Rickie Fowler wins Hero World Challenge behind stellar Sunday

Tiger Woods makes a HUGE jump in the Official World Golf Ranking after Hero World Challenge performance Rickie Fowler wins Hero World Challenge behind stellar Sunday

Traveling on business, Nicklaus has kept abreast of Woods' comeback at this week's Hero World Challenge, though he hasn't caught any of the proceedings from Albany Club in the Bahamas.

If that was the highlight of Woods' return to tournament golf after a 10-month layoff, the takeaway was that he appears healthy and ready to compete with the game's elite players in the upcoming year.

The 14-time major victor, playing his first tournament since withdrawing from February's Dubai Desert Classic with back spasms, went out in 31, hitting three birdies and an eagle at the seventh.

He reached the green in three but missed the putt to make bogey.

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

GDP recovers, grows at 6.3% in July-September quarter
We should wait for the growth rates over the next 3-4 quarters before we can reach a definite conclusion. In a series of tweets, he said: "This is a pause in the declining trend of the last five quarters".


Fleetwood's countryman Justin Rose (68) was alone in fourth on eight-under, with Woods a stroke back alongside Matt Kuchar and Rickie Fowler, who both shot 70s, Japan's Hideki Matsuyama (66) and Italy's Francesco Molinari (68).

Woods has been mum about his upcoming schedule, though if he continues to play his usual events, his next tournament could be at Torrey Pines in late January for the Farmers Insurance Open.

After rolling in his putt at 14, Woods doffed his cap and gave fans a little bow. But, hey, it's just one of those days. tomorrow is another fight. "Today it was a lot, unfortunately".

"Anything I did right ended up in a bad spot, then everything I did wrong, it was really bad", Woods told NBC television.

"It feels good to be out here fighting again", he said. "I've missed doing this".
