Woods won his first title in five years when he claimed the TOUR Championship in Atlanta, Georgia.
The 14-time major victor secured a two-stroke victory at East Lake on Sunday, claiming a first PGA Tour success since the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
After Woods capped off the 18th hole with a par, he raised his arms up in an emotional moment.
"But once I got the ball on the green I gave (caddie) Joey (LaCava) a high five because it was done".

However, as the winning moment drew nearer on Sunday, Woods has admitted his emotions nearly got the better of him. "I loved every bit of it". "The fight and the grind and the tough conditions".
"Beginning of the year (winning) was a tall order. I've got a bunch of guys behind me that have been playing well and are playing well, and we'll see what happens tomorrow". I don't know, 20 years ago, hell, I thought I was going to play for another 30 years.

Woods, whose last win came in the 2013 WGC Bridgestone Invitational, told Sky Sports: "I ground out a round today, I wasn't as sharp as I was yesterday and missed a few shots but hung in there with a bunch of pars and made a couple of putts which was nice".
Woods has not been the closer of old in his return this year from a spinal fusion, most notably at the British Open at Carnoustie where he charged into the lead halfway through the final round before faltering.

He likely needs to finish in the top five to be assured of winning the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus.
