Tiger still in the woods

Tiger Woods return turns the dial for TV ratings

Hoffman countered two bogeys and a double-bogey with six birdies in a two-under 70 and a 14-under total of 202.

"I've had some tough times through the years with my back and then finally to come out on the good side and (be) able to get back out there and play". Woods, who stated post-round that he was happiest about his driving this week, played his final 45 holes in level-par.

Showing speed and power with his full swings and seemingly without any discomfort despite four back surgeries to his name the two-time FedExCup champion proved a return to regular PGA TOUR duties is far from beyond him. "Day-to-day stuff was very hard for me to do", Woods said. For whatever reason, I find myself really enjoying this comeback. Bogeys on the par-five sixth, par-four seventh and par-four 10th further deepened the gloom.

Fowler was looking at a seven-stroke deficit when he began his round on Sunday but seven straight birdies and another at the ninth put him in front at the turn, which he made in eight-under 28.

Shkreli's Wu-Tang Album, Picasso Eyed for Forfeiture
In his eBay listing, Shkreli said he has not "carefully listened to the album", and the work remains the subject of intrigue. Even after being convicted , Shkreli struggled to repress his quirky instincts and to stay off social media.

The 41-year-old, who last played at the Dubai Desert Classic in February, carded a four-under final round of 68 but was powerless to prevent fellow countryman Rickie Fowler from claiming a four-shot win after a stunning 61. He added three birdies on the back nine but closed poorly, with bogeys on the final two holes.

"I've missed the fight and getting out there and competing, fighting against the golf course and the guys".

Jordan Spieth (72) and England's Justin Rose (71) were tied for second at nine-under 207, one stroke ahead of Italy's Francesco Molinari (71). "We took care of that and kept it rolling".
