Tiger Woods has won his first trophy since five years now after capturing the Tour Championship by two strokes in Atlanta on Sunday.
Woods also led throughout the final round and finished at 11-under-par 269 at East Lake where he carded a closing 71 for his 80th PGA Tour Victory.
The 42-year old raised his hands in delight after the victory with thousand of fans showing their appreciation.
He also admitted he had nearly been overcome with emotion as he walked up th 18th fairway.
“I was having a hard time not crying coming up the last hole,” Woods said, whose most recent win before Sunday had come 1,876 days ago at the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
“I kept saying ‘Hey, I could still play this out of bounds.’ But once I got the ball on the green I gave (caddie) Joey (LaCava) a high five because I knew it was done.”
