A timeline since Tiger Woods last won a tournament

  • Rory Mc Ilroy will partner Tiger Woods in the final round

Phil Mickelson led the praise for Tiger Woods after the former world number one ended a five-year title-drought with victory at the Tour Championship here Sunday. "Once I got the ball on the green I gave Joey a high-five because it was done".

Woods is now in prime position to capture his first PGA Tour win since the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

After multiple back surgeries, Woods, 42, said his belief returned as the year went on. I don't know, 20 years ago, hell, I thought I was going to play for another 30 years.

"I was kind of waiting for a break all day, waiting for a putt to drop or something good to happen, and it just wasn't really happening through the back nine".

The Ryder Cup and the game of golf has suddenly taken on a whole new complexion as Tiger Woods is back in winning form after picking up his first victory in five years.

"It's obviously exciting for the tournament, it's exciting for golf in general that he's up there but for me, all I can do is concentrate on myself".

Only two bogeys reminded fans Woods was human, the latter coming after a poor tee shot on the par-4 16th.

Woods finished Sunday 11 under for the tournament, a two-stroke lead over second place.

"Well, I need to get there first, and that's my responsibility to get there", he 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.

The only scenario not now in position after three rounds is Rose, who would need to fall a few spots (and Woods win the tournament) for Woods to win his third FedExCup title.

The 14-time major champion's win at East Lake Golf Club chalks up his 80th career win.

Woods and four-time major victor McIlroy will play together in the last group out in Sunday’s final round.

Pro golfer Justin Rose, 38, had a final-round 73 that took him out of contention for the Tour Championship.

Woods had a five-shot lead after six holes of the final round, and there is no other player that generates interest in the sport, especially after the back surgeries he has overcome.

Jason Day closed with a two-under 68 to finish at two under, while fellow Queenslander Cameron Smith posted the same score to earn an even-par score.
