The TOUR Championship, the final of the four events in the FedExCup Playoffs, is contested at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, GA.

With it becoming crystal clear that his long-awaited victory was imminent, an absolutely wild scene formed on the course.

However, there are many who need a win to be convinced and at the final tournament of the 2017-2018 season, Tiger Woods gave them that.

Woods said he knows his late father, Earls Woods, would have been proud of his win and remarked that his children finally know that he is half decent at this golf game. "It was special to see them". I think you could argue he is swinging better than he has ever in his life, "Nicklaus said on Twitter". He left the competition feeling hopeless as he built a five-shot lead early and then hung on for a 1-over 71 and a two-shot victory over Billy Horschel. He's playing so well on a very hard golf course. But he birdied the last hole to grab the FedEx Cup - and a $10-million bonus, as ESPN pointed out.

The 42-year-old is up to 13th, rising eight places care of his dramatic Tour Championship success at East Lake GC on Sunday. 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.

Woods finished fourth in the PGA Tour's season stats for scrambling, saving par 64.64 per cent of the time when missing a green in regulation.

After making a birdie on 17 to reach 7 under, Johnson had a chance to put himself ahead of Rose in the projections for the FedEx Cup title.

Woods won the season-ending Tour Championship by two shots in Atlanta for his 80th PGA Tour title - his 79th having come in April 2013.

How consistent was Tiger on this day?

A year ago, there was no guarantee anyone would see much of Woods, much less Woods winning.

The victory elevates the 42-year-old in the rankings to number 13 in the world.

Six birdies in the first seven holes of his third round helped Woods to a five-under 65, opening up a three-shot lead over Rory McIlroy heading in to Sunday.

He earned a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team.
