Tiger wins again: history in Atlanta

Tiger Woods won the 2018 Tour Championship his first win since 2013

After Woods' win, the crowd at East Lake erupted in euphoria.

Tiger Woods had a five-shot lead after six holes of the final round, and there is no other player that generates interest in the sport, especially after the back surgeries he has overcome.

"You just had to suck it up and hit shots".

"That's why I knelt down behind the ball, thinking, "Come on, I have to get back to work here".

The man once associated so intricately with winning won again, in the Tour Championship, by two shots over Billy Horschel, who lent Woods's nerves some late inconvenience.

"He's played such good golf all year that it's just not surprising, " Phil Mickelson said of Woods, reports ESPN. It was Johnson who unveiled red shirts at the Ryder Cup two years ago in the team room that said, "Make Tiger Great Again".

"There was a point in time I didn't know if I'd ever do this again", Woods said. "But far and away, being next to this trophy is something I'm very, very proud of".

On the final day of the British Open in July, Woods ascended to the top of the leaderboard before a few hiccups cost him.

Rose entered the week ranked No. 2 on the FedEx Cup point list, which meant if he could win at East Lake, he automatically would win the FedEx Cup as well. I loved every bit of it, the fight, the grind, the tough conditions.

Woods had been troubled over the last decade not just by injuries, but also by embarrassing revelations about his sex life that led to divorce, caused sponsors to flee and smudged the clean-cut image he had cultivated even before he left Stanford to turn professional.

You really need to see it to believe it.

Actually, former world No. 1 for Rose.

"The pain he had to endure, the things he had to do just to play and just how hard it was for him to walk, and he ended up walking 36 holes (in one day) and winning a US Open".

Only a dramatic birdie on the 18th from Rose prevented the American star from claiming the overall FedEx Cup title as well.

Captures his 79th PGA Tour title at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in August.

Woods had never lost when leading by three shots or more going into the final round.

The 42-year-old, who had five prescription drugs in his system, later pleaded guilty to reckless driving, underwent a diversion programme and spent 11 months on probation, returning to competitive golf at the end of November by admitting he was "winging it" as he waited to see if his fused back would hold up.

Mickelson meanwhile said he is looking forward to joining up with Woods for this week's Ryder Cup in Versailles, despite a disappointing showing in Atlanta which saw him finish on 13 over par.
