Fowler-Rickie-USNews-Getty-FTR

Butch Harmon said it is not out of the question that Tiger Woods will win another major after an encouraging comeback at the Hero World Challenge.

No more birdies were forthcoming, however, and Fowler settled for a course-record 61 and an 18-under total of 270.

The 14-time major champion will turn 42 on December 30 and his likely schedule is yet to be confirmed, however, there were enough positives from the four rounds to suggest Woods can be a regular contender again.

"Then I thought he would play but never win again".

Fowler began the final round seven strokes back from overnight leader Charley Hoffman, but surged up the leaderboard with a lightning start to his Sunday in the Bahamas. "I really drove the ball a lot better than I was thinking, especially distance-wise".

Sami added the AIHRC had received more complaints regarding denial of alimony to women this year compared to the previous years. Nearly half of the women who were killed in 2012 were killed by either partners or family members, compared to 6% of men.

Fowler made birdies in a variety of ways Sunday, holing out from the bunker and draining long putts. ". I hit just a boatload of good putts". The Stanford product posted rounds of 69-68-75-68 with two eagles, 17 birdies, 11 bogeys and one double bogey-6. He told reporters he experienced "no pain" over the weekend and believes he still has a "bright future" on the course.

Fowler was in a class of his own in a scintillating exhibition, birdying the first seven holes and surging into a two-shot lead by going out in 28.

Woods underwent a fourth back surgery last April and made headlines when he was arrested near his Jupiter, Fla. home for driving under the influence. 1-7 - in his bogey-free round, leading him to victory in the 18-player field.

Hoffman shot an even-par 72 in Round 4 to finish second at 14 under.

Tommy Fleetwood and Jordan Spieth finished in a tie for third place on 12 under. Woods beat current World No. 1 Dustin Johnson by eight shots.
