Tiger Woods won his first golf tournament in two years Sunday when he sank a birdie putt on the 18th hole to edge Zach Johnson by one shot and capture the Chevron World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks.

Woods finished at 10 under par to win his own tournament, which benefits Woods’ charitable foundation, for the fifth time after he and Johnson, the 2007 Masters winner, had a see-saw match throughout the round.

Woods birdied the last two holes to secure the win, his first since the world’s former No. 1 golfer was engulfed in a personal scandal that erupted Thanksgiving weekend in 2009. The Chevron World Challenge is not a PGA Tour event, though, with an 18-player invitational field.

It was Woods’ first victory since the Australian Masters on Nov. 15, 2009, a duration that included 26 official tournaments. Less than two weeks later, Woods crashed his car on Thanksgiving night outside his Florida home amid revelations of extramarital affairs.
