On this day – January 12, 1997; Tiger Woods wins the Mercedes Championship; his third win in nine PGA Tour starts

Tiger Woods won the Mercedes in incredible fashion for his third win

Tiger Woods captured the third win of his career.  This was Tigers third win in nine total starts on the PGA Tour.  The 1997 Mercedes Championship was plagued with ugly wet weather that shortened the even to 54 holes.  They attempted the play the final round as half of the field was not he course when they decided to halt play.  The PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem and Tournament directors agreed upon a sudden death playoff between the two players tied at the top of the leaderboard.

After 54 holes Tom Lehman and Tiger Woods were tied both at -14 under which gave them entry into the playoff.  It was a disappointing way to end the first tournament of the year but the playoff didn’t fail to give the tournament a flashy finish.  It was quite fitting that the 1996 Player of the Year (Lehman) & Rookie of the Year (Woods) would duke it out.
