Tiger WoodsWINDEMERE, Florida (Mark Soltau/TigerWoods.com) — Tiger Woods concluded the 2014 golf season on a positive note in the 16th Hero World Challenge at Isleworth Golf & Country Club in Windermere, Florida.

No, he didn’t win, Woods closed with an even-par 72 and tied for last in the 18-player event won by 21-year-old Jordan Spieth, who posted a tournament-record 26-under par winning score of 262, breaking the previous mark of 266 set by Tiger (2007) and Davis Love III (2000) at Sherwood Country Club. But after rehabbing from back surgery and not competing since the PGA Championship last August, Tiger’s body and newly tweaked swing looked solid other than a rusty short game.

Inspiration can be found in many places and in many ways.

Tiger Woods has often talked about how he was inspired by his father Earl, and many think he's never really been the same since the passing of his dad.

In the meantime there is no denying that countless young, aspiring golfers have looked to Tiger Woods for their inspiration as they attempt to learn the game.

Young Tommy Morrissey is basically the same as many of those young aspiring golfers...except for maybe one major difference. He was born without most of his right arm.

WINDERMERE, Fla. — Jordan Spieth won the Hero World Challenge with a performance tournament host Tiger Woods could appreciate.
 
Staked to a seven-shot lead, Spieth blew away an elite field at Isleworth and set two tournament records Sunday when he closed with a 6-under 66 for a 10-shot victory over Henrik Stenson of Sweden.
 
From three birdies on his opening four holes, punctuated by a hybrid hit perfectly to 12 feet for eagle on the par-5 seventh, Spieth turned the final round into a casual walk along the lakes and palatial homes of Isleworth.
