Carol SchramFeatured ColumnistAugust 25, 2013

Tiger Woods had a roller coaster final round at The Barclays on Sunday, ultimately coming up just short of forcing a playoff with Adam Scott.

After a good start, Tiger's lingering back issues flared up dramatically on his second shot of the 13th hole, leading some to wonder whether he'd be able to finish his round.

Following three rough holes, Woods regained his form by the 16th, recording back-to-back birdies to pull himself within one stroke of the leader. But a long birdie putt on 18 stopped just short. Woods ended his day at 10 under par, one shot behind Scott in a four-way tie for second place.

Tiger's finish allows him to retain his status at the top of the FedExCup standings after the first playoff tournament of 2013. His back issues are certain to be an ongoing topic of conversation leading into next weekend's Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston.
