Rickie Fowler conquers Bahamas to win Hero World Challenge

Bogeys slow Woods' comeback

American Jordan Spieth (72) and England's Justin Rose (71) were tied for second five shots back.

"Anything that I did right ended up in a bad spot, and then anything I did wrong it was really bad", he said.

Woods, in his first tournament in almost 10 months following spinal fusion surgery, said that he had some bad breaks and that his game was better than his scorecard suggested. Nobody was sure how far he'd hit his iron shots, but I think he's done pretty well with that too.

"Tiger is wonderful for the game, and I am like many fans who are delighted to see him playing again", Nicklaus said.

"Woods turned that into his first birdie of the day, and a hole later he had his first fist pump after holing a 15-footer for par that was a result of a chunked chip". The 14-time major champion looked pain-free all week while finishing t-9 at 8 under.

Tiger Woods looks to end the 2017 Hero World Challenge on a positive note after a bumpy 75 in Round 3.

The major story this week was Tiger Woods' latest return to golf.

He admitted that was "frustrating because I have a hard time with this into-the-grain, ball sitting down".

"Now I am able to sit back and enjoy it a little bit more.it's been really nice". "I haven't quite figured it out yet". He shot an eagle on hole 1. "Day to day stuff was very hard for me to do", Woods said.

"I've missed the fight and getting out there and competing, fighting against the golf course and the guys".

Fowler was looking at a seven-stroke deficit when he began his round on Sunday but seven straight birdies and another at the ninth put him in front at the turn, which he made in eight-under 28. The two have played several rounds near their homes in South Florida, but this was the first time they had ever played in a tournament.
