Tiger Woods draws big crowds to Valspar Championship

- Blue skies, green courses, and Tiger Wood's traditional Sunday best, a red shirt. For the first time in nearly 5 years, Woods was in the hunt for a win on a PGA course. With that, comes the crowds. 

Tiger Woods made his debut at the Valspar Championship earlier this week and drew more people to the annual tournament in Palm Harbor than is typical.

The Valspar Championship officially began Thursday at the Innisbrook Golf Resort off Belcher Road. 

Thousands of people attended the final round Sunday. In the end, Paul Casey took the purse, with Woods coming up short by 1 stoke. 

"We are definitely the stereotypical weekend golf fans, we came out to see Tiger," said fan Sarah Hood. 

The last time Woods won a professional tournament was the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in 2013.
