Rickie Fowler fired a stunning course record 61 to win the Hero World Challenge at Albany in the Bahamas by four shots.

Starting the final round seven strokes behind 54-hole leader Charley Hoffman, Fowler made seven birdies in a row from Hole 1 to storm up the leaderboard. He made four more birdies coming in for an 11-under-par round and a 72-hole total of 18-under-par 270.

Tournament host Tiger Woods closed with a 68 to finish T9 on eight-under-par in his return to competition after back surgery. Prior to this week, his last round in a tournament was an opening 77 before withdrawing from the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in February.
