Ernie Els bounced back into the big time when he ended two years without a win at the WGC-CA Championship in Miami.
The 40-year-old captured the second of this season's world championships - and his 63rd professional title - by a commanding four-shot margin after what developed into a straight head-to-head with his fellow South African Charl Schwartzel.
Three strokes further back in joint third were German Martin Kaymer, American Matt Kuchar and Ireland's Padraig Harrington, whose closing 72 was never going to give him a chance on a day of low scoring.
"I've had a tough run and I really wanted to play well," he said after a 66 gave him an 18 under par total on the same Doral course where he held off Tiger Woods to win the 2002 Genuity Championship.
"I just wanted to prove it myself for once. I had to really trust the changes I've just made. The wind was blowing and you had to hit solid shots. Charl came at me all day and I have to take a lot of positives out of this."
It was his second victory in the event. Under former sponsor American Express he lifted the title at Mount Juliet in Ireland in 2004.
Tiger Woods will return to professional golf at the Masters on Thursday, April 8 2010. The world's No. 1 player had taken an "indefinite" leave from the game late last year after a Thanksgiving night car crash and subsequent revelations of serial adultery.
Woods, who has won the Masters four times, has been seen playing golf recently after months of therapy and was expected to return to the game soon. Woods said he thought the Masters was the best place for him to resume his career.
"The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it's been a while since I last played," Woods said. "When I finally got into a position to think about competitive golf again, it became apparent to me that the Masters would be the earliest I could play.
Rory McIlroy has been knocked out of the world's top 10 following his dismal showing at the WGC-CA Championship.
The 20-year-old Northern Irishman, ninth on the rankings entering the event, finished joint 65th of the 68 players.
He drops to 11th on the new list after being overtaken by Doral winner Ernie Els and Padraig Harrington, who came joint third.
Paul Casey was in a tie for sixth and so moves just above Ian Poulter in fifth.

A golf course has been carved out of a patch of New Zealand paradise, the result of one mans vision coupled with the spirited assistance of a few hard working Kiwis. New Zealands pioneering spirit shows itself once again with the creation of The Hills.
The Hills opened in 2007 and is set over 101 hectares (250 acres) of a former deer farm on the outskirts of Arrowtown in Central Otago, South Island New Zealand. Its 366m above sea level.
