Casey wins at Innisbrook as Woods come up short by a putt

Tiger Woods' play in the final round of the Valspar Championship Sunday in Palm Harbor produced the highest-rated non-major PGA Tour broadcast in almost five years, NBC announced Monday. As many are aware, The Valspar Championship at the Copperhead Course is not known for being one of the top tournaments on the PGA schedule.

He closed with a 70 - the first time since The Barclays in 2013 that he posted all four rounds under par on the PGA Tour - and tied for second.

Woods shot a one-under on Sunday and ended the weekend at nine-under par. "As a whole, I felt very good about what I did this week". As I was telling you guys yesterday, I had really some nice building blocks at Honda (where he tied for 12th two weeks ago) and I've had a few tweaks for this week and it paid off. It was the closest Woods has come to winning in almost five years.

Woods didn't find another birdie until the 17th, where he drained a putt of nearly 45 feet to close within one stroke of Casey's clubhouse lead and send his massive gallery into a frenzy. He had a 40-foot birdie attempt on the 18th hole to force a playoff with Paul Casey and came up short.

Reed was tied with Casey coming up the last, only to sensationally throw away the chance of victory - hitting a weak birdie putt from distance that ultimately saw the ball roll back down a ridge to its starting point.

With the Masters looming, Woods will nevertheless be able to take a host of positives from the week, having registered his first top-10 finish in an official event since 2015 and a first placing in the top three since 2013, when he won five tournaments. He three-putted for bogey and a 68.

When the dust settled, Casey, long in the clubhouse with a 65 for 10-under 274, could finally celebrate his second victory on the PGA Tour.

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

Sergio Garcia finished fourth on eight under after matching Casey's 65, while Justin Rose was one further back with Rory Sabbatini after struggling for any form en route to a 72.
