Tears as Tiger snaps 1876-day drought

Tiger Woods admitted he was struggling to deal with his emotions late on his way to a first win in more than five years at the Tour Championship.

Woods, chasing an 80th PGA Tour title of his career, took a three-shot lead over Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy into the last day at East Lake.

After Woods capped off the 18th hole with a par, he raised his arms up in an emotional moment.

"This whole season has been pretty remarkable considering where I have come from", said Woods.

Nicklaus, who ended a two-year barren run by winning the 1980 US Open, was himself delighted to see Woods back at the pinnacle of the sport, tweeting: 'My congratulations to @TigerWoods on winning the @playofffinale! "The fight and the grind and the tough conditions".

"He's played such good golf all year that it's just not surprising, " Phil Mickelson said of Woods, reports ESPN.

"I knew what the scenarios were". I don't know, 20 years ago, hell, I thought I was going to play for another 30 years.

Remember: All these things must happen, and Woods still has to win his first tournament since the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational.

"It is a measure of how dominant Woods was before injuries corroded his game that despite all the time he missed, he moved into a tie with Dustin Johnson for the most PGA Tour victories among active players - 19 - since the start of 2008", The Times said.

"A lot of times they equated golf to pain because every time I did (play) I'd hurt and it'd cause me more pain and now they're seeing a little bit of joy and seeing how much fun it is for me to be able to do this again", Woods said.

Woods, who returned in January after missing nearly the entire previous two years with a debilitating back injury, held a three-shot advantage heading into the final round.

"Tiger's played so well on a very hard golf course and we nearly kind of expected it".

As he tapped in for the win, he raised his hands and grinned, then hugged McIlroy and his caddie, Joe LaCava, as the crowd chanted "U-S-A", a nod to the Ryder Cup next week and a release for the crowd.

It was also hard to believe Rose could birdie the last to scramble into the tie for fourth which was enough to win the FedEx Cup after he had dropped three shots in the space of six holes on the back nine.

A bogey on the 10th was a mere blip, with Woods re-establishing a five-shot cushion at 13 under after rolling in a 13-foot birdie putt on the par-four 13th.

Woods shot 68 on Friday, after shooting 65 on Thursday.
