Rose wins FedExCup with birdie at final hole at Tour Championship

Looking like his younger self, Tiger Woods held on Sunday at the Tour Championship in Atlanta, walking away with the victory by two strokes before a large crowd that cheered him on. He followed that up with a tie for fifth at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and it was at this point that many finally understood that Woods can still play this game.

While there are some who lament the way that Woods has taken the lead on a Saturday and turned Sunday into a formality over the course of his career, this win was different because of everything that has lead up to it over the last five years.

"All of a sudden it started hitting me I was going to win the tournament". Mickelson and Australia's Geoff Ogilvy each have three wins to their name, while Dustin Johnson has five.

"I just didn't know whether this would ever happen again".

"I was beyond playing". I've worked my way back.

Despite the blemish, world number one Rose was seemingly the only threat to Woods, as McIlroy plunged eight shots behind after an error-strewn performance with his driver.

This time, the most telling moment came after Woods teed off at the 14th hole, which dissects the walk to the tee for No. 17.

And then he brought it back to life this year, especially the last four days at East Lake.

In the end, Woods' class showed, sinking a par on the final hole to claim the 2018 PGA Tour Championship title.

With his 43rd birthday approaching in December, Woods remains a long shot to win five more majors to overhaul the career tally of Jack Nicklaus even if the Golden Bear himself was not ruling it out.

2017 - Woods returns to competition in November at the unofficial World Challenge, finishing equal ninth in the 18-man field.

The victory lifts Woods tally to 80 PGA Tour titles and just three wins shy of becoming the most successful player in the history of the PGA Tour.

Woods will have little time to celebrate his victory before joining the US team for the Ryder Cup against Europe starting on Friday.

He did have time, however, to remember his father and earliest mentor Earl, who died in 2006.

"I knew what the scenarios were. If I could somehow piece together a golf swing this year, I felt like I could do it. somehow I've been able to do that, and here we are". How many years, and major championship runs, does Woods realistically have left in him?
