Tiger Woods wins Tour Championship for 80th PGA Tour title and first in more than five years.
After five years of complications in his personal life and injury woes, Woods reasserted his status as the best frontrunner in the history of the sport, leading throughout the final round and finishing at 11-under-par 269 at East Lake. Amid raucous scenes with the massive gallery chanting his name as they stampeded the final fairway, he raised his arms in triumph after tapping in to move within two victories of Sam Snead’s all-time record of 82 PGA Tour titles. “I was having a hard time not crying coming up the last hole,” Woods said after sharing a moment of celebration with caddie Joe LaCava.
”Tiger! Tiger! Tiger!” they chanted over and over, looking very much like they may storm the Tudor-style clubhouse, the roar carrying all the way to Peachtree. Then again, it was not an unexpected reaction given what Woods has meant to the game of golf – to the entire sporting world, really. Despite an influx of talented young players in recent years, golf just hasn’t been the same since Woods went away, his brilliant career derailed by debilitating injuries and personal demons.
