Woods returns to world's top 150 after Valspar challenge

Woods returns to world's top 150 after Valspar challenge

"I felt very comfortable" being in contention down the stretch, Woods said following his first top-five finish on the PGA Tour since August 2013.

An iron off the tee on the par-four 18th left Woods with a longer iron in to the green, but he couldn't hole his 30+ footer for birdie, leaving him one adrift.

It manifested itself in the flood of media requests for the PGA Tour's remaining pre-Masters schedule - he will play the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando beginning Thursday - and the breathless chatter of Golf Twitter, which barely existed the last time Woods was relevant. "I've not done that in a long time and that's the difference". It was the best-rated Round 3 of a PGA Tour event on any broadcast network since 2006, and the best rating for the Valspar tournament in its history-an eye-popping 181% gain over Round 3 of the event previous year.

Sergio Garcia finished fourth on eight under after matching Casey's 65, while Justin Rose was one further back with Rory Sabbatini after struggling for any form en route to a 72.

The Valspar Championship saw 27.2 million minutes streamed, becoming the most-streamed PGA Tour event ever for the NBC network, and the fourth-most streamed golf event overall for NBC Sports behind the 2016 and 2017 Open, along with the 2016 Ryder Cup.

"Unfortunately, I just didn't quite feel as sharp as I needed to with my irons and played a little conservative because of it". "I had a good shot at winning this golf tournament".

"A couple of putts here and there and it could've been a different story". Woods has made significant progress of late and is showing flashes of vintage Tiger.

"Probably more satisfying, the fact that it was on a week where Tiger played some good golf and got to see some wonderful stuff and hear the roars, and it just was a great week-the buzz, everything about it", Casey said. Singh also bogeyed 17 to fall even with Tolles, whose chip from short of the green on the par-5 18th rolled 6 feet past. He is an eight-time victor at Bay Hill, and the euphoria over his return is sure to reach even higher decibels.

"It was a very good week".

"I want him to play brilliant golf", Casey, the 2006 European Tour player of the year, said of Woods earlier this week.

Corey Conners, the Canadian rookie who started the final round with a one-shot lead, fell back quickly after opening with a bogey on the easiest hole at Innisbrook. He shot 77 and tied for 16th at 3 under.

That left Casey the victor, finally. Woods hit the PGA's fastest clubhead speed of the season for any pro golfer at 129.2 miles per hour.
