woods found sand once more with his approach and missed a par putt from five feet to hand Johnson victory.
Woods was the tournament host at Sherwood Country Club and aiming to win his sixth tournament of the year, although this was not an official PGA Tour event.
Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell, a two-time winner of the competition, was highest-placed European on five under in the 18-man event.
Woods and Johnson, the world number 16, finished the regulation 72 holes on 13 under par.
Woods carded a final-round 70 while Johnson fired four birdies in his last eight holes for a closing 68.
“You want to end the tournament with someone making a putt,” Johnson said after the miss from Woods handed him his second tournament victory of the year. “You don’t want to see it like that, especially when he has hit a really good sand shot.
