Tiger Woods came within 2 feet of forcing a playoff for his best finish in nearly 5 years



  • Tiger Woods brought back a little bit of the magic on Sunday at the Valspar Championship but came two feet short of forcing a playoff.
  • Woods was tied for the lead early in the final round, and later sank a 44-foot putt on the 17th hole to pull back within one.
  • Woods’ 34-foot putt on 18 to force a playoff with Paul Casey came up just short.
  • Woods’ second-place finish was his best finish on the PGA Tour in nearly five years.

Tiger Woods brought back some of the Tiger magic this weekend at the Valspar Championship and for a little while it looked like he was going to do something he hasn’t done since 2013 — win a PGA Tour event.

Woods started the final round one shot back and briefly tied for the lead when he birdied the first hole. But that would be his only birdie until the 17th hole when Tiger’s flair for the dramatic had fans downright giddy.
