Golf ratings up 188 percent Sunday: Wonder if a certain golfer won?

The Tiger Woods factor strikes again. From CBS:

CBS Sports’ final-round coverage of the AT&T NATIONAL on Sunday, July 1 (3:00-6:45 PM, ET), which saw Tiger Woods win his third PGA TOUR event this season and pass Jack Nicklaus with 74 PGA TOUR wins, delivered an average overnight household rating/share of 4.6/10, up 188% from last year’s 1.6/4 in the metered markets. (Note:  Ratings for Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Baltimore and Columbus are excluded due to severe weather).

This year’s rating tied with 2009 as the highest rating for the final-round since the tournament debuted in 2007.

 Sunday’s final-round rating peaked at a 6.8/14 (6:30-6:45 PM,)


And in a rarity, Woods is playing in back-to-back events. He is in the field in the Greenbriar Classic. Last year, Scott Stallings (who?) won.

If Woods is in the hunt again on Sunday, look for another 188 percent, and then some.
