Tiger Woods of the United States celebrates making a par on the 18th green to win the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club on September 23, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The FedExCup is decided by four playoff events in August and September, and the 38-year-old Rose needed a birdie on the final hole to seal victory and prevent Woods from taking home two pieces of silverware.
A year ago, he was recovering from a fourth back surgery.
TOM GOLDMAN, BYLINE: Two things we haven't seen in a long time - Tiger Woods in his traditional Sunday red shirt and black trousers tapped in a tournament-clinching putt yesterday - his last win was in 2013 - and then the goose bump moment right before.
While Woods's win comes near the end of the PGA Tour schedule, it will likely drive interest in two big golf events later this year.
AN emotional Tiger Woods struggled to comprehend how he had pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history after ending his five-year wait for a tournament victory. "I think he felt like. he wanted to get out there and shoot some good numbers and feel good about himself on the golf course".
JACK NICKLAUS believes Tiger Woods still has a realistic chance of matching his record tally of 18 major championships. "I still had a two-shot lead, but anything could still happen".

The other male classmate Ramirez said was involved in the incident told the magazine, "I have zero recollection". Kavanaugh definitively stated, "We're talking about an allegation of sexual assault".
Woods' arrival on the pro tour in the late 1990s was credited with boosting interest in the sport as television ratings soared.
While many had doubted if Woods would ever be competitive again, he sent a convincing message that he is indeed back.
"So yeah, I appreciate it a little bit more than I did because I don't take it for granted that I'm going to have another decade, two decades in my future of playing golf at this level". It means a lot more to me now in the sense because I didn't know if I'd ever be out here again playing. He had to have multiple back surgeries, which saw him having to cancel appearances on the PGA tour.
Woods had never lost when leading by three shots or more going into the final round.
Just a year earlier, in fact, he was rated No. 1,199 among global golfers, and he'd just wrapped up a fourth back surgery - no small feat for a man who makes a living on the golf course. He finished at 11-under 269 and won $1.62 million, along with a $3 million bonus for finishing second in the FedEx Cup.
A chaotic celebration that golf hasn't seen even in the best of times. Or might it provide a silver bullet for Europe in that, if its players can take down Woods in any match, it could provide an added shot of adrenaline and confidence to their side? Woods was a captain's pick for the USA squad.
