How the world reacted to Tiger Woods’ historic victory

Sunday's Final Round saw 18.4 million minutes streamed across NBC Sports Digital platforms, an increase of 561 percent over 2017.

"I have considered him for the last five, six years a former golfer" Fox Sport's Colin Cowherd says in the clip.

So how much money did everybody make who played at the Tour Championship?

Niklaus congratulated Woods on Twitter.

"I spent 25 years playing professional golf with Tiger Woods on the scene, and any time he does anything great, that's a story and that's where we want to see him", Bjorn said Monday.

Woods said he'd be flying out to Paris with McIlroy ahead of The Ryder Cup which takes place this weekend.

Aliens star Al Matthews dies aged 75
Al Matthews, the actor who played Gunnery Sergeant Apone in Aliens , has been found dead at his home in Spain. According to IMDb , his last role, in a western movie called The Price of Death , is now in post-production.

That ratings performance is even more impressive when you factor in that that the Tour Championship went up against a full-slate of National Football League action.

Fleetwood went on to call Woods' victory "the greatest comeback of all time". The victory will likely catapult Woods to the No. 13 ranking in the world, and secures him another Tour Championship win, 22 years after he first conquered the season-ending tournament.

These striking TV numbers for Tiger Woods' final round came on an NFL Sunday, too.

Despite missing out on the title, the American said it was "awesome" to see Woods get back to winning ways.

However, he capitulated on the front nine and the challenge never materialized but, despite the disappointment, McIlroy was still able to enjoy the surreal walk down the 18th fairway with Woods.
