One day after his course-record 62 gave him a seven-shot lead, Woods made sure no one else had a chance Sunday in the BMW Championship. He closed with a 3-under 68 for an eight-shot victory over Jim Furyk and Marc Leishman.

It was his sixth victory of the year, and assured Woods the No. 1 ranking going into the final tournament of the FedEx Cup and its $10 million prize. Woods won for the fifth time at Cog Hill, and it was his 10th career victory by at least eight shots.

He also tied the tournament record, set last year by Jim Furyk outside St. Louis at Bellerive.

"After I got past the first hole I was doing all right,'' Woods said. "It was one of those days that kind of built upon itself.''
