Tiger Woods of Cypress won four consecutive holes on the back nine and rallied to defeat former champion Buddy Alexander on Thursday and advance to the quarterfinals of the U.S. Amateur Golf Championship on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla . "As far as comebacks are concerned, this is a pretty big one," said Woods, 18. "I've never lost a match like that," said Alexander, the 1986 Amateur champion and the golf coach at the University of Florida.

But Woods, with 18-year-old nerves, took dead aim at the pin and the championship.
