Tiger Woods is in ominous form ahead of next week's US Open, coming from four strokes behind to win the Memorial golf tournament by a shot.

The world number one sealed his 67th PGA Tour victory with a dramatic birdie-birdie finish.

He tapped in the putt for his seventh birdie of the day and a seven-under-par 65 at Muirfield Village Golf Club before removing his cap to acknowledge the roars from the crowd.

Woods won the tournament for a record fourth time with a 12-under total of 276, finishing ahead of fellow American Jim Furyk who rolled in a 22-foot birdie putt at the 18th for a 69.
