Tiger Woods takes Tour Championship for first win since 2013

Tiger Woods takes Tour Championship for first win since 2013

President Trump, who was spending the weekend at his New Jersey golf course, cheered on Woods.

Today's victory is Woods' 80th PGA Tour win, leaving him second only to Sam Snead, who had 82.

"I realised all of sudden I was going to win the tournament", he said. Mickelson and Australia's Geoff Ogilvy each have three wins to their name, while Dustin Johnson has five.

Immediately after his two stroke win over Billy Horschel, Tiger was greeted with a kiss from girlfriend Erica Herman.

The victory capped off a season that started with questions over whether the 42-year-old would even be able to play a full schedule after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April 2017. He returned to competition in June but struggled on with back pain.

"I just didn't know whether this would ever happen again". So, I was beyond playing. "I couldn't sit, I couldn't walk, I couldn't lay down without feeling the pain in my back and leg".

Woods entered Sunday's round with a three-stroke lead over his nearest challengers, Justin Rose, the world No.1, and Rory McIlroy, a former No.1, and a 23-0 record when entering a final round leading by at least three strokes.

Despite the blemish, world number one Rose was seemingly the only threat to Woods, as McIlroy plunged eight shots behind after an error-strewn performance with his driver.

Emotional return to Old Trafford for Alex Ferguson
Sir Alex is watching Manchester United play against Wolves from his usual seat in the directors' box this afternoon. And some of the doctors who did the operation are here too - I thought it was the right thing to do.

The win preserved Woods's ideal record of never having lost after leading by three shots or more going into the final round, a record he extended to 24-for-24. Rose finished in a share of fourth at the Tour Championship, with his birdie at the last key to halting Woods from taking the bonus pot.

Woods, however, gave his army of fans roaring him on a scare though when back-to-back bogeys on the 15th and 16th holes cut his lead to two with two to play.

Tiger Woods has had a rough few years.

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

He did have time, however, to remember his father and earliest mentor Earl, who died in 2006.

"I said, 'Hey, you know what, I can still blade this thing out of bounds so just had to suck it up and let's hit some shots.' Once I got the ball on the green, I gave [caddie] Joey LaCava a high five because it was done. 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".

"It's been an unbelievable season from beginning to end".
