Tiger Woods caps off amazing comeback with a win

first_imgATLANTA (AP) — A comeback not even Tiger Woods saw coming a year ago.A chaotic celebration that golf hasn’t seen even in the best of times.Woods delivered the perfect ending to his amazing return from four back surgeries on Sunday with a performance that felt like old times. He left the competition feeling hopeless as he built a five-shot lead early and hung on to win the Tour Championship.Woods raised both arms over his head after he tapped in for par and a 1-over 71 for a two-shot victory over Billy Horschel, the 80th victory of his PGA Tour career and his first in more than five years.“It was a grind out there,” Woods said. “I loved every bit of it.”It felt like a coronation coming down the 18th green, his second shot to the par 5 safely in a bunker in front of the green. The crowd came through the ropes and walked behind him, similar to when he won the Western Open in 1997 for the first dose of Tigermania.This was better. It was bigger.One year ago, Woods was still waiting for his lower back to fuse and wasn’t sure he could ever play again. He told stories of being unable to get off the couch to watch his kids play soccer, much less to chip and putt.He was becoming a legend only in video highlights.Woods brought it all to life over four days at East Lake, and the players who have taken turns at No. 1 during his absence caught the full brunt of it. Rory McIlroy faded early. Justin Rose faded late.All that was left was the 42-year-old Woods in that red shirt blazing brighter than ever and a smile he couldn’t shake walking up to collect another trophy. Tiger Woods motions for his putt for birdie to slow down as it passes the ninth hole during the final round of the Tour Championship golf tournament Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, in Atlanta.

Steelers look to clean up mistakes after sloppy loss

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (30) fumbles against the Denver Broncos during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Nov. 25, 2018, in Denver. The Broncos recovered the ball. (AP Photo/Jack Dempsey) That may be an even bigger issue for the Steelers. Pittsburgh has 12 takeaways and has only created multiple turnovers in the same game twice, the main reason why its minus-7 turnover differential is 26th in the league. The Steelers had a chance to make a play immediately after Grimble’s fumble when Cam Heyward tipped Case Keenum’s pass high into the air. It fell harmlessly to the ground surrounded by a handful of Heyward’s teammates.“We have to be more opportunistic,” Heyward said. “We have to keep preaching it, and maybe we have to spend some time with JUGS machine, all of us, just to make sure we are all aware of the significance of when (the quarterback) throws the ball. We got to be the aggressors instead of just letting it hit the ground.”Getting pressure is not a problem. Pittsburgh sacked Keenum twice and he completed just 15 of 28 passes. Yet the Steelers couldn’t rattle him enough to make a major mistake. Nor could they get their hands on Denver running back Phillip Lindsay, who ran for 110 yards and a touchdown.“There were some opportunities for us to get the ball and we just didn’t seize the moment,” Heyward said.It added up to a momentum-sapping loss a week after stealing a victory in Jacksonville. Pittsburgh shut down the Jaguars over the final 20 minutes to roar back from a 16-point deficit. Though the Steelers limited Denver to 308 total yards, they also allowed the Broncos to go 79 yards for the go-ahead score after Conner’s fourth fumble of the season late in the third quarter.The drive relied heavily on Lindsay, an undrafted rookie free agent who became the first back in over a year to top 100 yards rushing against Pittsburgh. Lindsay ran effectively enough that Pittsburgh couldn’t take aim at Keenum.“We feel like if we slow their run game down, that will give us a chance to ball search and force the quarterback to throw the ball and give us an opportunity to make plays,” Hilton said. “So we just have to slow it down and try to make plays on the ball.”That might not be easy this week against the Chargers (8-3). Los Angeles quarterback Philip Rivers tied an NFL record by completing 25 straight passes in a blowout win over Arizona on Sunday.“He’s one of the top guys in the league and he’s got weapons on the outside making plays for them,” Hilton said. “Their running game is one of the better ones in the league, so it’s going to be a tough opponent. So we will have to be prepared.”NOTES: OLB T.J. Watt said he was “fine” a day after exiting briefly with a wrist injury. … RT Matt Feiler called the decision to have him serve as a backup because he is dealing with a pectoral injury “precautionary.” Rookie Chukwuma Okorafor made his first start in Feiler’s place and held his own for the most part against Denver star linebacker Von Miller.___More AP NFL: and PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger called the interception that ended Pittsburgh’s six-game winning streak fluky.On the surface, the Steelers quarterback is right.The only reason Denver defensive lineman Shelby Harris found himself in position to make a leaping grab of Roethlisberger’s pass intended for Antonio Brown was because Harris was mashed off the line of scrimmage by Pittsburgh center Maurkice Pouncey. Yet that didn’t stop Harris from improvising and getting his hands on the ball.“I just never would have thought that guy would make that play,” Roethlisberger said.That kind of play seems to pop up with regularity when things go awry for the AFC North leaders.The Steelers (7-3-1) have turned the ball over 19 times through 11 games, including four in Sunday’s baffling 24-17 loss to the Broncos. Roethlisberger threw a pair of picks, James Conner fumbled deep in Denver territory and tight end Xavier Grimble saw a sure touchdown vanish when he tried to run over Broncos safety Will Parks at the goal line. The ball squirted loose just before crossing the plane and six points vanished.“We didn’t do a good job of taking care of the ball and we also didn’t do a good job of getting the football,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said.last_img read more
