Tiger Woods just turned back the clock with this putt

Tiger Woods

Woods' birdie putt on the 18th hole from almost 40 feet stopped short - a theme throughout the day - and left him a stroke shy of Englishman Paul Casey, who fired a final-round 65 on the Copperhead course at the Innisbrook Resort to claim his second PGA Tour title in addition to 13 European Tour wins.

You have to go all the way back to August 4, 2013, to find the last time Tiger Woods won on the PGA Tour.

Woods was tied for the lead early in the final round, and later sank a 44-foot putt on the 17th hole to pull back within one.

Woods' 34-foot putt on 18 to force a playoff with Paul Casey came up just short.

Casey, securing his first win on the PGA Tour since his Shell Houston Open success back in 2009, and his first win anywhere since his KLM Open win in Holland in 2014, shot a final round 65 for 10-under-par 274 that enabled him to leapfrog up the leader board to the top spot with Woods and Patrick Reed a shot adrift. He got up-and-down from a bunker short of the green at No. 11 for birdie, stuffed his approach to a foot on No. 12 and then holed a 20-foot birdie from just off the green at No. 13.

Per Harig, Woods is in his best position to win a tournament since he tied for 10th at the 2015 Wyndham Championship. He teamed with Carlos Franco to win last year's Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf.

But victory was not to be for the 14 major victor and holder of 79 trophies. He closed with a 72 and finished three shots behind. 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. I hit it with what I thought was good dying pace and it took forever for that green to take it.

Johnston shot 66. They finished at 11-under 277. Conners, a 26-year-old Canadian who got into the field as an alternate, moved to 9 under with a 3-under 68 and will be going for the wire-to-wire victory. The 21-year-old from India shot a 75 to tie for seventh, seven shots behind. Unfortunately, it wasn't sufficient to earn him a spot in the upcoming WGC Dell Matchplay in two weeks time, with the cut-off point (the top 64 available off the world rankings) coming after the Valspar. Trainer spent three seasons on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica and won the Mazatlan Open in Mexico in 2016.

Trish Johnson, a 19-time victor on the Ladies European Tour, believes McIlroy will continue to struggle while his putting is off.

John Chin was two shots back, and Chase Wright and Sebastian Munoz tied for third, another shot behind.
