The 42-year-old appeared to be overcome with emotion at one point during his final round at East Lake Golf Club as the victory appeared inevitable, no doubt recalling the dark times in recent years when it appeared he was finished as a force on the PGA Tour.

Stuck in those five years are multiple back surgeries, an embarrassing DUI arrest and an admission that he wasn't sure if he would ever play again. Justin Rose, who entered the day three shots behind Woods, made a key birdie on 18 to win the FedEx Cup title - a four-tournament playoff with a $10 million prize to the victor.

Justin Rose and Tiger Woods. Tweeting that Woods' performance as he neared his first victory was "very exciting". Didn't know if I'd be able to compete at this level. The second picture shows the front of Woods' profile and reads, "It again".

He started the final round at 12-under, three shots ahead of Rory McIlroy, who grew up idolizing Tiger, and Justin Rose.

Woods eventually won by two shots with victory all-but guaranteed by a trademark, laser-like iron approach to the final hole.

Golf greats took the opportunity to congratulate Woods on a win many thought would never come.

Woods now trails Sam Snead, who won 82 times, for the most victories in PGA Tour history.

This time, the spotlight will be on the youngster - let's see if it will be the teenager that does the shining. So I don't know who will be the striker of the future but I think both because we have to play 60 matches.

Cruz, O'Rourke's First Debate In Dallas
Democrats need to win a net total of two additional seats to take the Senate and 23 to assume the majority in the House. The poll, which was composed among a population of 992 adults, had a credibility interval of four percentage points.

Woods is still two wins short of Sam Sneads' record of 82 PGA titles and five wins away from surpassing 18-time major victor Jack Nicklaus.

But that needle looked broken beyond fix as days without a win grew to months, the months without a win grew to years.

In March, Woods played a meaningful Sunday round when he finished tied for second at the Valspar Championship.

"Tiger's played so well on a very hard golf course and we nearly kind of expected it". "I actually said to myself, 'I'm glad we're playing East Lake this way around, ' because if I had to birdie 17 or 18 the other way around, it would have been a pretty tough proposition". Once I got the ball on the green then I gave Joey (LaCava, his caddie) a high-five. He won even if he did not quite win the FedEx Cup, the four-tournament aggregate event that went to Rose. The players who have turns at No. 1 during his absence caught the full brunt of Woods in control. They wanted to see their man obviously pick this up, as well.

There was also a moment of magic from the former world number one on the seventh, when he drilled a 172-yard approach shot to five feet and then tapped in for birdie.

It doesn't actually matter whether he helps wins the Ryder Cup for the U.S. in Paris this week, or does go on to win another major, although he is as short as 8-1 with some bookmakers for next April's Masters.

Last month, Woods had said he felt this season was one of the finest of his career.
