BBC SPORT | Golf | Woods returns as world number one

Tiger Woods reclaimed his place as world number one after beating Phil Mickelson by one shot to win the Ford Championship title in Florida.

Woods trailed Mickelson by two strokes going into the final round in Miami but carded a 66 to end on 24-under-par.

Mickelson was still one up at the turn but Woods fired a eagle at the 12th and a birdie at the 17th to take the lead.

Woods had held top spot for a record 264 straight weeks before losing the honour to Vijay Singh last September.

Singh, who was number one for 26 weeks, fired a final-round 68 to end on 19 under with Zach Johnson.
