Tiger Woods finally found his form at the Masters. It came a few days too late.

Woods closed with a flurry, shooting a 3-under 69 in the final round and finishing at 1-over 289 for the tournament.

Woods had two birdies, an eagle and a bogey on the back nine. The eagle was his first at the week. His only late blemish was missing a 9-foot par putt at No. 18. Still, he played much more like the four-time Masters champion everyone remembers for the first time all week.

The former world No. 1 is returning to competitive golf after a fourth back surgery. He played the Masters for the first time since 2015.
