Tiger Woods has finally won a big time tournament, rallying late on Sunday afternoon to win The Memorial in front of thousands of onlookers and Jack Nicklaus, who hosts the event each summer. Woods shot poorly on Saturday, but a fourth round 67 (-5) propelled him over Rory Sabatini, Andres Romero and others.

Tiger birded three of his final four holes, including a masterful chip on 16 that sent the gallery into an uproar. We even got a patented Tiger Woods Fist Pump after nailing the shot, which was pretty damn cool.

Here is video of the chip everyone will be talking about.

Woods birded on holes No. 2, 5, 6, 7, 15, 16 and 18, and he bogeyed eight and 10.

He shot nine-under-par for The Memorial, two shots ahead of Romero and Sabatini.

The win ties Woods with Nicklaus for second all-time, which is pretty incredible given all of his struggles both on and off the course the last few years. His career earnings surpassed $110 million with the championship.
