Tiger Woods takes three-shot lead at Tour Championship

"I appreciate it much more now than 20 years ago".
This time, it was surreal.
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.
But on Sunday, nearly everything felt different, even as Woods regained a big piece of his past.
After two back surgeries six weeks apart, he couldn't lie down, sit or walk without pain.
An emotional Tiger Woods reflects on winning his first PGA Tour title for five years. Onlookers packed three-, four- and 10-deep at the ropes, their T-shirts bearing slogans such as "The Return", and "He's Back", and "If Anyone Can", plus the familiar "Make Sunday Great Again". He shot one-over par for the day and 11-under for the win, beating the runner-up, Billy Horschel, by two strokes.
"Probably the low point was not knowing if I'd ever be able to live pain-free again", Woods said afterward. "I hadn't won any tournaments in which they can remember, so I think this will be a little bit different for them".
Woods is celebrating his 80th career PGA win - two short of the career record held by Sam Snead.
He's back again. This victory, his first since the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in August 2013 - 1,876 days, to be exact - brought him to No. 13 in the world.
Here's a look at Woods locking down the win on the 18th green, which sent the crowd into an absolute frenzy.
"Once I got the ball on the green, I gave Joey [LaCava, caddie] a high five cos' it was done, I could handle that from there". "Loved every bit of it".
2019 promises to be a huge year for Woods, and he will certainly be looking to add another major to his collection. My hands are good enough, and I just didn't know if I could piece together a golf swing. It was really special to see them at the green on 18.
In that sense his victory in the Tour Championship came as no surprise, but for anyone who had watched Woods become a shadow of his former self in recent years, surprise - or even amazement - would be a completely understandable reaction.
He fired a 62 earlier this month and has also done enough to force himself into the U.S. team for next week's Ryder Cup.
