Tiger Woods wins the 2007 PGA Championship

 After a bad start, Tiger Woods proved he is the world number one for a reason, winning his 13th major.

Tiger Woods wins the 2007 PGA Championship Great Sunday for Tiger Woods as he went forward to win the PGA Championship for a second consecutive year and fourth PGA Championship title in his career. He started the first day of the tournament tied for 27th place, but quickly recovered to grab yet another victory on the golf course, finishing with a total of 8-under par 272. An amazing Round 2 sealed the victory when eight birdies and one bogey gave him seven under par, and from then - it was child's play. Before the 2007 PGA Championship, Tiger Woods was listed as the favorite to win with odds 9/4 by Bodog Sports.

 It seems that the biggest surprise was not Woods winning the PGA, but that his wife Elin Woods and his 2-month-old daughter Sam Alexis were present at the competition.

 "It's a feeling I've never had before. Having Sam there and having Elin there, it feels a lot more special. And it used to be my mom and dad. And now Elin, and now we have our own daughter. So it's evolved, and this one feels so much more special than the other majors," Woods said after the victory.

 Woody Austin and Ernie Els were competition, but not enough to beat the Tiger. Austin finished 3-under in Round 4 with a total of 6-under par 274, two shots away from Woods, and Ernie Els pushed the envelope for 4-under par in the final round to give the South African golfer a total of 5-under par 275.

 Ernie Els summarized it best: "To come back from six back against the world's No. 1 was always going to be tough. But I gave it a shot."

Here are the top ten at the final 2007 PGA Championship leaderboard:

1 Tiger Woods -8 272
2 Woody Austin -6 274
3 Ernie Els -5 275
T4 John Senden -1 279
