Deron Williams scored more points than anyone else in New Jersey Nets history. Tiger Woods shot his lowest final-round score ever.

Needless to say, Sunday was a big day for both men. But who had the bigger day?

Williams scored a franchise-record 57 points to lift the Nets to a 104-101 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats, passing the previous mark of 52 points that was shared by Mike Newlin and Ray Williams.

His rally after starting the day nine off the lead came up just short -- he finished a stroke behind winner and new world No. 1 Rory McIlroy -- but Woods' 270 total was his lowest since his most recent PGA Tour victory, at the 2009 BMW Championship.
