He also had a double bogey.

Fowler began the day with seven consecutive birdies and shot 11-under 61 to win by four strokes.

Woods, in his first tournament in almost 10 months following spinal fusion surgery, said he had some bad breaks on Saturday and that his game was better than his scorecard suggested.

But Woods kept battling away and finally started getting some joy from his putting, to finish with two birdies on the 14th and 17th holes to claw back two shots. That's keep fighting and try and post the best number I possibly could. "Day to day stuff was very hard for me to do", Woods said. Whatever I did right ended up in a bad spot, and whatever I did wrong was really wrong.

Said Woods, "I am very happy, very happy that I've hit the ball as well as I have, the feel of my putter, overall shaping of shots and just trying to put together a round".

Woods is at four under, his back has held up well and he feels he can "fight his way back" from here.

"I don't know what golf courses I will be playing, what's the best way to go about it.We'll figure it out". Overnight leader Charley Hoffman led the field by five strokes at 14-under 202.

Tournament host Woods made three birdies on the front nine and there were huge cheers when he holed a tricky putt for an eagle two at the 350-yard par-four seventh, set up by a mammoth tee shot which ended up beyond the pin. England's Tommy Fleetwood (67) and Jordan Spieth (69) tied for third at 12-under 276.

Woods, who had his back fused just seven months ago, bounced back from an average third round with his lowest round of the tournament on Sunday.

"At that time, I had already played four par 5s and nothing happened".
