'Miracle of Medinah' was where back trouble started, admits Tiger Woods

Tiger feels close to ending drought after achieving Tour Championship goal

While Smith would secure a $US10 million bonus if he was to pull off the inconceivable and become the first Australian to win the title, he would also bank $US1.6 million for the tournament.

"It's something that I haven't done in a number of years, and this is a good starting point".

Those were the days.

Despite arriving at East Lake ranked 10th in the FedEx Cup standings, Smith could still hoist the Cup if he wins the season finale and those ranked above him find themselves even slightly off their game.

"To be able to play golf again and to earn my way back to this level is something that I was hoping I would do at the beginning of the year, but I didn't know", Woods said. Obviously, it's two years from now.

"It's exciting to be back", said Woods.

This was more about precision, and Woods felt in total control.

East Lake is only part of the reward.

For starters, Tiger will finish this season with 19 starts, the most he's played since 2012.

The Ryder Cup gets under way in two weeks time as Europe and U.S. go to battle at Le Golf National in Paris. With a win, three second-place finishes, and five other top-10s, it hasn't been a bad year.

"To have a fully-fit Tiger Woods back on the PGA Tour has been tremendous and significant", said Monahan. Bookmakers give him the fifth-shortest odds to win at East Lake. The next group of five players are at 4 under, all the way down until the final five players in the 30-man field are at even par.




It's been so long since Woods won a tournament of any kind. Last month, his runner-up showing at the PGA Championship moved him back into the top 30. The wayward driver has been a factor, like for most of his career's second stage, but it's more than that.

DeChambeau, a three-time victor this season, is delighted to be making his Tour Championship debut.

"I seem to have got most of those things going well, but there's always something missing". "I'm putting some of the pieces together".

Woods has been in contention, though. Woods had the lead on the 11th hole at the British before fading to a tie for sixth. He shot a 62 at Aronimink in the opening round of the BMW Championship two weeks ago on a rain-soaked course that allowed just about everyone to go low.

His team-mate Molinari is the only other European player ranked inside the top-20 at eighth, while USA's Finau (12), Spieth (14), Johnson (16) and Dechambeau (19) occupy places in the top-20. Didn't know how many tournaments I'd play in, and next thing you know, here I am in the Tour Championship.

Over the course of the season, golfers will accumulate points based on how well they perform at each event, with the majors offering the most points (600) for a victory. "Both teams are very deep this year and I think it will be fun to see how it plays out". "I've never encountered something that thick", he said. He's still rich and famous. "It has made it much easier to understand going in".

Woods inspired a generation of kids to take up golf. Making it here is an accomplishment for Woods this season.

Woods, 42, has acknowledged that winning is more hard than it has ever been with the amount of young talent on Tour.

"I'm excited about the Ryder Cup and excited about the FedEx Cup", Finau said last week while in Utah for a tournament supporting his Tony Finau Foundation. "I've changed some of my technique as well as my equipment, and I'm very close".
