       Tiger tracker Follow Woods final round at Hero

Only in the closing five holes, where Woods twice had birdies and narrowly missed a third at the last, did the 41-year-old show he could again be a factor at the elite 18-man event that features eight of the world's top 10. "I have always said that Tiger has a great work ethic, and he has put in the time and hard work to first get healthy and then to ready himself for competitive golf".

"The shot that really threw me for a loop was the shot at three", Woods said. "I just ended up in bad spots after good shots". "Not quite hitting it as far, but I had the adrenaline going and overall, I'm very pleased".

He and his team will now sit down to determine how best to build his 2018 schedule for major championships.

The golf superstar has made only a handful of appearances in the past two years after back problems forced him to miss the entire 2015-2016 season and despite the frustrations of Saturday's round Woods said he was enjoying his return. "At that time I've already played four par-fives and nothing happened".

Fowler began the day with seven consecutive birdies and shot 11-under 61 to win by four strokes.

North Korea: US 'begging' for war with 'largest ever' joint aerial drill
The Rodong Sinmun commentary said the aerial wargames show "the enemies' moves to start a nuclear war have reached a risky stage". North Korea has repeatedly rejected accusations of human rights abuses and blames sanctions for a dire humanitarian situation.

He definitely had the Albany course figured over the first nine holes on Sunday.

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.

Woods, playing for the first time since February, was in trouble from the opening hole, hitting his tee shot at the par-four first into the sand bordering the fairway. But the 79 times PGA Tour victor struck back with birdies at 11, 14 and 15 before bogeys at 17 and 18.

England's Tommy Fleetwood (67) and Jordan Spieth (69) tied for third at 12-under 276. "We took care of that and kept it rolling".
