Proud Tiger Woods: "I have a lot of good years ahead of me."
The former world number one was ecstatic after sealing victory at the Memorial Tournament.

A THRILLED TIGER WOODS says his win at the Memorial Tournament on Sunday proves he has ‘a lot of good years’ left.

Woods won by two shots at the Muirfield Village Golf Club after a five-under 67 took him from fourth to first in the final round.

The win was the 73rd of Woods’ career on the PGA Tour, moving him into equal second on the all-time list, alongside Jack Nicklaus.

“It has been a pretty nice run since I turned pro. To do it at age 36, that’s not too shabby,” Woods said.

“I have been very proud of what I have done so far. I have a lot of good years ahead of me.”

Woods managed three birdies on the final four holes on Sunday, including a top-class chip on the 16th, which tournament host Nicklaus described as the best he had ever seen at the course.

“Look at the position he was in,” Nicklaus said. “If he’s short, the tournament is over. If he’s long, the tournament is over. He puts it in the hole.”

Woods was thrilled with his performance, and said it was a near perfect display.

“Boy I hit it good today,” Woods said. “That was some really good golf out there. I never really missed a shot today.”
