Tiger Woods in numbers: Key stats from Tour Championship victory

Tiger Woods won the 2018 Tour Championship his first win since 2013

With a two-shot win at the Tour Championship in Atlanta, legendary U.S. golfer Tiger Woods clinched the comeback he longed for, after a near two-year absence in the sport and a championship drought of more than five years. Woods has been rooted to 14 majors ever since 2008 and it had been generally accepted through all his injury and personal troubles that he would never catch Nicklaus's 18.

Woods, widely regarded as one of the greatest golfers in the world, has been an influential figure for the sport with his star appeal and multi-million dollar endorsements. "Loved every bit of it".

"I was beyond playing". I've had hot weeks and you win, but - you can be in the midst of average play, but this comes through consistency for me.

His 80th win on the US PGA Tour will rank among the sweetest after battling back from back surgery in April 2017 - he admitted he feared for his career during his lowest moments - and having a number of near-misses in 2018.

The other big victor was world No 1 Justin Rose, who needed to birdie the par five 18th hole to win the $10 million bonus for the FedEx Cup - and gutsily managed it.

Rose birdied the 18th at East Lake for a 73 to seal the top-five finish he needed to win the $10 million (£7.6 million) bonus on offer as FexEx Cup champion.

"I've worked my way back, and I couldn't have done it without those around me ... some knew what I was struggling with, and it was really special to see them [other players] here". "I could handle it from there".

Wood's last tournament victory came 1875 days ago in August 2013 in the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

"He's played such good golf all year that it is just not surprising", Mickelson said. I was waiting for a break all day and to get it on the last was great timing. I had to suck it up and hit the shots.

"I've explained throughout the year that..."

Woods had started the day with a three-shot lead over Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy.

On Saturday, Woods, 42 looked in a class of his own as he carded a five-under-par 65 to leave himself on 12 under for the tournament at Atlanta's East Lake course. He is now just two short of Sam Snead's all-time PGA Tour title record of 82.
