You know what, he did hang on. That iron shot Tiger hit on 18 was very, very close to being one of the worst he's ever hit. He came within a foot or two of that ball rolling back in the water. Then, he would've had to get it up and down for the win, no small task.
It just goes to show you that it's hard to win on tour. Tiger dominated for 71 holes, then gets a little sloppy on 18 and almost went into a playoff with Stricker. It can change in a heartbeat out there.
