  • Tiger Woods lines up a putt on second hole during the final round of the Hero World Challenge golf tournament at Albany Golf Club in Nassau Bahamas Sunday Dec. 3 2017

On Monday, he made an even bigger jump in the Official World Golf Ranking.

No more birdies were forthcoming, however, and Fowler settled for a course-record 61 and an 18-under total of 270.

Third-round leader Hoffman (72) once again failed to convert his 54-hole lead into a win and finished four behind Fowler. The 14-time major champ is now ranked No. 668 after entering the week at No. 1,199. "I really drove the ball a lot better than I was thinking, especially distance-wise".


Global sporting icon Woods led for a short time during the second round and offered a demonstration of why he became a golfing great with a huge drive onto the green before holing a tricky putt for an eagle at the 350-yard par-four eighth in his final round Sunday. "He may now have chances to win on the PGA Tour again, but winning a major is a different animal".

Click on the video above to see Fowler's seven straight birdies! . England's Tommy Fleetwood (276), world No. 2 Jordan Spieth (276) and world No. 5 Hideki Matsuyama of Japan (277), Patrick Reed (277) and Olympic champion and world No. 6 Justin Rose of England (277) rounded out the top five. It was also his first tournament since undergoing a fourth back surgery in April.

Woods, who had his back fused just seven months ago, bounced back from an average third round with his lowest round of the tournament on Sunday. "I showed some good signs", he said, adding that they pointed toward "a bright future". How am I going to get used to the adrenaline in my system, because it's the first time in a while. Francesco Molinari (70) was ninth and Tiger Woods, (68) completed the Top-10 alongside Matt Kuchar (71). Woods beat current World No. 1 Dustin Johnson by eight shots.
