ATLANTA, GA - SEPTEMBER 23: Tiger Woods of the United States poses with the trophy after winning the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club on September 23, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Jack Nicklaus, the man widely considered the greatest golfer of all time and whose record of 18 major titles Woods is still chasing, said he was "happy" and "proud".

"All of a sudden it started hitting me I was going to win the tournament".

"But once I got the ball on the green I gave (caddie) Joey (LaCava) a high five because it was done".

Today's victory is Woods' 80th PGA Tour win, leaving him second only to Sam Snead, who had 82.

There were five years - or 1,876 days - between Woods' last victory in 2013 and his one in Atlanta, ending the longest winless run of his career. It was Johnson who unveiled red shirts at the Ryder Cup two years ago in the team room that said, "Make Tiger Great Again".

Britain, EU close to orderly Brexit: May
Like many leaders, including May, Tusk said, "We need to compromise on both sides". "We need tough, clear and precise guarantees". An emergency summit on Brexit proposed for November 17-18 will only happen as a "punchline to effective negotiations", Tusk said.

The one positive for Rose - and the only disappointment for Woods, a minor one under the circumstances - was his birdie on 18 to finish in a three-way tie for fourth and earn the season's FedEx Cup points title and the $10 million bonus that comes with it.

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

This felt just as big as a major, maybe better considering where Woods had been. "US!" in anticipation of the upcoming Ryder Cup.

Woods' victory was one of seven top-10s during the season, including runner-up finishes at the Valspar Championship and PGA Championship.

"But I just think that what I've gone through and what I've dealt with, I've gotten lucky, to be honest with you". "I loved every bit of it, the fight and the grind and the tough conditions".

1,199 - Woods' ranking in the world in November 2017.

We still played good football and that was a really big step in the season so far". It was not the reason for taking him off, of course not, so I am fine with him.

On his epic journey from near invalid to Tour Championship victory, he added: "At the beginning of the year it was a tall order, but as the year progressed and I proved that I could play, I found a swing and put pieces together, and I knew that I could do it again".

Actually, former world No. 1 for Rose.

Woods marched up the 72nd hole with rock concert scenes unfolding behind him as thousands of fans ignored security and police officers to walk the fairway and soak up the occasion. Six years later, he's healthy and coming off one of the most memorable wins of his career.

Sure, the Tour Championship's not a major, and we mostly remember the majors. Tiger finished 11-under for his first PGA Tour win since 2013. In the aftermath of two-stroke success at East Lake, the 42-year-old was of a mind to treasure the journey to this point. McIlroy shot 39 on the front nine to fall out of contention and finished with a 74 and in a tie for seventh.

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