June 3, 2012; Dublin, OH, USA: Tiger Woods reacts after missing an eagle putt on the seventh hole during the final round of the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club.  Mandatory Credit: Eric P. Mull-USPRESSWIREFor the 73rd time in his career, Tiger Woods won a professional tournament, placing him in a tie with the legendary Jack Nicklaus for the 2nd most all time, only 9 behind Sam Snead.

Woods shot a 67 in the final round to clinch the victory, finishing with a -9 for the tournament.

Now, it's time for everyone to ask if Tiger's back, and if this means he'll return to dominance and start winning Majors.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, this isn't the first time he has shown flashes of brilliance since his return. Let Tiger enjoy this one, and we'll see if it's a long-term change or just a blip on the radar.

One of the highlights of the tournament was Woods' incredible chip-in on the 16th. Since words can't really do it justice, here's a video:

Congrats to Tiger on yet another win, and let's see where he goes from here.
