Valspar Championship: England's Paul Casey beats Tiger Woods by one shot


Casey has won 13 times on the European Tour but his sole previous success on the PGA Tour came in the Houston Open in 2009 and he let slip a two-shot lead after 54 holes in the Tour Championship last September.

He was at 9-under 204 and will play with Justin Rose (66), who joined Woods and Snedeker at one shot behind.

"But it will be cool". 'It's hard because when I play in my weeks off or practice, it feels pretty good.

For so many years, such a roar caused far more consternation than celebration among the rest of the field.

For a brief moment on the 17th green at the Valspar Championship in Florida time was wound back and Tiger Woods was dropping bombs, with the fire in his eyes, title on his mind and gallery roaring him on.

'Rory needs to find some form on the greens, ' she said. It will be good for me to go back and play there, I'm really looking forward to it'. "I missed a short one [for par] at four and should have birdied 14; those little mistakes over the course of a week will get you and it got me this week". "I thought it was just teed up beautifully for him".

And to think five months ago, Woods wasn't sure if he would ever be able to compete at a high level.

And here he is, one shot out of the lead, and knowing that his work is not done. It's lucky I'm playing next week'. There were also the indignities, including the public unraveling of Woods's marriage after his indiscretions were made public and a D.U.I. arrest last May for the misuse of prescription medicine.

"I loved his putt on 17".

It seems like every chip he hits these days has a chance to go in, and he finally got a short, delicate one to drop from behind the green at nine. Each week has been a little better.

Patrick Reed was tied for the lead and appeared headed for a playoff at worst until his approach to the 18th came back down the slope, and his 45-foot birdie putt was so weak that it rolled all the way back to his feet. He closed with a 62 last month to win the Malaysian Open, making him the only two-time victor on the European Tour this season. This will be the fifth time Snedeker has played with Woods this year.

'It's early in the season, it's a long year, ' he said.
