Smiling Woods ties for ninth as Fowler wins with 61

  • Tiger Woods made a poor start with bogeys at four of the first seven holes

Woods shot a 76 in the final round a year ago, which left a bitter taste even after a showing in which he led the field in birdies.

Woods, in his first tournament in almost 10 months following spinal fusion surgery, said he had some bad breaks on Saturday and that his game was better than his scorecard suggested. Woods is 10 back of leader Charley Hoffman but still in the mix for a top-10 or top-five finish at the tournament he hosts. I showed some good signs.

"You've got to keep fighting, and that's one of things I've always done in my entire career is just keep fighting and try to post the best number I possibly could", Woods added. I hit some really good shots out there. "I don't know what my schedule's going to be, but my expectations are we'll be playing next year". England's Tommy Fleetwood (67) and Jordan Spieth (69) tied for third at 12-under 276.

"To have a chance to win this great tournament, hopefully I can knock it off", said Hoffman, who in October donated his earnings of close to $100,000 at the Shriners Hospital Open on the PGA Tour to victims of the tragic shooting in his city of Las Vegas.

"The shot that really threw me for a loop was the shot at three", Woods said.

But he wound up with a bogey.

He reeled off three more birdies after a double bogey at 10, but dropped another shot at 17 following an errant tee shot and ended a promising return in disappointing fashion with a three-putt bogey at the last.

"It's ridiculous", he said.

Woods had earlier reached the turn in 31, including an eagle two at the seventh, as he shot a final round 68 to bounce back from Saturday's three-over-par 75. "At that time I've already played four par-fives and nothing happened".
