Tiger Woods has had a rough year in 2010, but his play in the Chevron World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club showed everyone that he’s on his way back.

That said, Tiger found a way to blow a big lead on the final day.

Graeme McDowell was “ecstatic” today after capping his most incredible golfing year with a dramatic play-off win over Tiger Woods in the Chevron World Challenge in California.

“2010 has been the stuff of dreams,” McDowell admitted after his stunning $1.2 million victory, worth £765,000, in Woods’ own tournament.

“Playing one of the greatest golfers who has ever played and to beat him like this I’m just ecstatic,” McDowell added.

It looks like Tiger will have a serious rival for the foreseeable future as well.
