Ogilvy ends Tiger’s perfect season

— So much for that perfect-season talk.

Not only has Tiger Woods been beaten, Geoff Ogilvy did it on a course where the world's No. 1 player looked unstoppable in recent years.

Ogilvy won the CA Championship on Monday, saving a round that seemed in peril with a chip-in for par at the 13th hole and going on to claim his second victory in a World Golf Championship event.

A final-round of 1-under 71 was good enough for him to finish at 17 under, one shot better than Retief Goosen, Jim Furyk and Vijay Singh, all closing with 68s in the rain-delayed tournament. Woods was alone in fifth at 15 under.

With the win, Ogilvy joined select company - only Woods and Darren Clarke have more than one WGC title. But this week won't be remembered for that accomplishment: It'll be known as the week someone finally took down Tiger.
