Golf Fans Rejoice As Tiger Woods Ends Drought, Wins Tour Championship

Tiger Woods won the 2018 Tour Championship his first win since 2013

Tiger Woods earned his first PGA Tour victory since 2013 with a two-shot Tour Championship triumph and Justin Rose won the FedEx Cup at East Lake on Sunday.

On Sunday, at the East Lake Golf Club course, Woods played a final round of 71 on the par to finish ahead of fellow Americans Billy Horshel and Dustin Johnson and capped off a memorable win. "If I could somehow piece together a golf swing this year, I felt like I could do it. somehow I've been able to do that, and here we are".

Tiger Woods returned to golf last December at No. 1,199 in the world ranking.

At one point this year, Woods was asked in a news conference if a win for him this year would complete one of the greatest comebacks in all of sports.

The greatest player of all time was fearful of even sitting in a golf cart to watch others play the President's Cup, because the bumps gave him so much pain.

The win is the culmination of an impressive comeback season for Woods, who looks to be a threat at the majors again in 2019.

Rory McIlroy, who started the day three shots back of Woods with Justin Rose, faded early and shot 5 over to end up six shots back. I couldn't have done it without the help of all the people around me.

March 2, 2014: Back pain forces Woods' withdrawal from The Honda Classic with just five holes remaining in final round. "So yes, I appreciate it a little bit more than I did because I don't take it for granted that I'm going to have another decade, two decades in my future of playing golf at this level".

Woods said he heard it but didn't see it as he didn't turn around.

Today (September 23), Woods overcame his struggles and won his first tournament since 2013.

Woods is still two wins short of Sam Sneads' record of 82 PGA titles and five wins away from surpassing 18-time major victor Jack Nicklaus. He last played in the Ryder Cup in 2012. Back in March, he finished tied for second and tied for fifth at the Valspar and Arnold Palmer Invitational, respectively. "I can't believe I pulled this off". Tiger has worked very hard to get to this place, and has played very well all season'. "I just didn't want to get run over", Woods joked afterwards.

The victory lifts Woods tally to 80 PGA Tour titles and just three wins shy of becoming the most successful player in the history of the PGA Tour. It was really special to see them at the green on 18. He won even if he did not quite win the FedEx Cup, the four-tournament aggregate event that went to Rose. That might be enough to return him to No. 1 in the world.

He drained a 10-foot birdie for a confidence-boosting start at the first, and then parred the next eight holes, using a deft short game and a hot putter to extricate himself from trouble on a couple of occasions.
