Tiger Woods watchers were excited today, to see that the golfer who hasn’t won a tournament in 15 months began the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic just one shot back of the leader.But the man who made Sunday dominance his trademark, folded on this Sunday, shooting a 75, including a crushing double-bogey on 18.
