Tiger Woods wins first title in over five years

Tiger Woods wins first title in over five years

Tiger Woods finished at 11 under par to earn a two-shot victory in Atlanta.

Sports fans have waited a long time for Tiger Woods to return to the top of the golf world - five years, to be exact.

He still describes himself accurately as "42 years old with a fused lower spine".

"You know, I've explained throughout the year that I just didn't know whether - when this would ever happen again", Woods said.

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.

Actually, former world No. 1 for Rose.

Little in Woods' life has been ideal in the 1,876 days since his last victory, with four back operations that left him wondering whether he would play again, but he took up here where he left off in 2013, extending his unbeaten record as a front-runner to 24-0.

Tiger has missed golf, but judging by the reaction of the fans, it is clear golf has missed its biggest star more. You can play until you're 70 years old.

"I felt like if I just went out there and did my own thing and shot under par, the tournament would be over", Woods said after he made pars at the last two holes to salt away the victory.

Imran offers talks, but Modi should be wary of Pakistan's doublespeak
On September 14, Mr Khan had written to Mr Modi about India and Pakistan resuming dialogue that have been suspended since 2015. Thursday's confirmation of the meeting had come against the backdrop of the brutal killing of a BSF jawan by Pakistani troops.

"All of a sudden it started hitting me that I was going to win the tournament, and I started tearing up a little bit".

1994: While still a student at Stanford University, Woods has a benign tumour removed from his left knee. He truly moves the needle like no one else out here, and he wins in style.

So, here he was, Rose, tied for SIXTH place on the 18th hole. As it stands, Jack Nicklaus' 18 major championship wins, the great landmark of the sport, may not be safe either.

2008-09: During the 2010 Masters, Woods reveals that he tore his right Achilles tendon in 2008 and reinjured it several times in 2009.

However Woods has progressed steadily during his comeback season, leading the British Open during the final round in July before finishing second at last month's PGA Championship. For the day, Woods had nine scores of 3 on his card. "The knee acted up, and then the Achilles followed after that, and then the calf started cramping up", Woods said. "Just to be able to compete and play again this year, that's a hell of a comeback".

"It was just a grind out there". Off the golf course, he had to overcome the embarrassment of a DUI arrest in the early morning of Memorial Day in 2017 when he was found asleep at the wheel, later found to have a concoction of pain medication in his system.

"This is a spot I'd much rather be in than certainly four or five back".

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

October 30, 2015: Woods reveals he has undergone a "follow-up procedure" to September's surgery.
