Tiger Woods didn't quite have the finish he wanted at The Open, but the 14-time major champion looks primed to win major No. 15 at some point in the possibly near future.

Woods, 42, finished the major tournament at 5-under par. He surged to the top of the leaderboard on Sunday, but had a couple of tough holes and finished three strokes back of the champion, his playing partner, Francesco Molinari.

The fan support, as it always is for Tiger, was awesome.

Woods just took to Twitter to address his fans and everything that happened this weekend.

"The fans’ support today, and all week, was amazing. Thanks for making my return to links golf something I’ll never forget," he wrote.

Tiger will be back on the course in a couple of weeks. His world golf ranking has risen to No. 50, meaning he's qualified for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational next month.

Golfweek has more:

We don’t know for sure yet that Woods will indeed play there, but the odds seem pretty high he’ll commit. The 42-year-old loves Firestone’s South Course, having won the event on the layout eight times.

He’s also been open about how much he wanted to qualify for the event, especially as this will be Firestone’s final time hosting with the tournament moving to Memphis in 2019. So, it would be odd if he skipped now – as blowing off Firestone would also mean not having a start between the Open and PGA Championship.

Hopefully he'll be playing. Golf is undoubtedly better when Tiger is in contention.
