Tiger Woods stormed home to capture his 73rd US PGA Tour victory with a two-shot win in the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village in Ohio.

Woods joins Jack Nicklaus, the designer and host at Muirfield, in second place on the US PGA all-time wins list after he shot a five under 67 final round to beat Rory Sabbatini and Andres Romero.

The now five-time Memorial champion holed an incredible chip shot for birdie from 50 feet and thick rough on the 16th hole on his way to an nine-under par 279 total.

Woods is now just nine wins behind Sam Snead's record 82 wins on the US Tour.
