  • Tiger Woods during third round of Quicken Loans National

In his final start before the third major of the season, Tiger Woods closed the Quicken Loans National with a four-under 66 on Sunday in Potomac, Md.

The world No 17 produced a world-class display and played a five-hole stretch in six under on his way to a bogey-free 62 at TPC Potomac, ending the week on a tournament record-low of 21 under and becoming the first Italian victor on the PGA Tour since 1947.

On Sunday during the final round of the Quicken Loans National, Woods finally started to get some magic going with that ever-important stick, and fans went absolutely bonkers.

But Texas-born Mexican Ancer went even better, matching the course record with an eight-birdie 62. Woods tied for fourth, his best result since a runner-up finish at the Valspar Championship three months ago, though he was 10 shots behind.

"I missed some putts this week, but that's okay as long as I'm starting the ball on my lines again and I have the speed", he said.

"That's what I came here for", Molinari said.

"It was frustrating because I played better than what my score indicates", Woods said.

Molinari first put the putter in play at the Players Championship and later in May won the BMW PGA Championship with it. Molinari's putter is only 32.25 inches in length with a loft of 2.5 degrees and a like angle of 70. It is Molinari's first career PGA Tour win.

Denmark and Croatia set World Cup record for fastest goals
This has given added impetus to this tie with both sides being impressive going into tonight's battle in Nizhny Novgorod . Croatia go long to Mandzukic, who pulls back across the face of goal , however there's no one else waiting for the ball.

Also on Sunday, Armour, Ancer, South Korean Sung Kang and American Bronson Burgoon qualified for the July 19-22 British Open at Carnoustie, as the top four finishers not previously exempt. Now he's one round away from his first PGA Tour victory, which is a lot longer than it looks.

He continued to home in on the pins with his approach shots as he set off on the back nine, but missed birdie putts from inside 10 feet at the 10th and 11th holes took the wind out of his sails.

Molinari and Ancer began the final round tied at 13 under and two shots clear of the field. "Didn't bother me. I would rather play in this than cold weather".

The victory, his second on the PGA Tour schedule, gives him a two-year exemption and moved him to No. 42 in the FedEx Cup.

Woods bogeyed his opening hole and converted a 10-footer to save par at the third, before surging up the leaderboard by following a birdie at the fourth with a close-range gain at the next.

Woods responded, however, with a dramatic 25-foot birdie putt at the par-3 ninth, giving a double fist pump of satisfaction as the crowd erupted in cheers.

"It's even more special to win in this style and to get his congratulations on the last green was a very proud moment for me".

As the gallery at No. 5 scrambled to surround the green, Woods delivered a wedge shot to seven feet and made the putt to pull within three shots of the lead at that time.
