NBC scores with Tiger Woods' win

PGA coverage earns net best golf rating since U.S. Open

Tiger Woods' comeback victory Sunday on the PGA Tour gave NBC Sports its best overnight rating for a golf event since last year's U.S. Open.

NBC earned a 4.9 overnight rating/10 share in adults 18-49, a 23% increase on last year's rating and the best for a final round of the Bay Hill tournament in seven years, when Woods also won in 2002. It also was the highest-rated tour event in two years, excluding major championships.

Woods' victory was his sixth in the Bay Hill event.

Sunday's rating peaked at a 7.8 as NBC's coverage bled into primetime on the East Coast.
