Tiger Woods tied Jack Nicklaus on 73 PGA Tour victories after sinking a sensational chip from off the green late in the final round of the Memorial Tournament on Sunday.
The former world No. 1 was congratulated by the legendary "Golden Bear" after completing a five-under-par 67 which gave Woods a two-shot victory.
Nicklaus, who founded the Ohio tournament and designed its Muirfield Village course, said the 36-year-old's chip from the rough at the par-three 16th hole was "the gutsiest and best shot I've ever seen in my life."
Woods' second victory this year left him second equal in the all-time PGA list, nine behind the late Sam Snead.
"I've been very proud of what I've done so far and I feel like I've got a lot of years ahead of me," said Woods, who raised his hopes of a first major win since 2008 at this month's U.S. Open. He has 14 already -- four behind Nicklaus' record total.
He trailed leader Spencer Levin by four shots going into the final round, but four birdies in his first seven holes kept him in contention -- and three in the last four gave him his fifth victory at the event.
Woods' 67 was the equal best round of the day, matching that of Argentina's Andres Romero -- who tied for second with South Africa's Rory Sabbatini.
