Woods Wins 36-Hole PGA event


World No.1 golfer Tiger Woods showed little sign of a stomach problem when he fired an 8-under-par 64 to capture the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Kauai, Hawaii Wednesday.

Woods eagled two par-five holes and had five birdies and one bogey in his round. The world number one fought a stomach virus in the first round Tuesday, but had little trouble Wednesday on the Poipu Bay Golf Course.

Woods, the U.S. Masters and British Open winner, finished the 36-hole event at 13-under-par 131 to take the $450,000 top prize.

Defending champion Phil Mickelson of the United States finished second after shooting a final-round 68 to go to 6-under-par 138. New Zealand's Michael Campbell, the U.S. Open champion, finished third at 1-under-par 143 while world No. 2 Vijay Singh of Fiji finished at even par 144.

The event was open to winners of this year's major tournaments on the PGA tour. Singh was given a special exemption because of his overall performance in major tournaments.
