Tiger Woods failed to win a tournament for the first time in nine months, as Geoff Ogilvy triumped at the CA Championship at Doral by a stroke. The Australian, a former U.S. Open winner was able to edge out Retief Goosen, Jim Furyk and Vijay Singh in a weather delayed final round and earn his fourth career victory on the PGA Tour, according to the Associated Press.

Ogilvy was unable to birdie any of the nine holes he played on Monday, but he did chip in from 30 feet on the 13th hole to save par. Woods finished two strokes behind the leader and fifth overall. "As players, it's nice to see somebody else lift a trophy for a change," Goosen said of Ogilvy’s win. (Read more golf stories.)
