Though they lived only 20 minutes apart as youths while competing in the California junior ranks, Tiger Woods and Bob May had never faced each other before on a golf course. They saved their first close encounter for a world stage in the 82nd PGA Championship. And, the twosome dueled 21 pulsating holes in the final round in one of the most dramatic major championships. Woods salvaged his final round 67 by making a key 15-foot par putt on the 15th hole of regulation, before May missed a six-foot birdie attempt. They reached the 18th hole tied, with May sinking an 18-foot birdie putt and Woods rapping home a six-footer. Woods then birdied the first hole of the three-hole playoff, the par-4 16th, and finished by matching May with classic par saves on the final two holes. Woods and May finished with 31s on the back nine and tied for the lowest 72-hole score in relation to par (18-under-par 270) in PGA Championship history. In the process, Woods became the first player since Ben Hogan in 1953 to win three major championships in one year. He also erased a PGA "jinx" of capturing back-to-back Championships. Woods is the first to do so since Denny Shute (1936-'37), and is the first to repeat in the stroke (medal) play era of the championship that began in 1958. "The fireworks started on the back nine," Woods said. "I think it's got to go down as one of the best duels in the game, in major championships. Granted there have been some great ones, but I think this one goes up there. Both of us shoot 31 on the back nine on Sunday afternoon with no bogeys. I played the last 12 holes 7-under. That is not too bad. Hats off to Bob. He played his heart out."
