Tiger Woods finally breaks through and tastes victory again

Marion JacobsSep 24, 2018

Woods' fairy tale comeback at the PGA Tour Championship in Atlanta, Georgia, followed a two year absence from the game, in which it seemed at times he may never play again.

On the 18th hole Sunday in Atlanta, as Woods approached the East Lake Golf Club green with a win all but in hand, he walked beside playing partner Rory McIlroy, with a smile.

Woods finished fourth in the PGA Tour's season stats for scrambling, saving par 64.64 per cent of the time when missing a green in regulation.

'I just loved it out there, the fight and the grind but I was trying hard not to cry at one point, ' he said.

"All of a sudden it started hitting me I was going to win the tournament".

Woods now trails Sam Snead, who won 82 times, for the most victories in PGA Tour history.

And then came this week, Woods led wire-to-wire, and it felt like yesterday for Woods' fans, who took gleefully to social media and turned off a busy Sunday of NFL football to watch. 'At the beginning of the year this was a tall order but I proved I could progress and put it together'.

Rose, meanwhile, received a $10 million consolation prize in the form of the FedExCup, which is awarded to the victor of the tour's season-long points race, after a birdie at the 18th gave him a 73 for a share of fourth. I've had hot weeks and you win, but - you can be in the midst of average play, but this comes through consistency for me.

"Good Lord", Woods said afterwards.

Those two individuals were driving Richards out of town, but he asked them to drop him off near the camp so he could get his tent. It was, said Iowa State football coach Matt Campbell, a "cowardly act of violence".

Despite Woods' heroics, Rose is still projected to be the FexEx Cup champion.

"I just can't believe I pulled this off", added a visibly emotional Woods during the presentation ceremony.

"It's been tough. I've had a not-so-easy last couple of years", he said. It was really special to see them at the green on 18. If he finishes that way, Woods will win the $10 million prize for the FedEx Cup by winning the Tour Championship.

Nicklaus, who ended a two-year barren run by winning the 1980 US Open, was himself delighted to see Woods back at the pinnacle of the sport, tweeting: 'My congratulations to @TigerWoods on winning the @playofffinale!

Tiger Woods has a five-shot lead and is nine holes away from his first victory in more than five years. The victor of the 2019 Tour Championship will automatically win the FedEx Cup.

Woods' last tournament victory came in August 2013 at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational. The 42-year-old has 14 major championships.

Horschel shot four-under 66 to finish alone in second place, while Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler each shot the low rounds of Sunday's play with 65.

Woods will have little time to celebrate his victory before joining the USA team for the Ryder Cup against Europe starting on Friday.
