Tiger-Phil showdown garners high TV ratings


CBS said Monday the overnight rating for the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am was 5.1 with a 10 share. Approximately 5.91 million people saw the telecast, accounting for a tenth of the TV audience on Sunday afternoon.

The rating is a 96 percent increase over last year, when D.A. Points grabbed his first PGA Tour title while taking the pro-am with Bill Murray.

It is the highest rating for the Pebble event since 1997, when Mark O'Meara holding off Woods and David Duval netted a 5.8 rating with a 13 share.
