He's Back! Tiger Woods Stylishly Records First Tournament Win In 5 Years

Woods earns first win since 2013 Rose claims Fed Ex Cup

ATLANTA, GA - SEPTEMBER 23: Tiger Woods of the United States poses with the trophy after winning the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club on September 23, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Stuck in those five years are multiple back surgeries, an embarrassing DUI arrest and an admission that he wasn't sure if he would ever play again.

Woods' Ryder Cup team-mate and old foe Phil Mickelson said of the performance: "He's played such good golf all year that it is just not surprising".

NPR's Tom Goldman tells our Newscast unit: "Woods led the tournament from start to finish".

Woods built a five-shot lead at the turn, and despite bogeys at the 10th, 15th and 16th holes held off his fast-finishing compatriot Billy Horschel, who carded a 66 for second place on nine-under.

If the play-offs belonged to Rose, the week was Woods' in his 80th PGA Tour victory.

"As the year progressed and I found a swing, I knew I could do it again".

Woods, who returned in January after missing nearly the entire previous two years with a debilitating back injury, held a three-shot advantage heading into the final round.

Upon seeing Garoppolo, he caught up with the cart and had a conversation with the injured Niners quarterback. Disappointing I know, but still a solid National Football League record-breaking pace.

So close: Tiger Woods has a three-stroke lead heading into the final round.

In past years, McIlroy normally appeared at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in May, although he did skip the European Tour's flagship event in both 2016 and 2017.

"All of a sudden it hit me that I was going to win the tournament".

But Sunday was about Woods, who played alongside Rory McIlroy and put together a solid round of golf, save a couple bogeys late in his round.

With the 2018 Ryder Cup in France to come next week, Team Europe will undoubtedly be aware that should this Tiger Woods make an appearance, thing could be hard indeed.

"A lot of times they equated golf to pain, because every time I did it I got hurt, and it would cause me more pain". "Pops would be very proud of the way I went out today", he said.

"Some of the players I saw after on the 18th green knew what I was struggling with and it was really special to see them there. That's one of the greatest comebacks there is, and it happens to be in our sport".

"When I grabbed the lead at the Open Championship (it) didn't really feel abnormal, even though it's been years since I've been in those spots", he said.
