Tiger Woods caps off unbelievable comeback with a win

It was announced last week that the FedEx play-offs pot will be doubled to $70m with the victor receiving $15m, a hike from the $10m the FedEx Cup victor will collect tonight at the Tour Championship at East Lake. He was victorious at the season-ending Tour Championship Sunday at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

One year ago, Woods was still waiting for his lower back to fuse and wasn't sure he could ever play again.

The only disappointment - a minor one under the circumstances - was realizing as he came down the 18th that Rose had made birdie to finish in a three-way tie for fourth, which gave him the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus. 'It's the flawless place for me to open my campaign, ' he said in January, 'but the landscape has shifted dramatically.

And the 14-time major victor was never in serious danger of getting caught despite a late stumble, completing a closing 71 to finish 11 under par, two shots ahead of fellow American Billy Horschel.

If the play-offs belonged to Rose, the week was Woods' in his 80th PGA Tour victory.

Tiger Woods has spoken of the desperation he felt during his long battles with back pain, following his drought-breaking victory at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

"I never dreamed @TigerWoods could come back and swing the way he has, after surgery". Woods has never lost a three-shot lead or more in 23 attempts.

Teryn Schaefer presents the best social media posts from around the world of golf in "Good, Bad & Unusual" and after each day's play brings you the biggest talking points in "The Takeaway". So it was about me and just what I had to do.

But with a double-bogey looming, he regrouped to hit his next delicate shot stone dead for a tap-in bogey, before Rose sank an eight-foot birdie to cut the gap to three.

For those watching on TV, the back nine played out like a coronation ceremony for Woods, with the gallery masses seizing every opportunity to honor the icon with much-deserved applause.

"I think throughout this year some of @TigerWoods' issues were between his ears, as he had to remember how to win again".

Tiger Woods celebrates his first win in five years. I am very happy for him and extremely proud of him. This is the greatest comeback in the history of golf.

"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".
