Tiger Woods returns to world's top 150 after Valspar challenge

What Tiger Woods said Saturday at the Valspar Championship			Jasen Vinlove  USA TODAY Sports

Lawrence Donegan joined Monday's Off the Ball to reflect on the performance of Tiger Woods at the Valspar Championship at the weekend.

Woods ended the tournament tied for second place but that did not stop people flocking back to watch the 14-time majors' victor - live and on television. "I think they were the biggest since the Masters previous year - something insane like that", Lawrence told Joe. It was wall-to-wall Tiger in all the sports coverage and then you go to the local news channels and the sports guy there, certainly in our area, and it's all Tiger.

Woods' fusion surgery ended a brief comeback bid a year ago.

"Unfortunately I just didn't quite feel as sharp as I needed to with my irons, played a little conservative because of it", Woods told reporters at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor. "A couple of putts here and there and it could have been a different story", Woods added. He could not replicate the magic at the par-four 18th, where he missed a hard 40-foot birdie putt that would have forced a playoff with Casey.

Woods finished the day tied for second with fellow American Patrick Reed.

He was 10-under through 17, but dropped out of playoff contention with a shocking bogey at the last, where his first putt failed to make it to the upper tier of the green where the pin was located.
