Tiger Woods finishes tied for fourth at Quicken Loans National


Francesco Molinari

Tiger Woods closed with a 66, his lowest final round in more than five years, but he was never close.

He is now seven-under for the tournament after he shot an even-par Thursday.

But Woods pointed out a glaring one: his play on two of the easier holes on the course over the weekend.

India's new golfing sensation Shubhankar Sharma rolled in four birdies in a span of six holes in the middle of the fourth and final round at the HNA Open de France, here, today. His round was peppered elsewhere with dropped shots, however, and when the 42-year-old made his fourth bogey of the day at the 18th it might effectively have ended his title hopes. "I didn't really make any mistakes, made some putts, kept the ball in front of me". "I thought that 10 under would have been a good score for me to end up at for the day, and I could have easily gotten that today on the back nine".

The 14-time major champion was collecting birdies in droves early in his third round at the Quicken Loans National, and by the time Woods reached the seventh hole on a steamy Saturday, he was within a stroke of the lead at the tournament he's hosted since 2007.

A spectacular chip-in and four putts beyond 15 feet were among his seven birdies, the 14-time major victor sharing 11th on five-under 135 after 36 holes at TPC Potomac, only four strokes behind United States co-leaders Brian Gay, Beau Hossler and Ryan Armour. Molinaro is now among qualifiers for the Ryder Cup team, but his FedEx Cup standing is at No. 123.

Although he'd never won in the U.S., Molinari has five career wins on the European Tour.

Temple's option is worth $8 million in 2018-19, which marks the final season of a three-year deal he signed in July of 2016. Teams that can't afford a marquee free agent can try to entice the Spurs with a trade package for the 2014 NBA Finals MVP.

Not only that, but it will be important to put on sunscreen if you plan on spending time outdoors and be sure to reapply it often. With all of the heat and humidity, it's not out of the question for some of the storms to be on the strong side.

And while he has always been compared to Michael Jordan , Johnson is the one whose game more closely resembles his own. LeBron isn't the only person heading to a new team and in fact, there are a lot of star players available this summer.

The win was Molinari's fifth European Tour success while the closest he's come to victory in a PGA Tour counting event was finishing joint runner-up to Justin Thomas in last August's PGA Championship at Quail Hollow. Molinari birdied his last two holes for a 65 and joined him at 13-under 197. He missed several opportunities for birdies on the back nine, but then putted from 28 feet on the 17th before another birdie at the last. He also was No. 123 in the FedEx Cup, so Molinari chose to play the Quicken Loans National and the John Deere Classic in two weeks to improve his standing.

Molinari made just two bogeys for the week and only one over his final 68 holes.

Rickie Fowler, the only player inside the top 10 at the TPC Potomac, had a 69 and is eight shots off the lead.

Lahiri had a penalty on the 470-yard par-4 11th.

Woods followed with a 16-foot birdie putt at the par-4 15th, but missed a six-footer to bogey the par-3 17th.

Justin Thomas, the No. 2 player in the world, shot 71 and tied for eighth at Le Golf National, the venue for the Ryder Cup this fall.
