Woods wins TOUR Championship, Rose wins FedExCup

Tiger Woods acknowledges the crowd

Tiger Woods acknowledges the crowd

One year ago, Woods was still waiting for his lower back to fuse and wasn't sure he could ever play again.

Tiger Woods has won a PGA Tour event for the first time in over five years after victory at the Tour Championship.

"I was having a hard time not crying coming up the last hole", he said. "For me, I was trying to do my best to win this golf tournament and scoop the double jackpot". "Just considering where I've been, what I've had to dig through and fight through, the amount of help I had to have to get to this point". He left the competition feeling hopeless as he built a five-shot lead early in the final round and then hung on for 1-over 71 and a two-shot victory over former Gator Billy Horschel at 11-under 269.

In fact, the 42-year-old Woods' dramas far outstrip Hogan's and his fall from grace was as spectacular as any figure in sports history. "That's what this represents for me is the consistency that I've had this year, the amount of top 10s that I've had, the ability - the fact that I was able to at least keep that form going through the playoffs, obviously finishing with three top-5s". Struggling to get out of bed unaided, hoping only to recover enough to be able to play with his kids.

Rory McIlroy is in the final group with Woods and went the other direction.

On Wednesday, the staff snapped several photos of the affectionately nicknamed "Cat Grandpa" napping and shared them on Facebook . He had a cat brush and a love for cuddling cats. "I've always liked cats, and I didn't have cats as an adult".

But within four months of telling fans he could not hit a ball 60 yards, he rejoined the PGA tour, and soon after that, earned his spot on the Ryder Cup team. He needs to capture the Tour Championship and have Rose drop to a fifth-place tie or worse to have a chance at his third FedEx Cup title.

"I just can't believe I've pulled this off". Whenever he threatened, most notably at the year's last two majors, the British Open and the PGA Championship, he could not close, a wild deviation from his prime. The players who had turns at No. 1 during his absence caught the full brunt of Woods in control. "It was special to see them".

2016 - Misses all four major championships in a season for the first time in his career. It reminded him a bit of Jack Nicklaus winning the U.S. Open at Baltusrol in 1980, the crowds invading the course as the Golden Bear wrapped up a victory that defied those skeptics who thought he was all washed up at age 40. On multiple occasions, Woods was the leader after the first round and would find himself in the hunt heading into Sunday.

Woods now goes to France, where he'll play in the Ryder Cup with the rest of his US teammates.

Woods built a five-shot lead halfway through the final round at the Tour Championship in Atlanta on Sunday, moving closer to ending his five-year victory drought.
