Patrick Reed celebrates his win at Doral in the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship, his third PGA Tour win in less than a year.

Patrick Reed was downright confident after Sunday's victory at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. After three victories in less than a year, the 23-year-old has every right to feel on top of the world.

Reed fired an even-par 72 to clear Bubba Watson and Jamie Donaldson by a stroke and earn his second PGA Tour victory of the 2014 season, and became the youngest WGC winner in the process.

Here are 5 Things to take away from Sunday at Trump National Doral:

Patrick Reed fired an even-par 72 to pick up a one-shot victory over Jamie Donaldson and Bubba Watson on Sunday at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Reed finished his round with a bogey, but made a 2-footer to secure his third victory on the PGA Tour.

"Just staying patient; I was hitting ball so good this week, it felt like, and my putting just was outstanding," Reed said – adding that the blade took the pressure off him tee to green. "Around a golf course like this you have to be confident, and I feel like I've done that really well."

The third round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship had something for everyone, but most people were impressed by Tiger Woods' performance.

During a 6-under 66, Woods made eight birdies and recorded the lowest round of the championship so far moving from a tie for 25th at 5-over and six shots out of the lead to tied for fourth – and just three shots behind leader Patrick Reed at 4 under.

Reed, co-leader with Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar and Hunter Mahan to start the day, shot a 3-under 69 to take hold of his second 54-hole lead this year. The Augusta State grad ...

Tiger Woods used eight birdies to card a 6-under 66 and work his way back into contention Saturday at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

The World No. 1 is 1 under for the tournament, three shots back of leader Patrick Reed, who shot 69 Saturday at Trump National Doral. Reed is two shots head of Jason Dufner (68) and Hunter Mahan (71).

A day after high winds made scoring conditions difficult, low numbers were easier to achieve in Round 3. Jimmy Walker, the FedEx Cup leader, shot 67 to move back to 1 over while Phil Mickelson will enter Sunday at 2 ...

DORAL, Fla. – If it has been said once, it has been said hundreds of times in recent years by Tiger Woods observers: He doesn’t putt as well as he used to, particularly on greens he has never seen before. That might well be, but Saturday at the WGC-Cadillac Championship hardly supported the notion.

The 38-year-old Woods putted like it was 1999, or 2000, or pick a calendar year in which he seemed to consistently roll the ball into the cup from hither and yon. The backbone of the Saturday Special 66 that vaulted him into contention was this: He ...

DORAL, Fla. – In a wild and windy Day 2 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, Tiger Woods’ performance had remarkable moments both good and bad.

He made a 92-foot putt and hit the hole with a 7-iron shot from 231 yards out. But he also sent three balls into water during that second-round 73, at least two on shots that looked excellent in the air.

Perhaps more significant, Woods nodded yes when asked if his back, which caused his withdrawal Sunday at the Honda Classic, affected his swing. He did not noticeably grimace while playing, but he said he was sore after ...

Trump National Doral showed plenty of bite Friday at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, as windy conditions coupled with a tough course layout left just four players under par at the conclusion of the second round.

Dustin Johnson, Hunter Mahan, Matt Kuchar and Patrick Reed are all tied for the lead at 1 under.

As for Tiger Woods, the World No. 1 struggled early in wrapping up a first-round 4-over 76, but then rebounded with an afternoon 74. He's six shots back at 5 over.

Just how tough was it Friday? Consider this: no player shot a second round in the ...

DORAL, Fla. – It was not as they envisioned when Nos. 1, 2, and 3 were paired together for the first round of this World Golf Championship spectacular.

These guys are good? There’s a large body of work to support that claim, but on this day, a disclaimer was necessary, even for the trio of Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson. Indeed, they are good, but fierce wind and a firm, fast golf course is better.

How stunning was the play of these three stars as they completed the final eight holes to their first round at the re-designed ...

Tiger Woods was 2 over through 10 holes before play was suspended Thursday at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

DORAL, Fla. –– Tiger Woods walked off at the Honda Classic with a sore back. This time, at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, he left mid-round with what appeared to be a sore mood.

Woods, the world’s top-ranked golfer, played 10 holes Thursday at Trump National Doral before play was halted for the day due to darkness. His summary of the day went something like this: Four bunkers off the tee, two lip-outs, two three-putts, two bogeys, 2 over par, two weather delays and apparently too much rust.

That performance left him five strokes behind the clubhouse lead of Harris English, who ...

Tiger Woods managed to complete 10 holes before darkness set in Thursday at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. He did not, however, manage to make a birdie.

Woods bogeyed twice, including at the par-5 10th at Trump National Doral, and was 2 over when the horn sounded. He's currently five shots back of co-leaders Jason Dufner, Hunter Mahan, Harris English, Patrick Reed and Francesco Molinari.

Inclement weather halted play earlier in the afternoon for 2 hours and 23 minutes. The first round will be completed Friday morning at 8:45 a.m. with second-round times staying the same.

DORAL, Fla. – It was as if Geraldo Rivera himself had bounded into Trump National Doral with Al Capone’s safe in his arms; the hype was that overwhelming.

Would Tiger Woods tee it up? How’s Tiger’s back? Have you heard anything about Woods?

Even The Donald himself made his way through the lobby of his latest toyland and asked of a PGA Tour player, “Is Tiger playing?” The player smiled and suggested that Woods would tell The Donald before he told his colleagues and what came out of the conversation was this – Woods had a ribbon-cutting commitment at ...

