As Tiger Woods strode down the 18th fairway at at Atlanta's East Lake club, thousands of baying fans following close behind, the world of golf and beyond was once again in thrall to the U.S. star.

Woods, who finished with an 11-under-par aggregate 269, raised his arms in delight after the victory, with several thousand fans ringing the green roaring their appreciation. "I hadn't won any tournaments in which they can remember, so I think this will be a little bit different for them".

"That's why I knelt down behind the ball, thinking, "Come on, I have to get back to work here".

It could have been an exercise in audible relief, as well, since many golf fans might have doubted Woods' ability to overcome countless knee, Achilles and back problems from the previous five years.

"At the end of the year, it was certainly a tall order", he said.

"The low point was not knowing if I'd ever be able to live pain-free again, " Woods said.

Amid the excitement, it was easy to forget current world No. 1, Justin Rose, had birdied the 18th hole to finish tied for fourth place and secure the FedEx Cup - which serves as the finale to the PGA Tour season - as well as a check for $10 million.

"It's the comeback story", said Terry Bradley, who traveled from Louisville, Kentucky, with his wife Rachel to follow Woods over the weekend. In September 2018 he revealed that his back problems surfaced during the 2012 Ryder Cup and forced him to miss a session for the first time.




Despite Woods' heroics, Rose is still projected to be the FexEx Cup champion.

'I said, yeah, I just didn't have the tight trousers and the hair.

Now he is expected to go to No. 13 in the world after dropping as low as 1,199th late a year ago. The players who have turns at No. 1 during his absence caught the full brunt of Woods in control. "It was special to see them".

"The pain he had to endure, the things he had to do just to play and just how hard it was for him to walk, and he ended up walking 36 holes (in one day) and winning a US Open". He walked away as the victor of the 2018 Tour Championship.

Captures his 79th PGA Tour title at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in August. It was his first PGA win since 2013.

Tiger Woods has won his first professional golf tournament in more than five years. 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. On multiple occasions, Woods was the leader after the first round and would find himself in the hunt heading into Sunday.

The next stop for Woods is to board a plane with the rest of his USA teammates for France and the Ryder Cup this week.
