Golf News, Source, World number one Tiger Woods fired a final round eight-under 64 to romp to a seven-stroke win over Phil Mickelson and his sixth PGA Grand Slam of Golf crown in Hawaii on Wednesday.Woods, who was fighting a stomach virus and nearly ruled out of the elite four-man 36-hole event after injuring his ankle winning the Dunlop Phoenix tournament in Japan, was in masterful form, posting a two-day total of 13-under 131 to maintain a perfect six-for-six record.

"I feel comfortable on this golf course," said Woods, attempting to explain his success. "I've played it in different wind conditions, the Kona, the Trades, I've played in stroke play, I've played in match play.

Mickelson, the PGA champion, closed with four-under 68 to finish runner-up on six-under 138 at the event at the Poipu Bay Golf Course in Kauai.

U.S. Open champion Michael Campbell of New Zealand returned a two-under 70 to take third place with one-under 143 while world number two Vijay Singh of Fiji was last after carding a three-under 69 for a final total of even par 144. Mickelson, who carded a final round 59 to win the Grand Slam title last year, managed to stay in touch with Woods with three birdies on his first nine but saw his hopes of reeling in the world number one vanish with a double bogey five on the par-three 11th.
