Woods ties for ninth in Bahamas as Fowler wins with closing 61

The Golden Bear has been an ardent supporter of the former World No. 1 player throughout a career in which Woods accumulated 14 major titles and 79 wins on the PGA Tour, second all-time behind Sam Snead.

Tiger Woods was back in his traditional Sunday red, but no one could keep up with the bright orange-clad Rickie Fowler in the final round of the Hero World Challenge.

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.

"I've had some tough times through the years with my back and then finally to come out on the good side and (be) able to get back out there and play".

"If he continues along this way, the one thing I learned from my 10 years with Tiger is never say never with Tiger Woods".

Global sporting icon Woods led for a short time during the second round and offered a demonstration of why he became a golfing great with a huge drive onto the green before holing a tricky putt for an eagle at the 350-yard par-four eighth in his final round Sunday. "Now I am able to sit back and enjoy it a little bit more". "At that time I've already played four par-fives and nothing happened". But the 79 times PGA Tour victor struck back with birdies at 11, 14 and 15 before bogeys at 17 and 18.

He finished four shots clear of overnight leader Charley Hoffman, while England's Tommy Fleetwood was a further two strokes behind and tie with Jordan Spieth.

The troubles for Woods started early yesterday morning as he took bogeys at the first and third holes before further miscues at six and seven saw him post a four-over 40 for the front nine.
