Tiger comes up just short, finishes 1 shot behind Casey at Valspar
PALM HARBOR, FL - MARCH 11: Tiger Woods reacts on the second green during the final round of the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort Copperhead Course on March 11, 2018 in Palm Harbor, Florida.

Tiger Woods' pursuit of his 80th PGA Tour win was a riveting ride, but he ultimately fell just short, as the 42-year-old fired a 1-under 70 on Sunday afternoon to finish in second place at the Valspar Championship.

Paul Casey stormed up the leaderboard with an impressive 6-under 65 to take the title at 10-under. The win was the second of Casey's career, and his first since 2009.

Woods made birdie on the first hole of the day, but couldn't find the mark with his putter afterward. He bogeyed No. 4, and then strung together 12 consecutive pars before dropping a monstrous 44-foot birdie on No. 17 to move within one shot of Casey's lead, sending the golf world into a nostalgic frenzy.

With another birdie chance on 18, Woods came up a few feet short of sending the tournament to a playoff.

He'll be back in the mix next weekend at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, a tournament he's won eight times.
