Woods wins: Five-year drought ends

Tiger Woods is the 2018 TOUR Championship winner

He is now just two PGA Tour wins behind Sam Snead, reports ESPN.

While Woods won the PGA Tour Championship, he did not win the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus that goes with it. Justin Rose birdied on his last hole, keeping Woods from his third FedEx title.

Tiger Woods, lower center, and Rory McIlroy, lower left, emerge from a horde of fans following Tiger on their way to the 18th green on the final day of the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

No one brings excitement like Woods, even when he plays so good and so smart that he eliminates any potential for drama. Woods shot a final round of 1-over-71 in his final round to finish at 11-under for the tournament and collect the $1.62 million winner's purse.

Woods, a two-time victor of the tournament, carded six birdies in his opening seven holes during his third round, opening up a five-shot lead at one stage.

They rushed the course, forming a massive crowd around Woods. "The people who are close to me saw the struggles and what I was going through". "Once I got the ball on the green I gave Joey a high-five because it was done".

Rose had said it was a bit more unknown, and "there's a lot on it for him" as well as everyone else. A series of back injuries kept him from golf and on Memorial Day in 2017, Woods was arrested for DUI near his Jupiter, Florida home after he was found asleep in his auto.

Texas school head resigns over 'can't count on black quarterback' comment
It's a very ignorant comment that doesn't deserve any more play. "I don't think anyone who speaks like that should get any run". Watson took the high road when answering questions from reporters Wednesday during media availability.

Sometime, somewhere, Woods must've questioned if he would ever be able to do it again.

And on the back nine of the PGA Championship last month in St. Louis, it looked like Woods might finally break through, win his 80th career title and 15th major championship. That might be enough to return him to No. 1 in the world.

The wait had been long since Woods' last victory - some 1,876 days.

Remember: All these things must happen, and Woods still has to win his first tournament since the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational. And within the opening hour, the Tour Championship had that inevitable feeling.

But Woods' near-miracle season was just getting started.

The 42-year-old Woods, who returned from an extended absence after spinal fusion surgery in December, has played a comeback season in which his contended several times.
