Phil Mickelson led the praise for Tiger Woods after the former world number one ended a five-year title-drought with victory at the Tour Championship here Sunday.

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

"This is going to be up there with one of the better accomplishments I have had, " Woods said about the possibility of winning Sunday. I loved every bit of it, the fight, the grind, the tough conditions. "I just stuck with it out of superstition, and it worked".

"Obviously I had a plan A today of trying to get out there and challenge Tiger and try to win the Tour Championship, but that wasn't to be so plan B quickly came into the equation".

"I was having a hard time not crying coming up the last hole", Woods said.

The first six of those birdies came in the opening seven holes as Woods, who had been tied for the lead with Rose on seven under par, made a blistering start.

Woods's 12-under-par aggregate sees Justin Rose and a resurgent Rory McIlroy as his closest challengers.

Tiger Woods reflects on his comeback win, and 80th on the PGA Tour.

Woods' stunning return to form has also seen him return to the Ryder Cup as a player for the first time since 2012.

"Beginning of the year, that was a tall order (expecting to win) but as the year progressed I proved I could play", he said.

The 14 major victor did it in Atlanta, amidst a roaring cheer by the crowd.

Has back surgery and announces he will miss the Masters for the first time. This week, under the broiling southern sun at the Tour Championship in Atlanta, he was able to pull all the pieces of his game together, both physically and mentally, closing out victory once again not with his best stuff on Sunday, but by working for everything in a final-round 71. "I got off to just an ideal start. and the next thing you know I'm off and running".

"A bogey at No. 16 put me behind the eight ball". "But I knew that it was halfway through a Saturday".

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.

Woods poured in a 20-foot birdie putt on the first hole.

Woods now trails Sam Snead, who won 82 times, for the most victories in PGA Tour history.

His season-ending Tour Championship victory sent social media into frenzy, much like it had the raucous crowd around the 18th green. He has, he's won a bunch of tournaments.

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.

Rose hit the par-5 18th in two and successfully two-putted to clinch the cup.

According to U.S. publication Heavy, she was the general manager at the golfer's restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, for several months.

Rose has wider reason to keep Woods within view.
