Tiger Woods holds on to finally end title drought

Woods raised both arms over his head after he tapped in for par and a 1-over 71 for a two-shot victory over Billy Horschel, the 80th victory of his PGA Tour career and his first in more than five years. Woods leads the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta by three strokes, and now we get to see how well Tiger 2.0 - or Tiger 3.0, or Tiger 4.0, depending on how you count such things - handles the pressure of playing with a lead.

Horschel shot four-under 66 to finish alone in second place, while Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler each shot the low rounds of Sunday's play with 65.

Though Woods did capture the Tour Championship on Sunday, it was Justin Rose who picked up the 2018 FedEx Cup crown and the $10 million that goes with it.

"I was having a hard time not crying on that last hole", he said in a CBS interview.

Coming into the final day with a three-shot lead over Rory McIlroy, the Irish golfer's chances quickly faded as Woods demonstrated some of the form of old. Thus far it has stuck, though, and Woods leveraged a rejuvenated body and fresh swing into a season I'm not sure anyone could have imagined - Woods himself included - at the start of the year.

Tiger Woods won't win a major this season.

It was victory that meant everything to Woods, who has been sidelined by a number of back surgeries over the last few years.

Tiger Woods had huge galleries follow his final round as he looked to close out the Tour Championship golf tournament. He won five times in 2013, but injuries cost him the better part of five years.

Woods said prior to this final round if he was able to win, it would be one of the "better accomplishments I've had, just considering where I've been and what I've had to do through and fight through and amount of help I've had to have to get myself to this point".

Woods' next stop will be next weekend's Ryder Cup.
