Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell defeats Tiger Woods on playoff hole at Chevron World Challenge


Graeme McDowell pulled out an historic victory over Tiger Woods at the Chevron World Challenge golf championship when he holed a 15 footer on the first play off hole.

McDowelll celebrated his fourth victory of the year, including the US PGA title, his first ever major.
