Tiger winning adds to Ryder Cup buzz

Tiger Woods on Sunday claimed his first victory in more than five years, completing a two-shot win at the Tour Championship to crown a fairy-tale comeback after a almost two-year absence.

Tiger Woods managed among one of the most incredible resurgences in the background of golf, as well as maybe sporting activity generally, on Sunday as he won the Scenic tour Champion at East Lake.

After four back surgeries many thought he would never win again but he proved those doubters wrong with a remarkable victory at the Tour Championship yesterday. But his struggles have dated back to the highly public unraveling of his marriage and private life almost nine years ago.

LPGA players, including former ones such as I, have all been waiting for the rebirth of Tiger Woods. "It was a totally different vibe", said Rose, who two weeks ago ascended to the world number one ranking at age of 38. "It's a pretty damned good feeling".

Cape Town - Jack Nicklaus doesn't think his record tally of 18 major wins is safe, as Tiger Woods still has plenty of time to overtake him. "You know, he won [on Sunday] as an individual and I know how much that means to him and how important it was, but he's flipped that page pretty quickly and is really excited to join his team-mates and move forward in that process".

Woods' arrival on the pro tour in the late 1990s was credited with boosting interest in the sport as television ratings soared.

To win his first major he needed to not only endure the circus that a Woods group brings, but he needed to outlast the 14-time major champion and a host of other worthy contenders to prevail at Carnoustie.


"It was a grind out there", Woods said. "Let's see if he wins a major championship next year", said Donegan.

There was no word on Monday whether Tiger Woods flew the US Ryder Cup team charter from Atlanta to Paris overnight, but he was so high off of his euphoric Tour Championship victory Sunday, he probably could have flown the plane over the Atlantic without its engines fired. He finished the tournament at 11 under par to take home his 80th victory, two shy of Sam Snead's record.

"It's just hard to believe I've won the Tour Championship".

Woods, however, gave his army of fans roaring him on a scare though when back-to-back bogeys on the 15th and 16th holes cut his lead to two with two to play.

"This has just been an incredible day for me", Rose said on the PGA Tour's social media channels. The last man standing, the one who stopped Woods from getting the FedEx Cup was the man he played against Saturday, Justin Rose, the No. 1 player in the world.

He now heads to Paris as part of a USA team seeking to win overseas for the first time since 1993. He said the last hole was a "blur", and it remains the last Ryder Cup that both Molinari and Woods played.
