Micheel (69), the 2003 PGA Champion, finished 13-under 275.

In the final round, Woods, who played flawlessly over four days, shot a 4-under 68, recording his first bogey since the first hole on Thursday.

"This is sweet," he said. "Any time you can win a major championship under these circumstances, on this great golf course against this field, I'm very fortunate."

"Today I didn't drive the ball quite as well as I would have liked," Micheel admitted. "I'm not sure even if I would have hit every fairway, I would have been able to catch Tiger. He's too good."

Woods claimed a winner's check of $1,224,000.

Luke Donald (74), Adam Scott (67) and Sergio Garcia (70) tied for third at 12-under 276.
