Woods is number one again

10:57 am on 27 March 2013

Tiger Woods has won the weather-delayed Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill for an eighth time to reclaim the world number one ranking for the first time since 2010.

Woods, who collected his 77th career PGA Tour win and third in five starts this season, shot a final-round two-under 70 for a 13-under total that left him two shots clear of runner-up Justin Rose of England.

With the victory, Woods returned to the top of golf's world rankings for the first time since October 2010, replacing Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy.

Looking like his old imposing self, Woods' eighth win at "Arnie's Place" ties him with World Golf Hall of Fame member Sam Snead for most victories at a single PGA Tour event.
