Woods’ win over the weekend has put him within reach of reclaiming the No. 1 spot in the world. Already the favorite for the Masters, all Woods needs to be back at the top is a win at Bay Hill in two weeks, as stated on the PGA website.

Runner-up Stricker spent almost an hour on the day before the tournament helping Woods practice his putts. This mini lesson would translate into 27 birdies for Woods over the course of the week.

"Thank you to Steve for the putting lesson," Woods said at the trophy presentation, as stated on "It was one of those weeks where I felt pretty good about how I was playing, made a few putts and got it rolling."
