Woods ends strong at Hero tournament

Woods ends strong at Hero tournament

On Monday, he made an even bigger jump in the Official World Golf Ranking.

No more birdies were forthcoming, however, and Fowler settled for a course-record 61 and an 18-under total of 270. Francesco Molinari (70) was ninth and Tiger Woods, (68) completed the Top-10 alongside Matt Kuchar (71).

Woods, the former longtime world No. 1 and 14-time major champion, had not officially logged four competitive rounds since the Wyndham Championship on August 20-23, 2015. Perhaps most importantly, Woods didn't experience any back pain throughout the four rounds, and since there isn't a Tour event until January 4, Woods will have plenty of time to gear back up for his second tournament of 2017-18.

A back-nine double-bogey and two bogeys to finish took some wind out of Woods's sails, but the 41-year-old superstar, playing for the first time since February after yet another back surgery in April, found plenty to be encouraged about.

Fowler began the final round seven strokes back from overnight leader Charley Hoffman, but surged up the leaderboard with a lightning start to his Sunday in the Bahamas.

Ole Miss fans are coming off a high point from last week after winning the Egg Bowl over Mississippi State. That means that any school that wants to hire him must meet with the NCAA infractions committee.

"If he continues along this way, the one thing I learned from my 10 years with Tiger is never say never with Tiger Woods". ". I hit just a boatload of good putts".

Woods posted three under-par rounds for the week, including a final-round 4-under 68 that featured his eagle on No. 7 and a half-dozen birdies.

Fowler sprinkled 11 birdies - including seven straight from Nos.

Tommy Fleetwood and Jordan Spieth finished in a tie for third place on 12 under. "Nobody was sure how far he'd hit his iron shots, but I think he's done pretty well with that too".

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson finished in a tie for 14th at 288 after a final-round 72.
