Golfer Tiger Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday by one shot. The victory extends his PGA Tour win streak to five and keeps his perfect season intact. Woods is now tied for third place on the all-time win list with one of the greats, Ben Hogan.

His win Sunday is as good an indicator as any of how, at the age of 32, Woods dominates his sport unlike any other athlete in the world. Over four dramatic days, Woods struggled, adjusted and ultimately dazzled his way to a victory that he says would've made Hogan proud. It was his 64th PGA victory.

Woods plays the World Golf Championships at Doral in Miami starting Thursday. He has won there the past three years.
