Paul Casey claims one-shot win over Tiger Woods at Valspar Championship

Tiger is once again the star of the show on the PGA Tour

The Englishman finished at 10 under, while Woods and fellow American Patrick Reed ended at 9 under.

Woods, playing just his fourth PGA Tour event since his latest back surgery, briefly held a share of the lead after an opening-hole birdie but bogeyed the fourth and struggled to make further inroads.

Tiger Woods did not quite manage to win the Valspar Championship, but the 14-time major champion briefly sent Twitter insane as he threatened to pull off a miraculous finish at Palm Harbor. I remember it and on top of that my game's sharp, so it was a good day.

The 40-year old Cheltenham-born Casey last won on the PGA Tour in capturing the 2009 Houston Open and in the intervening period has contested 155 Tour events before being handed the Valspar "Paint Brush" trophy. Woods found the green but the ball landed well past the hole, leaving him with a long right-to-left downhill putt.

"I'm a fan of golf and to pip him is very special".

"Then standing over my putt on 17 I thought to myself to just the right speed and I hit it would good dying pace even though it took forever to drop". Casey knows that the next generation of tour stars has already arrived, which makes his accomplishment all the more meaningful.

Brown: Rangers talked all week, Celtic did talking on pitch
A wonder strike from Socceroo Tom Rogic has helped Celtic extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership . I thought we were the better football team.

A three-time Ryder Cup player for Europe, his only previous United States tour title came at the 2009 Houston Open.

The 40-year-old began the final round five shots off the lead but carded four birdies and a bogey in a front nine of 33, before rolling in a hat-trick of birdies from the 11th.

"Very satisfying. Probably more satisfying the fact that it was on a week where Tiger played some good golf and got to see some fantastic stuff and hear the roars and it just was a great week, the buzz, everything about it. Couple putts here and there would have been a different story". Could that come next week at Bay Hill during the Arnold Palmer Invitational? "I mean, it's very bad to say, [but] we kind of got used to not seeing him out here and it was still good; but it's that much better when he does come and play". I hadn't played there in a couple years because of my back and I wanted to play there a couple years ago. I've worked so hard. In the past three seasons, the former world No3 had racked up four runner-up places and 11 other top-five finishes. He played with Brandt Snedeker in the second-to-last group on both Saturday and Sunday, starting the final round one shot behind rookie Corey Conners (who shot 77 to fall to T16).

As Tiger Woods headed away from the Gulf of Mexico early Sunday evening, pointed east, that is what he left with: At age 42, he can clearly still play. "I didn't get it done". It will be good for me to go back and play there, I'm really looking forward to it'.

Spain's Sergio Garcia put in an encouraging performance as he warms up for the defence of his Masters title, firing a final round 65 to finish alone in fourth on eight-under 276.
