Paul Casey: Victorious at Valspar Championship

The normal Tiger’ Woods is back and tournaments are on notice

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 and his massive following went dormant after an opening birdie to briefly share the lead.

That was his best finish since he tied for second at that Barclays tournament, right about the time his back started to give out.

He had been a factor on the final day in his previous two tournaments and a gallery in Florida that stood 10-deep around just about every green could sense a victory was possible. "It was a tough week on a demanding course and I felt I held up really well", said Woods. I remember it and on top of that my game is sharp.

Casey made his move up the leaderboard by posting three birdies in a four-hole stretch from the fourth, before back-to-back gains from the 11th moved him alongside Rose.

Woods' odds to win the Masters, as adjusted by Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, dropped twice on Friday on the strength of his performance, first from 16-1 to 12-1 and then to 10-1 - behind only world number one Dustin Johnson and PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas, both priced at 8-1.

Paul Casey claimed his second PGA victory with a final round of 65, as Patrick Reed could only bogey on the 18th when his putt failed to get up the green, and rolled straight back to where it started.

Naturally Woods is getting all the attention as the oft-injured star is chasing his first tournament win in five years.

"Just a couple of things with my set-up and I was just trying to get my posture organised a little bit more. little things (that) just make for better passes through the golf ball". "[On Saturday at Valspar], he putted a little bit off compared to what I saw at Honda, but he drove it way better and I don't see it going backwards from here". I said a couple of times if I don't win this thing, I actually want Tiger to win it. Snedeker is streaky with his putter, but looks to be in form this week. Those who criticized his swing or thought all the injuries would never allow him to vie for PGA titles are having to think again, and accept that Woods just may be able to get back to the top again. Just when it looked like the baton had been passed-a new generation of young studs ready to shove the old guys aside and carry the sport for years to come-the idols they grew up watching are puffing out their chests and pushing back. He ended up with a par on the hole, giving Casey the victory. And so it was left to Woods.

He led compatriot Justin Rose, who picked up one stroke in eight holes to improve to nine-under.

Conners dropped two shots in the first three holes, before settling down to trail by three shots after nine holes.

But in that time, much has changed in Casey's life as he explained. I played some really good golf.
