Tiger finally scratches a five-year itch

Tiger Woods wins his first Tour victory in over five years at the Tour Championship

Tiger Woods wins his first Tour victory in over five years at the Tour Championship

An emotional Tiger Woods completed an astonishing comeback to win the season-ending Tour Championship by two shots and record his first win in five years.

Chasing a first win since 2013 and the 80th PGA Tour title of his career, Woods took a three-shot lead over Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy into the last day at East Lake and the 14-time major victor was never in serious danger of getting caught.

"My body was a wreck", recalled Woods, who hoped the operation would alleviate debilitating back and leg pain.

At Augusta in April Woods described himself as a "walking miracle" and says he now realizes just how lucky he is. "I loved every bit of it, the fight, the grind and the tough conditions. I think obviously for me this year it rewarded consistent golf". They felt it, that atmosphere.

"I think they understand what Dad does now". It's not what I used to be able to do. But "whenever he threatened, most notably at the year's last two majors, the British Open and the P.G.A. Championship, he could not close, a major deviation from his play in his prime".

Rose started the day three back of Woods but couldn't mount a charge.

It is the second consecutive year the Tour Championship victor did not also win the FedEx Cup.

Woods' last tournament victory came in August 2013 at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

The 14-time major victor signaled that he had turned a corner after years of pain and disappointment.

683 - weeks he has spent at world number one during his career, a record.

Only a dramatic birdie on the 18th from Rose prevented the 42-year-old from claiming the overall FedEx Cup title as well.

With the remainder of the 30-man field struggling to make any inroads, Woods then played solid if unspectacular golf to keep a stranglehold on the lead.

"I was having a hard time not crying on that last hole", Woods said after the hard-fought win. 'At the beginning of the year this was a tall order but I proved I could progress and put it together'. "To get 80 is a pretty damn good feeling", Woods added.
