Manchester United has been leading the English Premier League standings virtually the entire season. For most of the year, they led the next closest team, crosstown archrival Manchester City, by more than 10 points. The Red Devils finally sealed the deal over the weekend, sending longtime manager Sir Alex Ferguson into retirement in style.

Tiger Woods has struggled to win a major tournament ever since his marriage fell apart in 2009. Despite occasional wins, he has failed to win a major tournament since the 2008 U.S. Open, when he took Rocco Mediate to extra holes. Since then, Woods has slowly reconstructed his career, gathering professional wins and eventually reclaiming the world's No. 1 professional golfer ranking. Woods prevailed again over the weekend, winning The Players Championship and taking home a cool $1.7 million along the way.

The Warriors beat the Spurs to bring their Western Conference Semifinals series even at two games apiece, the National Hockey League playoffs are in full swing and Spain held its national tennis open. From baseball to Formula 1 racing, these are the top photos from the world of sports for May 10, 11 and 12, 2013.
