Geoff Ogilvy hung on to win the Doral Championship by posting 17-under, shooting a safe 71 in the final round. The leaderboard looked like a “who’s who” list of the best players in golf, with Jim Furyk, Vijay Singh, and Retief Goosen all tied for second at -16.

Amazingly, Tiger Woods, who had an off day for this 3rd round (which extended over 2 rainy days), managed to finish at 15-under, two shots back. Adam Scott who shared the lead for some of the third round finished back in ninth place at -12.

If you did not catch the 3rd round, it was a rare sight to behold: two younger generation players, Geoff Ogilvy and Adam Scott, actually playing better than Tiger Woods in the same threesome. Is this a preview of a few years from now? Ogilvy already has 1 major under his belt and seems to have the DNA to handle the pressure. As for Adam Scott, he’s won the TPC Players Championship, but still seems not to be living up to the hype.
