Tiger tracker: Follow Tiger Woods’ Sunday round at the Hero World Challenge

Tiger Woods enters the final round of the Hero World Challenge in Nassau, Bahamas, last in the field of 18, 11 shots behind leader Tony Finau, Jon Rahm and Henrik Stenson (-13).

Victory is out of the question, but Woods at least can close out 2018 on a positive note. 

And 2018 has been a success for Woods: Seven top-10s, including a runner-up finish in the PGA Championship, and a victory — the 80th of his career — in the Tour Championship.

“Well, the expectations are much different this year, this upcoming year,” Woods said before the Hero World Challenge. “Now I know I can do it. Now it's just about managing and making sure I'm fresh for events because I know I can win tournaments again.

Woods (-2) tees off with Hideki Matsuyama (-3) at 10:42 a.m. ET. Follow his round with shot-by-shot analysis. 

Hole 3, par 5, 572 yards

The tee shot is long and true, splitting the fairway. The par-5 is playing downwind, so Woods has an iron in his hand … 233 yards to the flag. His second comes up short of the green, but he should be in OK shape to get up and down for birdie.

Hole 2, par 3, 175 yards

The tee shot is just short and right of the green, but the chip is a beauty. Tiger taps in for par. 1 over (1 under overall)

Hole 1, par 4, 423 yards

Tee shot No. 1, with the driver, leaks a bit left into the rough. But it should not be any trouble. Or maybe it will. The rough did not look bad, but Woods doesn't get the cut he wants with his second shot, and he misses the green to the left. The chip … mediocre at best … leaving 10 feet for par. Not a great start. Bogey at 1. 1 over (1 under overall)
