Rickie Fowler conquers Bahamas to win Hero World Challenge

Woods has won 14 majors in an incredible career, and his former coach Harmon is not writing off the 41-year-old's chances of adding to that tally.

Fowler began the final round seven strokes back from overnight leader Charley Hoffman, but surged up the leaderboard with a lightning start to his Sunday in the Bahamas.

But his chipping was mediocre, and he did finish only mid-pack, so let's not expect miracles in 2018 from a man almost 10 years removed from his most recent major championship victory, and four-plus years from any victory.

"I've got to be honest, I really like the way Tiger is swinging the club", Harmon wrote.

Woods eagled the par-4, 350-yard seventh hole and mixed six birdies with two bogeys and a double bogey in his closing round. Francesco Molinari (70) was ninth and Tiger Woods, (68) completed the Top-10 alongside Matt Kuchar (71).

"I'm excited", Woods said on Sunday. "I showed some good signs", he said, adding that they pointed toward "a bright future".

As far as his next tournament is concerned, Woods has not yet made a public commitment.

The ever secretive Woods has revealed few specifics of his back operations or his rehabilitation, but his most recent spinal fusion surgery seems to have been successful, judging by his movement and swing patterns. Toxicology reports revealed a plethora of prescription drugs in his system at the time of the arrest, including pain killers. Fowler birdied the first seven holes, and eight in total on the front nine. 1-7 - in his bogey-free round, leading him to victory in the 18-player field. Jordan Spieth and Tommy Fleetwood, who is getting married on the course Tuesday, finished tied for third at 12 under. Woods beat current World No. 1 Dustin Johnson by eight shots.
