A year ago Tiger Woods withdrew from play in his final round at Doral due to tightness in his Achilles tendon. This time around, though, nothing could slow Woods down on his way to winning the 2013 Cadillac Championship.

Woods shot a 1-under 71 on Sunday to capture his 17th World Golf Championship, finishing at 19-under overall for the tournament. He was able to play conservatively down the stretch, ultimately taking a bogey on the final hole to close out his Sunday campaign.

Steve Stricker finished at 17-under for the tournament, coming two strokes short of Woods' mark. Stricker shot a 4-under 68 to finish his impressive weekend, but it wasn't enough for to catch the surging leader. For the full results, click here.

This was win No. 76 for Woods, adding another trophy to his illustrious collection. With 27 birdies in 72 holes, it felt like the Tiger of old had finally returned. He needed just 100 putts for all four rounds, marking the the fewest in his entire PGA Tour career, according to Justin Ray of ESPN. Woods earned $1.5 million for his victory at Doral.
