Tiger wins again: history in Atlanta

Tiger Woods holds up the Clamity Jane Putter after winning the TOUR Championship 2018

Justin Rose, who entered the day three shots behind Woods, made a key birdie on 18 to win the FedEx Cup title - a four-tournament playoff with a $10 million prize to the victor.

It could have been an exercise in audible relief, as well, since many golf fans might have doubted Woods' ability to overcome countless knee, Achilles and back problems from the previous five years. "I've worked my way back and I couldn't have done it without the help of everyone around me", he said after winning.

Fellow American Billy Horschel finished two shots back on nine under.

At Augusta in April Woods described himself as a "walking miracle" and says he now realizes just how lucky he is.

He didn't shoot under par, and the lead went down to two after he bogeyed the 15th and 16th holes, but he did collect his 80th PGA TOUR win, two behind all-time leader Sam Snead.

"Beginning of the year, that was a tall order (expecting to win) but as the year progressed I proved I could play", he said.

The former world No.1 played his final round alongside Rory McIlroy, whose own hopes of victory dissipated after he carded a disappointing 74, but was full of admiration for his one-time golfing idol. How many years, and major championship runs, does Woods realistically have left in him?

You really need to see it to believe it.

Tiger Woods, in his Sunday red shirt, both arms raised in victory on the 18th green.

Not bad for a 42-year-old with four back surgeries who returned to competition in December at No. 1,199 in the world.

ATLANTA-Remember the old Nike ad from Tiger Woods' uber-dominant days, when he famously told the golfing world it was all about the majors? He noted that as 2018 began, "I didn't know what I was going to do, I just didn't have a clue", The Times also noted.

Put simply, Woods looked a broken man and the prospects of him contending at the highest level once again appeared slim, to say the least. Wood's last victory was in 2013 at the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.

Back on the PGA Tour in 2018, Woods missed the cut in his second event but crucially felt fit enough to add tournaments to his schedule and the results soon followed, most notably when he led the Open Championship with eight holes to play and then finished runner-up in the US PGA. Up next, Woods will compete for the United States team in the Ryder Cup in France, beginning on September 28. "It's been tough. I've had a not-so-easy last couple of years".

"Some of the other players knew what I was struggling with".