Tiger Woods will try to find his top form at the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship in the wake of a back injury.
Tiger Woods will try to find his top form at the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship in the wake of a back injury.

Jeff Rude’s “Hate To Be Rude” column appears on Golfweek.com on Wednesday.

Tiger Woods has won four PGA Tour events at Doral. But if he somehow manages a fifth victory this week, it would be his most remarkable success there and perhaps one of the most unlikely wins of his career.

The reasons are many. He’s coming off a Sunday back injury. He hasn’t practiced and is rusty. He doesn’t know and has never played the new Trump National Doral course, redone by Gil Hanse. And Woods hasn’t performed well this year, having tied ...

Tiger Woods will play the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship at Trump National Doral starting on Thursday.

Tiger Woods plans to play the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Trump National Doral beginning Thursday, according to ESPN’s Bob Harig.

"He wouldn't be coming down here if he didn't intend to compete at the highest level,'' Steinberg said. "He intends to play and wants to play well.''

Woods withdrew from the final round of the Honda Classic on Sunday after 13 holes in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., when he experienced back spasms. When he withdrew, he was 5 over for his round.

When Rory McIlroy lost his lead at Honda on Sunday, he was one of eight players that have folded with the 54-hole lead in 14 starts on the PGA Tour this season.
When Rory McIlroy lost his lead at Honda on Sunday, he was one of eight players that have folded with the 54-hole lead in 14 starts on the PGA Tour this season.

Rory McIlroy at the Honda Classic was the latest 54-hole leader who failed to hold on and win. Only 6 of 14 third-round leaders have won this year, which on top of last year’s 17 of 38 means that the rate of success is less than 50 percent (23 of 52) since 2012.

All of which makes that part of the Tiger Woods aura even more remarkable. In his career, Woods has had the 54-hole lead 65 times in both PGA Tour and European PGA Tour events, and 58 times he has gone on to win.

From the 2005 ...

A notorious slow player, Luke Guthrie found himself playing at a much brisker pace when paired with Tiger Woods last weekend at the Honda Classic.
A notorious slow player, Luke Guthrie found himself playing at a much brisker pace when paired with Tiger Woods last weekend at the Honda Classic.

If the PGA Tour is searching for answers to the pace-of-play problem, perhaps it should give guys a little push and assign them a spot in the pairings opposite Tiger Woods. Heck, it seems to have worked for Luke Guthrie, who smiles when he speaks the truth: “I’ve had a rap of being a little slow.”

A year ago at the Honda Classic, when Guthrie was in the last group in Sunday’s final round with Michael Thompson, his pace of play was given much scrutiny. A third-round pairing in this year’s Honda Classic, his first with Woods ...

Tiger Woods, left, has been supplanted by Rory McIlroy as the oddsmakers' favorite in Doral at this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship on PGA Tour (shown here at this year's Dubai Desert Classic).

Tiger Woods' withdrawal from last week's Honda Classic likely cost him his the title of oddsmakers' favorite at this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Last week Woods withdrew from the final round after 12 holes, citing an issue with his back. Las Vegas took notice, making Rory McIlroy the 7/1 favorite.

Woods is next at 12/1 with Australian Adam Scott. Dustin Johnson is 15/1, with a trio of WGC-Accenture Match Play contestants – Jason Day, Spain’s Sergio Garcia and Jordan Spieth – at 20/1.

Tiger Woods will share a tee time with Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson, should Woods' back heal in time, for the first two rounds of the WGC-Cadillac Championship on Thursday and Friday at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster.

Among other top groups – a tough delineation in the limited-field event – Bubba Watson with Steve Stricker and Graeme McDowell, Zach Johnson with Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose, and Phil Mickelson with Rory McIlroy and Jason Day.

Leader Rory McIlroy expanded his lead early in Sunday's final round of the Honda Classic – but the margin narrowed after the leader made the turn. McIlroy's 4-over 74 led to a playoff with Russell Henley, Russell Knox and Ryan Palmer.

Tiger Woods, meanwhile, started the day 5 over for his first six holes – and on that mark through 12 holes, having been seen stretching his back during the round, he withdrew.

Tiger Woods reaches into an SUV after withdrawing during Sunday's final round of the PGA Tour's 2014 Honda Classic at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

Tiger Woods withdrew from the Honda Classic during Sunday's final round, citing a lower-back issue that has plagued him during the past six months.

Woods, 38, struggled early in the final round at PGA National's Champion Course, turning at 5-over 40, but he seemed to right the ship and was even par through four holes on the back nine.

After making a 2-foot par putt on the 13th hole, Woods walked up to playing competitor Luke Guthrie and shook hands and was taken by a van off the golf course and to his car in the players' parking ...

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Tiger Woods had to wake up earlier than usual to do it, but he made sure there wouldn’t be another Sunday off on the PGA Tour. After barely surviving the 36-hole cut, Woods posted a 5-under 65 in the third round of the Honda Classic to climb within shouting distance of leader Rory McIlroy before he teed off.

“Five is still in the ballgame,” Woods said.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Grind it until you find it. That was the mantra for Tiger Woods on a Friday in which he straddled the cut line all day. Woods carded a 1-under 69 at PGA National’s Champion course in the second round of the Honda Classic to make the cut on the number at even-par 140 for the first 36 holes.

“It was a grind, there’s no doubt about it,” Woods said. “Just one of those days where I fought out a number, which was good.”
