Tiger Woods cruised to a seven-shot victory to seal his fourth Target World Challenge title after a final round of 68 at the Sherwood Country Club.

Woods had seen playing partner Jim Furyk cut his six-shot overnight lead to two at the turn, but produced an outstanding back nine when it mattered.

US Masters champion Zach Johnson secured second place, finishing ahead of compatriot Furyk on 15 under.

Lee Westwood produced the best round of the day with a 66 to finish fourth.

The victory was all the more impressive as Woods had not played since the Presidents Cup in September.

The world number one and defending champion - who will donate the $1.35m (670,109) prize money to his Tiger Woods Foundation - also equalled the course record at 22-under set by David Love III in 2000.

Woods had extended his overnight lead to seven shots after a superb approach shot at the second landed five feet short of the flag, a hole which Furyk bogeyed after finding water.

But the world number three produced four birdies in the first seven holes to put the pressure on Woods, who had bogeyed the seventh and ninth holes.

Furyk's hopes of challenging Woods ended though when he missed a four-foot putt on the 10th for a bogey four, a hole which his rival birdied.

"Jimmy (Furyk) put a ton of heat on me on the front nine," said Woods. "The whole tournament switched on the 10th. That was a big two-shot swing there."

Furyk's back nine went from bad to worse when he double-bogeyed the par-three 15th, ending his round on 71 to finish at 13 under, two shots behind Johnson.

Colin Montgomerie enjoyed his most successful day of the tournament, equalling Westwood's score of 66 to finish six under.
