Woods narrowly misses out on first title in five years

Woods narrowly misses out on first title in five years

His swift resurgence leads up to Sunday at the Valspar Championship, where he's just a shot back of leader Corey Conners entering the final round.

A long victory drought on the PGA Tour ended Sunday, just not the one most people - Casey included - were expecting. He had to wait until the last minute for confirmation, though.

Woods stood on the 17th tee needing a birdie-birdie finish to tie clubhouse leader Paul Casey at 10 under, and after finding the green on the par-3 he faced a big-breaking 44-foot putt for birdie.

"He made it look easy for such a long time and it's not".

Woods, who finished one stroke behind Casey, lamented a "couple of putts here and there" that could have led to his 80th PGA Tour victory. "I couldn't be happier".

Woods opened with a two-putt birdie to briefly tie for the lead.

Two shots behind going to the back nine, with Casey running out of birdie chances, Woods failed to birdie both par 5s. Through four Tour events in 2017-18, Woods has three top-25 efforts, and will look to carry his momentum over to this weeks Arnold Palmer Invitational. And I felt that way before all of his off-course transgressions became public.

"I felt like I played solid today", Reed said.

"It happened to be unfortunate it got around the corner of the green where I was on the green, had to go over the fringe, through about 7 feet of fringe and back on the green, and I thought I could putt it", Reed said. That's not a great recipe for closing out a tournament, especially when somebody as good as Casey drops a 65. Those little mistakes will get you and they got me this week.

"It didn't feel very good", Woods said after the hole, according to the Golf Channel. "A couple putts here and there would have been a different story".

Also the victor in Atlanta after crashing and finishing 31st in the season-opening Daytona 500, Harvick is the first driver to win three straight Cup races since Joey Logano in 2015. Lisburn's Grant got on the scoreboard with a 5 and 3 singles win over Chinese Taipei's Yu-Chiang Hou but Asia-Pacific. A non-major in the middle of March turned into a golf thrill ride. "We've had a good time".

Although Tiger didn't prevail, he registered his best finish since 2013 and his first result inside the top 10 since 2015.

Tiger Woods insists he is pleased with his performance at the Valspar Championship as he continues to build up to the 2018 Masters.

AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Kevin Harvick raced to his third straight NASCAR Cup Series victory Sunday, holding off Kyle Busch for his record-extending ninth win at ISM Raceway.

Portrush's Graeme McDowell, who only made the cut on the mark, finished tie 40th on level par after weekend rounds of 68 and 71.

We are experiencing technical difficulties for users in some locations. "It's a long year".

When Woods answered the call of nature at another portable toilet Saturday, The Washington Post's Dave Sheinin relays the information that one fan yelled, "Get it all out, Tiger!" I knew there was no way I could putt it. It kept rolling, and rolling, and rolling right back to where it started. "I don't want it to be streaky, I'd rather it be consistent". That's all it is. "He put it on us and got it done".

This was his fifth tournament in seven tries with a negative strokes gained putting number.

NBC will release Sunday's numbers today and final TV numbers for the entire tournament will come out Tuesday.
