Tiger Woods' biceps are ready for the Tour Championship

  • Tiger Woods at 2018 BMW Championship

American golfer Tiger Woods has won the Tour Championship in Atlanta, his first victory in five years.

Tiger Woods was moved to the brink of tears after capturing his first title since 2013 with a two-stroke triumph at the Tour Championship in Atlanta on Sunday that proved he was far from washed up at the age of 42.

England's Justin Rose lost his world number one ranking as a result of finishing tied fourth but still secured the overall FedEx Cup which determines the season-long PGA Tour champion, and with it a £7.6m bonus.

Well, that lengthy drought is no more, as Woods added to his trophy case by winning the 2018 Tour Championship.

"It means a lot more to me now in the sense I didn't know if I'd ever be out here again playing, doing this again", he said.

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.

"I clicked into a decent gear and got the job done". He made a comeback with a birdie at No. 13 and had consecutive bogeys during the 15th and 16th holes. "Now he's back and probably with three or four years left of being able to play at this level and everyone wants to see him while we still can".

The 42-year-old Woods delivered the flawless ending to his fantastic return from four back surgeries on Sunday with a performance that felt like old times.


Woods' last victory came 1,875 days ago in August 2013 when he captured the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

The victory was Woods' 80th, two short of Sam Snead's career tour record.

But that needle looked broken beyond fix as days without a win grew to months, the months without a win grew to years.

He had flirted with victory several times this year, mounting thrilling late charges that enraptured galleries but ultimately fizzled.

"Once I got the ball on the green, I gave Joey [LaCava, caddie] a high five cos' it was done, I could handle that from there".

"He's played such good golf all year that it's just not surprising, " Phil Mickelson said of Woods, reports ESPN.

You really need to see it to believe it. The players who have turns at No. 1 during his absence caught the full brunt of Woods in control. Then, as McIlroy finished up, and before Woods would tap in for par, tap the putter to the ground and raise his arms, he would ward off emotion as he claimed to realize at last one towering "at last". In order to win the cup, he needed to win the event - which was close to a lock all day - and Rose needed to finish in a three-way tie for fifth or worse.

He earned a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team.

'I think they understand a little bit of what dad does now, ' Woods said.
