MARANA, Ariz. – One day after a ceremonious return to golf, Tiger Woods is on his way home.

Tim Clark of South Africa played 16 holes without a bogey and pulled ahead for good on the back nine. His 4-and-2 victory knocked Woods out of the Accenture Match Play Championship on Thursday.

Woods holed out a 50-foot bunker shot for birdie and appeared to be making a run. But his tee shot on the 15th hole hit a cart path and went over a fence and out-of-bounds, costing him the hole.

The good news for golf is it probably won’t have to wait eight months to see him again.
