Rickie Fowler conquers Bahamas to win Hero World Challenge

Tiger Woods can still win at least two more majors in the next five years according to Aussie golf veteran Craig Parry

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

The 14-time major champion lit up the front nine at the Albany Golf Course, hitting the turn in 31 for the second time this week before having to settle for a four-under 68 to finish in a share of ninth on eight under.

His eight-under-par total was good enough to beat world No.1 Dustin Johnson, FedEx Cup victor and world No. 3 Justin Thomas and US Open champion Brooks Koepka and it lifted Woods from 1,199th to 668th in the world golf rankings.

Fowler finished four shots in front of fellow American Charley Hoffman, the overnight leader by five strokes who carded a final-round 72.

"I think I competed well", Woods told ESPN after logging his third sub-par round of the weekend.




A back-nine double-bogey and two bogeys to finish took some wind out of Woods's sails, but the 41-year-old superstar, playing for the first time since February after yet another back surgery in April, found plenty to be encouraged about.

Woods, who stated post-round that he was happiest about his driving this week, played his final 45 holes in level-par.

Fowler was in a class of his own in a scintillating exhibition, birdying the first seven holes and surging into a two-shot lead by going out in 28.

"That took a little bit of time", added Woods, who finished the week with rounds of 69, 68, 75 and 68. "This is the way I've been playing at home and when I came out here and played, I was playing very similar to this. I showed some good signs", he said, adding that they pointed toward "a bright future". "Not quite hitting it as far, but I had the adrenaline going and overall I'm very pleased". Woods beat current World No. 1 Dustin Johnson by eight shots.
