Tiger Woods Wins First Golf Tournament Since Scandal
1 year ago
After losing 26 official tournaments, Woods is finally in the swing of things
Golf pro Tiger Woods won his first golf tournament on Sunday after a sex scandal that cost him his marriage and millions of dollars in endorsements.
According to the LA Times, Woods beat out Zach Johnson by one putt, winning the Chevron World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks. The proceeds to Sunday's win, where Woods finished 10 under par, will benefit Woods' foundation.
The Tiger Woods Foundation helps youth gain access to higher education. The foundation, which has a 35,000-square-foot education facility in Southern California, was founded by Woods and his father Earl in 1996.
This marks the first win since the 2009 scandal where the golf pro crashed his vehicle on Thanksgiving night after his then-wife discovered his multiple sexual affairs. Since then, Woods has competed in 16 unsuccessful golf tournaments.
