Graeme McDowell outputted Tiger Woods on the first playoff hole of the Chevron World Challenge, assuring that Woods, the tournament host, would finish 2010 without a tournament win.

"I fought hard. I fought really hard today, " Woods said. "...I lost it with my swing and gradually put it back together. ... It felt like I was right there."

Really hate losing, Graeme did what he needed to do to win and I didn't.less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone

Tiger Woods and Graeme McDowell are in a playoff in the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Both were 16-under par at the end of the fourth round; the bad news for Woods, who is seeking his first victory in 13 months, is that he squandered a four-stroke lead on the final day of his tournament.

Woods bogeyed two of the first three holes in regulation while Graeme McDowell made three birdies on the front nine. Woods then made a double-bogey seven at the 13th and fell two shots behind McDowell. McDowell bogeyed 14 and 17 to drop into a tie with Woods.

Woods (65-66-68-72) had led after each of the first three rounds, and he has never lost a tournament in which he entered the final round with a lead of three shots or more.
