Anyway, Tiger also happened to match Ben Hogan's all time PGA Tour victory tally while winning his fifth official event in a row, and his sixth or seventh straight worldwide win, depending on whether you count the Target World Challenge.
But really, doesn't that pale when compared to stopping the Bryants?
Doug Ferguson's game story also includes these notes:
His average score during the PGA Tour streak is 66.13, and his dominance is such that he has more career victories than Mickelson and Vijay Singh combined.
Woods finished at 10-under 270 and earned $1,044,000, putting him on the cusp of going over $80 million for his career.
And because even the AP writer can't always get in the most important facts, Tiger's FedEx Cup points total is at 13,725, well ahead of Phil Mickelson.
