Woods successfully defended his title with a 21 under par total of 259 while Price shot a 69 to tie Justin Leonard for second on 270, ten under par.
Final results & prize money
SUPERB PRICE HEADS THE TIGER HUNT IN AKRON
Tiger Woods takes a massive nine stroke lead into the final round of the WGC-NEC Invitational at Firestone Country Club, Akron, Ohio, after shooting a 67 for a three round total of 192 in his defence of the title. Welshman Phillip Price conjured up a superb 66 – equalling the best of the day – to make a dramatic move and the 33 year old from Newport sets off in pursuit of the World No.1 in the rarified atmosphere of joint second place with Hal Sutton and Phil Mickelson.
WOODS SEVEN STROKES CLEAR IN AKRON
Tiger Woods continued to defy golfing logic at Firestone Country Club by setting the new US PGA Tour record of 125 for the first two rounds of the WGC-NEC Invitational, while at the same time equalling José Maria Olazábal’s ten year old course record of 61. The 24 year old World No.1, far from displaying fatigue from winning three majors in the last two months, seemed positively energised as he fired a wonderful nine under par round in the blazing sunshine to leave his rivals trailing by seven shots.
No let-up from woods
Tiger Woods showed no sign of slowing down as he followed his gruelling US PGA Championship victory on Sunday with a superb six under par 64 to lead after the first round of the WGC-NEC Invitational at Firestone Country Club, Akron, Ohio.
