PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods ended a weekend of verbal sparring with Garcia by doing what he does best Sunday — closing out tournaments.

Tied with Garcia with two holes to play, Woods won by finding land on the last two holes for par to close with a 2-under 70.

Garcia was standing on the 17th tee shot, staring across the water to an island as Woods made his par. He took aim at the flag with his wedge and hung his head when he saw the ball splash down short of the green. Then, Garcia hit another one in the water on his way to a quadruple-bogey 7. He completed his stunning collapse with a tee shot into the water on the 18th, making double bogey.
