"I didn't want to get run over", Woods said with a laugh. Woods shot a final-round 64, however, Koepka held on to win his third major in two years.
He almost won the FedEx Cup, too, until Justin Rose survived a late meltdown with a birdie on the final hole. Heavy rain left the course playing easy, and Woods was one of the players to take advantage of the conditions.
He finished at 11-under 269 and won $1.62 million, along with a $3 million bonus for finishing second in the FedEx Cup. It is a measure of how dominant Woods was before injuries corroded his game that despite all the time he missed, he moved into a tie with Dustin Johnson for the most PGA Tour victories among active players - 19 - since the start of 2008.
Rose had said it was a bit more unknown, and "there's a lot on it for him" as well as everyone else.
If we're being honest, who thought they would ever see Woods win another golf tournament when he was seen on that Florida dash-cam video on Memorial Day weekend in 2017, so stoned on pharmaceutical painkillers that he was incoherent and unable to walk a straight line for the officers who discovered him slumped over his Mercedes steering wheel on the side of the road with the auto running?
Tiger Woods is back.
The British learned to catch space debris network
Various companies have plans to send thousands of new satellites into low-Earth orbit, already the most crowded area. Next up for the RemoveDEBRIS system is figuring out how to maneuver the space junk once it's captured.
"Certainly, this is going to be up there as one of my better accomplishments I've had [if I win]", Woods told NBC Sports before the tournament was over. That might be enough to return him to No. 1 in the world.
Woods' displays so far in 2018 suggested he was finally over the injury problems that had plagued him in recent years. He made a comeback with a birdie at No. 13 and had consecutive bogeys during the 15th and 16th holes.
With the victory, Woods takes home a cool $1.6 million in prize money. When the putt dropped and cheers died, there was a wild sprint some 200 yards up the hill as fans tried to get into position for the next shot.
A year ago, there was no guarantee anyone would see much of Woods, much less Woods winning.
The victory capped off a season that started with questions over whether the 42-year-old would even be able to play a full schedule after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April 2017.
