Tiger Woods in numbers: Key stats from Tour Championship victory

Tiger Woods wins his first Tour victory in over five years at the Tour Championship

"I think obviously for me this year it rewarded consistent golf". "For me, I was trying to do my best to win this golf tournament and scoop the double jackpot".

Woods led the final round throughout, starting out with a three-shot lead, and finished 11-under-par at East Lake.

The 42-year-old, 14-time major victor carded a one-over-par 71 at Atlanta's East Lake Golf Course to claim the 80th PGA Tour title of his glittering career.

"My body was a wreck", recalled Woods, who hoped the operation would alleviate debilitating back and leg pain.

"We never doubted he would not win again, not from what I've seen he's been swinging the club and the way he's been playing".

But he returned last December after a fourth back surgery and tied for ninth at the Hero World Challenge.

Four gunmen opened fire on the crowd on Saturday, killing civilians and 12 members of the country's elite Revolutionary Guards. The attack in Ahvaz came as the country marked the anniversary of the start of its 1980 to 1988 war with Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

As Tiger Woods strode down the 18th fairway at at Atlanta's East Lake club, thousands of baying fans following close behind, the world of golf and beyond was once again in thrall to the United States star.

Woods delivered the ideal ending to his wonderful return from four back surgeries on Sunday with a performance that felt like the old days.

The Golf Channel's Chandel Bramblee tweeted: "This is the greatest comeback in the history of golf".

Woods had been a two-time former Tour Championship victor and now holds the record of winning 55 of 58 PGA Tour events when holding the 54-hole lead. He had amassed almost $114 million in career earnings.

It was vintage Woods, wowing the Golf crowd all over again.

"Despite an influx of talented young players in recent years, golf just hasn't been the same since Woods went away, his brilliant career derailed by debilitating injuries and personal demons", wrote Paul Newberry, sports columnist for the Associated Press news agency.

These will apply to nearly 6,000 items, including handbags, rice and textiles. The US economy is booming and China's is showing signs of stress.

"My eyes started tearing up a little bit".

First, though, it's the Ryder Cup.

Several times this season, at the British Open and the USPGA Championship, Woods came close to winning but couldn't close the deal.

There were five years - or 1,876 days - between Woods' last victory in 2013 and his one in Atlanta, ending the longest winless run of his career.

Woods, who returned in January after missing nearly the entire previous two years with a debilitating back injury, held a three-shot advantage heading into the final round.
