Tiger Woods won his 8th PGA tournament at Bay Hill in Orlando on Monday, capturing the rain-delayed Arnold Palmer Invitational by two strokes over Justin Rose, and catapulting back to the number-one position in the World Golf Rankings.

After playing just two holes of the final round on Sunday because of an inch-and-a-half rainstorm, wind gusts of 62 miles per hour and an accompanying tornado warning, Woods closed his final round on Monday at 2-under-par 70, clinching his 77th Tour victory, and winning $1.116 million.

His four-day total was 13-under-par 275.

Woods last topped the world rankings in October, 2010.  He had slipped to as low as #58.  Bay Hill was his third victory this year, and his sixth win dating back to the same tournament one year ago.

Rose closed at -11.  Rickie Fowler, Keegan Bradley, Mark Wilson and Gonzalo Fernandez-Costano tied for third place at -8.
