He's Back! Tiger Woods Stylishly Records First Tournament Win In 5 Years

He's Back! Tiger Woods Stylishly Records First Tournament Win In 5 Years

The 42-year-old capped a remarkable return to action following back surgery and made his way into the winner's enclosure with a two-shot win at East Lake.

Since his five-win season in 2013, Woods was cursed with chipping woes, poor putting and snap hooks off the tee.

Horschel shot 4-under Sunday to get into contention, but Woods never fell out of the lead.

According to the PGA Tour's projected FedEx Cup standings, he still needs help to win the title.

"I know the release point and I know how it swings and my body morphed into a position where it understands where it needs to be to release the putter", Woods said.

Tiger Woods won't win a major this season.

Minnesota Timberwolves rebuffing Jimmy Butler trade calls
A max contract has been on the table for Towns to accept for months, only for him to delay signing the deal. However, late in the week it came out Minnesota owner Glen Taylor was not on the same page as Thibodeau.

"To be able to play golf again and earn my way back to this level is something that I was hoping I would do at the beginning of the year, but I didn't know". 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".

Woods has been plagued by back problems in recent times, leading to four operations, with his recuperation so stunning he was unsure about playing competitive golf again as recently as 12 months ago.

Rose played the third day with Woods and finds himself three shots behind going into the last round.

Woods took a 3-shot lead into the final round of the Tour Championship and is on the cusp of his 80th PGA Tour victory - but his first in more than five years. "And because of that, I felt comfortable when I got to Bay Hill, when I grabbed the lead at The Open championship". It wasn't like he was a healthy guy and he mentally lost it and just couldn't figure out how to play golf.

Woods has had four surgeries on his back since 2014. He admitted to NBC after the round that he came close to crying on the final hole.

After he hit his second shot to the par-5 18th safely in a bunker in front of the green, the crowd came through the ropes and followed behind in a chaotic celebration. After I hit it on the green, I started celebrating there.
