What Tiger Woods said after Sunday's T-2 finish at Valspar Championship

Lowry in the mix at Valspar Championship on the PGA Tour Tiger Woods Charges Toward Lead Heading Into Sunday At PGA Event In Tampa

Woods' birdie putt on the 18th hole from almost 40 feet stopped short - a theme throughout the day - and left him a stroke shy of Englishman Paul Casey, who fired a final-round 65 on the Copperhead course at the Innisbrook Resort to claim his second PGA Tour title in addition to 13 European Tour wins.

On the par-3 17th, Woods drained a 44 foot putt for birdie to get within one stroke of clubhouse leader Paul Casey.

Woods is tied for second with Brand Snedeker and Justin Rose, and Ryder Cup star Patrick Reed is also within shouting distance.

Woods hasn't made double bogey through 54 holes at the Valspar but had three at the Honda, derailing momentum and his chances of winning the tournament.

The 14-time major champion set up a grandstand finish by nailing a 45-foot putt on the penultimate hole, with Woods failing to convert an effort from a similar distance at the last to force a play-off.

"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".

It was Casey's first PGA Tour victory in nine years. We'll work on that a little bit and hopefully that will be good by next Thursday.

She's searching for the father she desperately misses, hoping to patch up the emptiness felt without his presence. At 109 minutes, "A Wrinkle in Time " feels rushed, with key story elements dropped or glossed over.


Casey has finished in the top six in the Masters in each of the last three years and added: "I'm excited, and not only for my game but the fact that Tiger's playing great".

"To get this one, to get my second one on the PGA tour is emotional".

"(Woods) made it look easy for such a long time, and it's not", he said.

"I was walking down the sixth and looked over to the fourth green", Rose said. Alas, a two-putt on the final hole would have gotten him into a playoff, and he didn't even come close. "So nice and just been into it and into this event and I played myself right there in contention so it will be a fun Sunday". "I've been here before a few times", the 42-year-old said when asked if he had felt any nerves. I'm sure he was disappointed he didn't get the victory.

"He's risen above it all, and the end result is a guy who is out here really appreciative of his ability to go out and play the type of golf that he's capable of".

Whatever the outcome, Woods has left no doubt in his past two events that he is destined for further glory, as long as his body holds up and excitement for next month's Masters is going into overdrive. Next week: Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.

"Today was a good day", Woods said. "I don't want it to be streaky, I'd rather it be consistent".
