Tiger roars: Woods in total control at Tour Champs

Tiger Woods carded a 65 third round at the Tour Championship

Tiger Woods carded a 65 third round at the Tour Championship

Woods won the season-ending Tour Championship by two shots to claim his first victory since August 2013 in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

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.

After Woods capped off the 18th hole with a par, he raised his arms up in an emotional moment.

Woods marched up the 72nd hole with rock concert scenes unfolding behind him as thousands of fans ignored security and police officers to walk the fairway and soak up the occasion. "It's just hard to believe I won the Tour Championship". Once I got the ball on the green then I gave Joey (LaCava, his caddie) a high-five.

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

And ESPN went so far as to say: "Woods is now the favorite to win next year's Masters".

"Rose, who carded five birdies and two bogeys in his 67, told Sky Sports: "(I'm) happy with that score, it was a little rough around the edges compared to yesterday but you can't play like yesterday every single day. "The fight and the grind and the tough conditions".

"He's played such good golf all year that it's just not surprising, " Phil Mickelson said while Woods was on the back nine.

"I got off to an ideal start", Woods said.

"This season there was a return to competitive golf and a steady climb in the rankings as Woods pieced together a swing that wouldn't ravage his 42-year-old body", Goldman reports. I was just hoping for a better lifestyle.

Tiger Woods celebrates his Tour Championship win.

As one of the most consistent players on the PGA Tour and a Top-10 machine, maybe it's fitting that Rose is the only golfer to ever win the FedEx Cup without winning any of the playoff events. He would be flying out a few hours later towards France for the Ryder Cup.

Billy Horschel shot a 4-under 66 to finish in second place. He's playing so well on a very hard golf course.

Fowler - who began the day alongside Woods - recovered from an opening-hole bogey to drain a 25-footer at the next and post back-to-back birdies from the fourth to reach the turn one ahead.

Woods will be partnered with Rose on Saturday at 7-under, and the pair will try to hold off Rory McIlroy, who is now third at 5-under, and Justin Thomas, who is in a four-way tie for fourth at 4-under.
