Tiger Woods ended his run at the PGA Championship on a high note after shooting 67 in Round 4.

The superstar was on par in each of his previous two rounds to fall out of controversy in the first major tournament of the year, but the final round at TPC Harding Park saw a lot of improvement. With five birdies and two bogeys in Sunday’s round, Woods finished one stroke below par for the tournament.

It was still not enough to compete with the candidates in San Francisco, sitting in a band for 41st when he entered the clubhouse.

Despite starting the day 11 strokes from the lead, Woods started the round as well as he could have hoped.

After three straight presses he bird both no. 4 as no. 5 to get him back just in time for the week. One presented a rare sand rescue at this event, while the other had an excellent approach to the rough:

Two holes later, Woods continued his momentum by moving with a birdie for the day to three under:

Even after a bogey on the eighth hole, the top nine were extremely encouraging with a score of 33.

Perhaps most importantly, he still looked healthy in his fourth straight day of action:

The eighth nine was not always smooth, but he managed to shake and prevent bogeys. His miss only led to pars while adding birds on 14th and 17th holes, thanks to great work with his irons.

Of course, not all of his photos worked on Sunday as the whole week:

It finally caught up with him with a bogey at 18, but he still found a way to finish three strokes below par in the final round.

This was just the second official event for Woods since the PGA Tour kicked off with both having similar results. In the Memorial Tournament and PGA Championship, he was good enough to make the cut, but he rarely got into controversy, making fans want more.

He was at least better off the tee Sunday when he hit nine of 14 fairways, while his 1,157 stroke around the green got his best of the week, per PGATour.com.

The 44-year-old now has to put it all together with two more majors who are still on the schedule in this re-established 2020 season.
