Golfing World News - March 3

There’s only one place to start… the Honda Classic and Tiger Woods’ final round withdrawal.
The world number one was five over par through 13 holes when he pulled out of the tournament complaining of back spasms. It’s the first time in Woods’ career that he has failed to card a top-10 finish in his first three starts of a season.

Away from Tiger and it was Russell Henley who picked up the victory as he outlasted Rory McIlroy, Ryan Palmer and Russell Knox in a playoff.. The victory is Henley’s second on the Tour, his first coming at last year’s Sony Open.

Despite Henley’s heroics the performance of the weekend has to go to Paula Creamer.
Taking on Azahara Munoz on the second playoff hole at the HSBC Women’s Champions, the American, 75 feet from the pin, had two shots to take it to a third extra hole.
Remarkably she somehow sank the putt to take her first victory since the 2010 U.S. Women's Open. Shortly afterwards Creamer Instagrammed her delight - posing with her latest piece of silverware.

Whilst Creamer ended her title drought, Ross Fisher also ended a run of almost four years without a win. The Englishman finished three strokes clear of Michael Hoey and Danie Van Tonder to secure the Tshwane Open.

That’s all for today join us tomorrow when Cara Robinson will be in Florida ahead of the WGC-Cadillac Championship as ever find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and use the #GWTV.
