  • Tiger Woods satisfied after solid return in Bahamas

And, to make matters even better, for the first time in nearly exactly a year, Tiger Woods. world ranking went up! Fowler entered the final round seven shots behind Charley Hoffman, but shot 61 to win by four.

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. Two takeaways from this 18-man exhibition in The Bahamas: the 41-year-old, who turns 42 on December 30th, completed four rounds for the first time since here last year - where he finished 15th on 4-under 284 (73-65-70-76) - and, he did so pain-free. Woods was able to post scores of 69-68-75-68, and while the course wasn't as hard as typical championship venues on the PGA Tour, three under par rounds is certainly a positive step for Woods.

"If you compared facially between last year and this year, the pain on his face, he looked five years younger for a start but I think we do have to be careful with the comparisons from years gone by because he soon will be 42 years of age", Nobilo said. "I showed some good signs", he said, adding that they pointed toward "a bright future".
