Quick, who finished in 11th place in the Honda Classic?

You probably don't know (apologies, Dylan Frittelli), but you have a much better chance of knowing about the guy who finished 12th. That would be Tiger Woods, a 14-time major champion and winner of 79 PGA Tour events who had last placed inside the top 15 of a regular PGA Tour event in August 2015.

Woods' even par finish at PGA National was either, depending on your perspective, a disappointment because he was three shots off the lead at one point on Sunday; a modest stepping stone in his return to being a healthy member of the tour; or an outright miracle given that it looked fairly recently like he might never play golf again.
