Tiger Woods draws big crowds to Valspar Championship

12 March 2018

But he's not the golfer in contention entering the 2018 Valspar Championship's final round on Sunday. An 80th PGA Tour did not seem possible, certainly not now.

The former world No 1 had to settle for a share of second place at the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort, posting a one-under 70 on Sunday to finish one short of victor Paul Casey. But Woods' game looked close to or as sharp for much of the Honda Classic two weeks ago. It wasn't until a stumble at 12 that Burns started to fall.

But it was precisely Woods' age, 42, and the nearly five years since his last PGA Tour win in the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone that made Saturday's spectacle in the third round of the Valspar Championship so enticing and potentially monumental for the sport. Playing out of the ninth-to-last twosome, the Englishman landed nine (of 13) fairways and mustered nine greens in regulation, gaining 2.439 strokes around-the-green and 4.339 tee-to-green. He used a wedge on the fourth shot, knowing he had to hole it for par to force a playoff. 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.

Reed bogeyed the 18th after making an unwise play on the finishing green, opting to use a putter rather than a wedge and then seeing his initial putt fail to reach the cup and roll back to his feet. "That's why I thought Tiger was going to win today, because he's probably watched Phil win, and figured I want to win. I know it's packed up there, but at least I got a shot". Unfortunately, Woods left himself around a 40-foot uphill putt on the 18th for birdie, and left it just short of the hole on the right.
