Valspar Championship: Three takeaways from Tiger Woods' runner-up finish

Valspar Championship: Three takeaways from Tiger Woods' runner-up finish

Paul Casey, who won the Valspar Championship by one shot over Tiger, before Sunday's final round: "I don't know how he does it".

Woods did just that, captivating the audience with a 44-foot putt on the 17th hole on the tournament's last day. In his words: "The green goes from dead across, as it comes across in the first part of my putt, then it switches to down". He says improved putting had solved the final piece of the puzzle. Because they'd been left largely dormant for the previous three hours, since an opening-hole birdie. Woods is playing some of his best golf on the PGA Tour in some time.

Casey rallied from five shots behind.

Casey fired a six-under 65 on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort, safely negotiating the Snake Pit to set the clubhouse target at 10 under.

Casey's other PGA victory came in the 2009 Shell Houston Open.

"I'm excited", Woods said. Unfortunately, Woods left himself around a 40-foot uphill putt on the 18th for birdie, and left it just short of the hole on the right.

Paul Casey teed off 70 minutes before Woods and trailed leader Corey Conners by five shots.

"I've gotten a little better than what I was a couple weeks ago, and I keep getting a little bit better and a little bit sharper; today wasn't quite as sharp as I would like to have had it". "A couple putts here and there, and it could've been a different story".

Woods looks over a putt on the 18th hole at the Valspar Championship that would have forced a playoff against Casey had it fallen. He pulled a wedge into the left rough on No. 11 and three-putted from 80 feet on No. 14. His only blemish Sunday was a bogey on the third hole.

Casey, who finished at 10-under 274, will rise to No. 12 in the world ranking. The tournament begins Thursday.

"I felt very comfortable".

Woods lifted his golf club into the air and touched the bill of his cap in response, before raising his hat fully off his head and waving as the ovation grew louder. Herman was credentialed as a "player's spouse" during that tournament, per

Woods's solo debut at the Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead course (he played a mixed gender event here with Kelli Kuehne in 1996) has created a Woods-stalk festival, with fans flocking to the course by the tens of thousands and holding aloft their smartphones like lighters at a concert to capture images, however blurry, of the 14-time major champion and 79-time PGA Tour victor.

Woods' last PGA Tour victory came at the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, but Bay Hill seems like as likely a spot as any for Woods to win again considering his eight victories there.
