  • Tiger Woods

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

"And because of that I felt comfortable when I got to Bay Hill and when I grabbed the lead at the Open Championship things didn't really feel abnormal even though it's been years - literally years - since I've been in those spots".

Droves of spectators followed the final group up the fairway, and marshalls struggled to remain in complete control as people swarmed both Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy as they approached the green. "I had to suck it up and hit some shots".

But the world No 1 rallied back on the 18th to register a birdie to ensure he walked away as the FedEx Cup champion.

Trump Promises Second Summit with Kim Soon
Moon met with Kim for a third time last week. "Today we commit to fighting the drug epidemic together", he added. He says US automobiles, pharmaceuticals and agricultural products will gain better access to Korean markets.

While Woods won the PGA Tour Championship, he did not win the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus that goes with it. Justin Rose birdied on his last hole, keeping Woods from his third FedEx title. A camera distracted him before the shot; he stepped back and snipped. And it was his first victory in more than five years, dating to the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational. He left the competition feeling hopeless as he built a five-shot lead early and hung on to win the Tour Championship.

"Just to be able to compete and play again this year, that's a hell of a comeback", he said.

"Simple math says that if I play a clean card, the guys behind me have to shoot 67 to force it into extra (holes)", Woods said.

Tiger Woods is looking to end his five-year drought.

Russian Federation agrees to supply Syria with missile defense system
Shoigu said it was one of the counter-measures to maintain security in Syria's airspace after the loss of the Ilyushin-20 plane. Earlier in the war, Russian Federation suspended a supply of S-300, which Israel feared Syria could use against it.

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. He noted that as 2018 began, "I didn't know what I was going to do, I just didn't have a clue", The Times also noted. Teryn Schaefer presents the best social media posts from around the world of golf in "Good, Bad & Unusual" and after each day's play brings you the biggest talking points in "The Takeaway".

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.

And having won 106 tournaments around the globe, Woods was quizzed if there was any further room for a 107th victory prize. Woods admitted he wants to win in Atlanta, but the golfer is not taking anything for granted.

February 20, 2018 - Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk announces Woods as one of his vice captains, says Woods still wants to make the team.

Giroud reveals why Liverpool doubleheader is crucial for Chelsea
Asked if his star player had done so against West Ham , the Italian said: "Not in the first half". Maybe a spectacular match but, for us, very hard ". "So it's OK, one point, for today".

With a chance to cap his remarkable comeback season from spinal fusion surgery with a win, Woods could send the sporting world into meltdown. I just happened to choose a school that actually was red, and we wore red on our final day of events.
