Why Tiger can surpass my 18 majors: Nicklaus

Rory Mc Ilroy will partner Tiger Woods in the final round

Rory Mc Ilroy will partner Tiger Woods in the final round

It had been five long years (and one month) since Woods-arguably the most famous athlete on the planet-won a tournament; but it likely made Sunday's triumph at the Tour Championship that much sweeter, with the 42-year-old Woods cruising to a two-stroke win at historic East Lake Golf Club.

Tiger Woods has arrived at the course today for his final round of the Tour Championship.

Woods posted the best round of Saturday in the 30-player field, a 5-under 65 that included an electric start with six birdies in his first seven holes and seven overall for the day. A birdie and he'd jump into a three-way tie for fourth - as well as into a mountain of cash.

"And occasionally I'll get hot for a couple holes and try and take advantage of it".

Woods says he expects to be comfortable despite the pressure tomorrow and has been surprised at how routine his close calls have already felt this year.

"I left myself in good spots, too, so I was able to take a run at some of the putts".

The Tour Championship is Woods's 80th victory on the PGA Tour, second only to Sam Snead's 82.

September 27, 2017 - A vice captain at the Presidents Cup, Woods says he has no idea what his future holds because he's only hitting 60-yard shots.

"Some of the players I saw after on the 18th green knew what I was struggling with and it was really special to see them there".

If anyone strikes the business deals with those blacklisted by the USA can face sanctions like imposed on China. On Thursday, the USA added China's Equipment Development Department and its director to a sanctions blacklist.

With one round remaining, Woods leads by three from Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose on nine under.

"As this year progressed, I proved I could play, I found a swing, put the pieces together and knew I could do it again". I'm not playing a full-contact sport or I've got to move people around in that regard. But on Sunday, nearly everything felt different, even as Woods regained a big piece of his past. "I couldn't sit, I couldn't walk, I couldn't lay down without feeling the pain in my back and leg".

Woods is 12-under for the tournament.

Woods admitted it was an emotional final round as the crowds swelled to sizes never seen before on the PGA Tour. Woods is headed into the final day at East Lake looking for his first win since 2013.

The 14-time Major victor is a two-time former Tour Championship victor and enjoys a remarkable record of winning 54 of 57 PGA Tour events when holding the 54-hole lead.

The golfing world has been waiting for the moment the 42-year-old returns to his winning ways, and there's an incredible statistic backing him to do so.

The victory erased any last lingering doubts about Woods' ability to compete at the highest level, something he had served notice of with top 10 finishes at the British Open and US PGA Championships.

Behind Woods, McIlroy is lurking menacingly after carding a four-under-par 66.
