Tiger Woods breaks five-year title drought

  • Tiger Woods finally breaks through and tastes victory again

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.

Here's a look at Woods locking down the win on the 18th green, which sent the crowd into an absolute frenzy.

Mickelson, who will face Woods in a lucrative head-to-head shoot-out in Las Vegas in November, said he had never doubted that the 14-time major victor would add to his collection of PGA Tour titles.

"All of a sudden it started hitting me I was going to win the tournament".

The top five in the FedEx Cup all get at least $1 million in bonus money.

Rory McIlroy compared the scenes which greeted Tiger Woods' first victory in five years to those which saw Jack Nicklaus end a similarly lengthy winless streak almost 40 years ago.

"At the end of the year, it was certainly a tall order", he said.

Justin Rose of Great Britain, on the strength of a 18th hole birdie, won the FedEx Cup playoffs, making him the season-long champion of the PGA Tour. I've got a bunch of guys behind me who have been playing well and are playing well.

A blemish free front nine ensured that Woods held his advantage midway through the final round, couple with a +1 from Rose, while a double bogey on the seventh from McIlroy saw the Northern Irishman drop out of title contention altogether.

He fired a 62 earlier this month and has also done enough to force himself into the US team for next week's Ryder Cup.

"I just can't believe I pulled this off", added a visibly emotional Woods during the presentation ceremony. The players who had turns at No. 1 during his absence caught the full brunt of Woods in control.

They had to feel it, touch it, see if with their own eyes. Rose would automatically capture the title with a win, and unless there is a big rally by DeChambeau, he would likely capture the overall title with a third- or fourth-place finish. It was his 80th win on the PGA Tour, and his first since 2013. Droves of fans streamed under the ropes and in behind him, a spectacle you would expect at a British Open and not on a Sunday in September in Atlanta, and they managed to construct a great, compelling torrent. He walked away as the victor of the 2018 Tour Championship.

The 33-year-old was supporting her beau from the side of the green, and rushed to congratulate him on his win.

A birdie on his opening hole extended Woods' lead to four shots to give the former world number one a dream start.

When he returned at the Farmers Insurance Open in January, he was ranked 656th in the world, had not earned a single Ryder Cup point and seemed miles away from being able to compete with the game's best.
