In what might have been his last competitive round before the Masters tees off on April 5, Tiger Woods finished Round 4 of the Arnold Palmer Invitation at -10 and tied for fifth place as he entered the clubhouse.

The line. The reaction.— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) March 19, 2018
No wonder the putt on No. 18 looked so familiar. pic.twitter.com/ghMh6rFxhK
Tiger showed he was Tiger of old in parts, until his unraveling in the late stages of the day. He pulled a tee shot out of bounds on 16, bogeying the hole, and would go on to bogey 17, as well.
He finished hole 18 for par, draining a long putt, and keeping golf fans salivating at the thought of a rejuvinated Woods.

Hole No. 9: Oh boy. That's trouble. Tiger's drive flies waaaaay off to the right. Woods drops a stroke with his first bogey of the round. Lost a little bit of momentum there.

Hole No. 8: Tiger's approach shot places his ball about six feet from the cup. Beauty. An easy birdie pushes Woods to 10-under. This is a strong start.
Hole No. 7: Another par on this 199-yard hole. Woods seems to be finding a rhythm. Ahead of Tiger: Henrik Stenson (13-under), Justin Rose (11-under), Bryson DeChambeau (11-under) and Rory McIlroy (10-under).
Hole No. 6: We've got a fist pump. Woods reaches the green in two shots, setting himself for an eagle putt, but he just snags the edge of the cup as the ball rolls past. He moves to 9-under with the birdie, four shots back of the lead.

Hole No. 5: Wow. Tiger crushes his drive like he just hit a 500-foot home run into the upper deck. Woods goes for a birdie attempt after a poor chip shot. His putt drills the flagstick and pops back out, leading to a short tap for par. Woods is lucky the stick got in the way, or that putt could have flown off the green.
Hole No. 4: Woods reaches the green in two on this par-5, leading to an easy birdie putt. Woods can't break his crazy eagle streak, but he does move to 8-under.

Hole No. 2: Tiger's tee shot goes wide of the hole, and his initial putt comes up well short. A solid par putt from Woods keeps him even through his first two holes.
Hole No. 1: Woods likes his first drive of the day, but he is unable to finish a long birdie putt from the edge of the green. He settles for par.
Here's a look at how Tiger closed out Round 3 with a birdie.
