It's incredible, first off, that Tiger Woods has won the Memorial Tournament five times.
He sealed the 5th win at Jack Nicklaus' hometown tournament… which is perfect, because that 5th victory wasn't the only thing to happen!
Tiger fittingly matched Jack's career total of 73 PGA Tour victories in the process!
Here's what Jack said:
“Well, he had to rub it in my face right here, didn't he?”
Tiger had to get rid of a two-shot deficit over the final four holes by making three birdies. So it wasn't easy, but he pulled it off!
Here's what Tiger had to say:
“It was nice to see Jack there. He means a lot to all of us as players, and we all looked up to him, and he's the greatest champion that's ever lived.”
He beat Nicklaus to the 73-win mark by exactly 10 years and two days.
