Tiger Woods has won golf's Players Championship for the second time at the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass in Florida.

The World number one Woods shot a final round of two-under par to finish the tournament at 13-under.

Woods was tied with his rival Sergio Garcia with two holes to play, but the Spaniard put three balls in the water on the final two holes to give the American a two stroke victory.

Swedish rookie David Lingmerth and Americans Jeff Maggert and Kevin Streelman finished in a tie for second at 11-under par.

Woods' win is his fourth of the season and earns him the biggest cheque in golf of two-million dollars.
