Scottie Scheffler wins Hero World Challenge; Tiger finishes even par

World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler shot a 4-under 68 in Sunday’s final round of the Hero World Challenge to cruise to a three-shot win in the exhibition tournament at Albany Golf Course in the Bahamas.

The annual, unofficial tournament that benefits Tiger Woods’ charitable foundation saw Woods return to competitive golf for the first time since April.

Woods shot an even-par 72 on Sunday to finish even par for the event, placing 18th out of 20 golfers.

Woods, 47, recovered from a double bogey at the par-3 second with birdies on three of the next four holes. He also managed consecutive birdies at Nos. 14-15, but his card was held back by bogeys at Nos. 8, 11 and 16.

Woods completed his first tournament since withdrawing from the Masters in April. He said he’s using this week as a “beta test” to see what he needs to do to be able to compete over 72 holes across four days.

As for Scheffler, who made two eagles during Saturday’s third round, he posted four birdies and no bogeys on Sunday to finish the event at 20-under 268.

Sepp Straka of Austria had a final-round 64 to place second at 17 under.
