Vintage Woods Takes Three-Shot Lead At Tour Championship

Vintage Woods Takes Three-Shot Lead At Tour Championship

Despite his early five-stroke lead, Woods still left fans with a nail-biting finish, carrying a two-stroke lead walking to the 18th hole.

Woods double-bogeyed the 16th after finding rough of the tee and then plugged in a bunker with his second shot, as Rose got up and down from sand to save par at the 17th and made a tap-in birdie at the last to set the clubhouse target.

Woods said he knows his late father, Earls Woods, would have been proud of his win and remarked that his children finally know that he is half decent at this golf game.

"I would love to be able to win this event; I've got a three-shot lead but a bunch of guys behind me are playing well; we'll see what happens tomorrow", he said. The fight, the grind, the tough conditions.

"At the end of the year, it was certainly a tall order", he said. Tiger has worked very hard to get to this place, and has played very well all season'.

"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".

I was having a hard time not crying coming up the last hole.

Johnson had first moved to world number one in February 2017 and remained atop of the Rankings for 64-weeks until the second week in May this year.

Before the final round at the PGA Tour championship in Atlanta, Tiger Woods had won 14 major championships and won 79 times on the PGA Tour.

The 42-year-old returned to golf this season after missing most of the previous two years with a debilitating back injury.

The victory erased any last lingering doubts about Woods' ability to compete at the highest level, something he had served notice of with top 10 finishes at the British Open and US PGA Championships.

And the 14-time major victor was never in serious danger of getting caught despite a late stumble, completing a closing 71 to finish 11 under par, two shots ahead of fellow American Billy Horschel.

At times Woods couldn't walk, and was even forced to crawl because of constant pain shooting up his back and down his leg.

Justin Rose lost the battle but won the war, clinching the FedExCup and the $10 million prize that accompanies it with a birdie at the final hole at the Tour Championship in Atlanta on Sunday.
