  • Tiger Woods: I was close to tears on the last hole

The victory was Woods' 80th on the PGA Tour and puts him just two wins behind Sam Snead who holds the all-time record with 82.

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. Furyk credited Woods with quickly switching into team mode. He does so much for the game of golf.

"You could see the emotion in (Woods) fighting back tears".

Following his victory, Skratch TV released a video on social media of Woods watching those critics say he'd never win again.

Bjorn has also issued a rallying cry, saying he wants his team to relish their chance to take part in what is now one of the world's biggest sporting events. But there is a difference this time round that speaks of sport's deeper connection to the trials and agonies of normal life. For everyone in golf, it's brilliant'. "It's the whole team we're up against". Woods is playing in the Ryder Cup with the rest of Team USA. We know we've got to play our best to come up against this team and that's what's in front of us. Is it extra motivation? "They are well aware of it and they are well aware of how hard it is to win in Europe".

Golf Channel announced that final round coverage on NBC drew a 5.21 overnight rating, up 206% from 2017, making it the highest non-major PGA Tour broadcast of 2018.

Six of the European team also played in Atlanta, but captain Bjorn is not anxious about fatigue.

"These are 24 of the best players in the world and, when they go up against each other, they are all capable of awesome things on both sides", Bjørn said.

"Achieving big things obviously takes a bit out of you but they will carry themselves through this week because they're top athletes and this is what they've been looking forward to probably the most all season".
