NEW YORK (AP) -- Tiger Woods' victory at the U.S. Open on Sunday delivered the highest overnight television ratings ever for the second of golf's Grand Slam events.
Woods' riveting win by three shots over Phil Mickelson at the Bethpage Black course in Farmingdale, N.Y., was seen in more than 9 million homes, and had a record 9.3 rating and a 21 share for NBC.
The rating was the highest for the U.S. Open since Nielsen Media Research began tracking overnights in 1975.
