The 14-time major victor closed out a two-stroke victory by shooting a 71 in the fourth round Sunday at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

As he approached the final few holes on the Atlanta golf course, it would have taken a serious calamity for his strong lead not to prove enough.

"After Rory (McIlroy) tapped in I started tearing up a little bit". Some of the players knew what I was struggling with and it's hard to believe I've won the TOUR Championship.

In that sense his victory in the Tour Championship came as no surprise, but for anyone who had watched Woods become a shadow of his former self in recent years, surprise - or even amazement - would be a completely understandable reaction.

One year ago, while recovering from a fourth back surgery, he still had no idea if he could come back to the highest level of golf. His four bogeys over the last 10 holes cost him the No. 1 ranking back to Dustin Johnson, who shot 67 and finished third. "I knew if I shot under par I would win". So it was about me and just what I had to do.

Keyser does not remember attending a specific gathering 30 years ago at which nothing of outcome happened to her. Ford, of course, will never forget this gathering because of what happened to her there".


The victory was Woods' 80th on the PGA Tour, two short of the all-time record held by Sam Snead.

And the 14-time major victor was never in serious danger of getting caught despite a late stumble, completing a closing 71 to finish 11 under par, two shots ahead of fellow American Billy Horschel. I could handle it from there.

"Just to be able to compete and play again this year, that's a hell of a comeback", he said.

The victor of the FedEx Cup receives a $10 million bonus, and Woods has a shot if Rose falters. It was awesome to see Tiger back in the victor circle.

McIlroy, meanwhile, birdied the 16th and 18th holes to join the fray, setting up the prospect of a Sunday to remember.

Justin Rose, who entered the day three shots behind Woods, made a key birdie on 18 to win the FedEx Cup title - a four-tournament playoff with a $10 million prize to the victor. "I was hitting it absolutely dead flush, the putts I was hitting were going in and from there I just tried to hang in there".

"There were a lot of scenarios at play this week and that's what the beauty of this format is".

"When I grabbed the lead at the Open Championship (it) didn't really feel abnormal, even though it's been years since I've been in those spots", he said.

For those watching on TV, the back nine played out like a coronation ceremony for Woods, with the gallery masses seizing every opportunity to honor the icon with much-deserved applause.

Woods will have little time to celebrate his victory before joining the USA team for the Ryder Cup against Europe starting on Friday. "Pops would be very proud of the way I went out today", he said.
