Tiger Woods scores 1st Victory in 5 Years in Remarkable Individual Comeback
Tiger Woods has won the Tour Championship, his 80th PGA Tour title, capping one of the most remarkable individual comebacks in sporting history when the 14-time major champion and overnight leader closed with a one-over-par 71 and at 11 under, finishing two shots ahead of runner-up Billy Horschel (66).
It is the first victory worldwide for Woods since the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone and he is now just two titles shy of Sam Snead’s all-time list record of 82.
Having sat on the sidelines for 10 months last year while recovering from spinal fusion surgery and facing the possibility of never playing golf again, former world No.1 Woods’ ranking plummeted to 1,199 in November.
But on Sunday the 42-year-old tapped in for par at the par-5 18th at East Lake Golf Club to earn a storybook win that will propel Woods eight spots to world No.13.
