Tour Championship: Tiger Woods gets first win in five years

Photos of the crowd following Tiger Woods on the final hole are just insane. The clean strike of an iron as he held his pose.

"And occasionally I'll get hot for a couple holes and try and take advantage of it".

"I'm just blessed, I'm just lucky". He would have to settle for his PGA Tour win alone though, as Rose got a lucky jump forward on his approach shot to the par-five 18th and two-putted for birdie to win the trophy, and $10million dollar bonus.

He endured four back operations in recent years that left him wondering if he would play the game again. I'm not playing a full-contact sport or I've got to move people around in that regard.

He's seeking his 80th PGA Tour victory but first since 2013, and the first since he returned in December from a year-long absence to have spinal fusion surgery. You see these guys on the Champions Tour playing tournament golf at 70. It's exciting for golf in general that he's up there. "Go out there, take care of my business, and hopefully that's good enough".

No. 2 Justin Rose needs to finish in a three-way tie for fifth or worse.

Marc Leishman carded a 68 and Jason Day a 69, which included two double bogeys, and both sit at even par.

He was denied a bigger lead after bogeys on the ninth and 16th holes.

"It's been literally years since I've been in those spots", he said.

Sitting in uncharted waters for his latest comeback, Tiger Woods very quickly made it apparent that golf fans should be paying attention to the Tour Championship this weekend. He also lost a two-shot lead to Lee Westwood in Germany at a European Tour event in 2000.

Clearly, winning the tournament was more important to Woods. He has, he's won a bunch of tournaments.

"It's a little more unknown now", Rose said.

Woods is now close to taking the PGA Tour title record, claiming his 80th, and coming close to Sam Snead's all-time record of 82 tour titles. He started today's round with a three-hole lead and that lead was never really in doubt.

Being up by three is a much better view.

The Saturday start was simply mesmerizing.

Woods won for the first time in more than five years. Two short birdies followed.

The cheers were endless, and there was no doubting what was going on.

"I felt hot early for sure", Woods said. "What an atmosphere it is out there this week".

Woods' displays so far in 2018 suggested he was finally over the injury problems that had plagued him in recent years.

A golfer's career is rarely summed up in one week, and McIlroy is not anxious about tracking Woods on Sunday.

But when he piped his drive 348 yards down the fairway on the last, it was a coronation despite Woods putting his second in the green-side bunker and missing the ensuing birdie putt.
