Rickie Fowler fires seven birdies in a row at Hero World Challenge

Rickie Fowler fires seven birdies in a row at Hero World Challenge

More than two years had passed since Tiger Woods completed his last tournament on a golf course before Sunday.

The 14-time major champion will turn 42 on December 30 and his likely schedule is yet to be confirmed, however, there were enough positives from the four rounds to suggest Woods can be a regular contender again.

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.

Third-round leader Hoffman (72) once again failed to convert his 54-hole lead into a win and finished four behind Fowler.

Woods, in his first tournament in almost 10 months following spinal fusion surgery, said he had some bad breaks on Saturday and that his game was better than his scorecard suggested.

"I really didn't feel I was that far off".

Television's Berlanti Productions, which is producing Sabrina for Netflix, has most of its scripted series airing over on The CW . According to Deadline , " Sabrina " will have a two-season order of 20 episodes, and its exact title is still to be determined.

Woods eagled the par-4, 350-yard seventh hole and mixed six birdies with two bogeys and a double bogey in his closing round.

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

Fowler sprinkled 11 birdies - including seven straight from Nos. At one point during Round 2 on Friday, he was atop the leaderboard on 8-under thru nine holes with an outward 31, but came home in 37, same scores he signed for in the finale.

Woods shot rounds of 69-68-75-68 in his first start in 10 months. How am I going to get used to the adrenaline in my system, because it's the first time in a while.

"I'm excited", said Woods, who was playing his first tournament for 301 days since pulling out the Dubai Desert Classic in February. Woods beat current World No. 1 Dustin Johnson by eight shots.
