How the world reacted to Tiger Woods' historic victory

  • Tiger Woods has stormed to a commanding lead during the third round of the Tour Championship

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".

Justin Rose plays his shot from the third tee during the third round of the Tour Championship golf tournament at East Lake Golf Club.

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.

Justin Rose knows the overwhelming majority of fans at the Tour Championship on Sunday will be cheering for Tiger Woods, so it might be a blessing that he will not be paired with the American in the final group.

He will head to France this week for the Ryder Cup back somewhere near the peak of his powers, and with Sam Snead's record of 82 US Tour victories in his immediate sights.

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.

The 14-times major victor took a three shot lead into today's final round and carded a one over par 67 to finish on 11 under for the tournament and seal a two stroke victory over compatriot Billy Horschel.

Kyle Stanley and Spain's Jon Rahm are a further three shots back on six under, six strokes behind Woods.

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

Woods posted a 12-under 198 total while Englishman Rose recovered from a bogey, bogey start to card a 68.
