|_______________||1 || Scrambling Tiger makes strides with solid week |
Tiger Woods, trying to recapture the form that won 14 major titles, says he made "big strides" in reviving his game at the PGA Quicken Loans National despite a failed Sunday charge. Tournament host Woods birdied five of the first 10 holes, including a 42-foot birdie putt at the par-3 ninth, but then made bogeys on three of the next four holes. The 39-year-old American answered with an eight-foot birdie putt at 17 but settled for a three-under par 68 final round to finish on eight-under 276 -- his lowest 72-hole score in relation to par at a PGA event since the 2013 BMW Championship.

Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat beat Sweden's Robert Karlsson by one hole in a dramatic final to win the Paul Lawrie Match Play title in Aberdeen, Scotland on Sunday. Aphibarnrat birdied the final hole to fend off an inspired fightback from Karlsson who won three holes in a row to send the pair down the 18th fairway locked together. It was a third European tour title for Aphibarnrat, known as the Asian John Daly after the long-hitting American twice major champion, and his first outside his home continent.
