    DORAL, Fla. -- That red shirt is starting to look ruthless on Sunday again.

    One year after Tiger Woods hobbled off the Blue Monster, he picked up the pace in his march to the Masters. Woods delivered two quick birdies to take the drama out of Doral, and two late bogeys only made his victory in the Cadillac Championship seem closer than it really was.

    Woods had full control of his game and never let anyone get closer than three shots until he had locked up his 17th World Golf Championship title. With a conservative bogey that didn't matter on the final hole, he closed with a 1-under 71.

    For the first time in five years, Woods has two wins before the Masters.

    And both of them were dominant

    "That's how I know I can play," Woods said. "That's the thing. To be able to bring it out a couple times so far this year -- and then be able to close and get the Ws on top of that -- that's nice. Any time I can win prior to Augusta, it always feels good."

    And to think it was one year ago Sunday that Woods withdrew after 11 holes in the final round at Doral because of tightness in his left Achilles tendon, the same injury that had forced him to sit out most of the previous summer. It created uncertainty about his health and whether he ever could get his game back.
