Woods shot a 5-under 31 on the front nine Sunday, but he bogeyed his last two holes to finish with a 4-under 68. The 41-year-old looked at home throughout the tournament, and was powerfully crushing his drives and low-irons throughout the four days in the Bahamas, with his ball speeds approaching 180 miles-per-hour.

He finished equal ninth out of 18 competitors on Sunday, 10 shots behind victor Rickie Fowler, his best result in four years and certainly most respectable for a man who had not played a competitive round for 10 months. The California native also tied for the ninth most birdies rolled in out of the field, and hit 65% of his fairways which tied for the seventh best.

The major story this week was Tiger Woods' latest return to golf. Fowler entered the final round seven shots behind Charley Hoffman, but shot 61 to win by four. It was Woods' first competitive tournament since February and a fourth back surgery - a spinal fusion - in April.

Woods also revealed that her daughter has to wear orthopedic leg braces and worries that she won't be able to walk without them. Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller said search crews are looking for Mariah Woods, who was reported missing sometime last night.

The world number nine added another three birdies after the turn to take command, winning at a canter as Hoffman could only manage a level-par 72.

Jordan Spieth, tied for second to start the round, fired a final-round 69 to share third with England's Tommy Fleetwood, who signed for a 67.

Woods, the former longtime world No. 1 and 14-time major champion, had not officially logged four competitive rounds since the Wyndham Championship on August 20-23, 2015. How am I going to get used to the adrenaline in my system, because it's the first time in a while.

"If he continues along this way, the one thing I learned from my 10 years with Tiger is never say never with Tiger Woods". Woods beat current World No. 1 Dustin Johnson by eight shots.
