Tiger Woods takes three-shot lead at Tour Championship

In one of the great comeback stories in golf history, Tiger Woods won more than a golf tournament on Sunday.

Woods made some changes to the club, along with the 3- and 5-wood, ahead of THE NORTHERN TRUST, returning to the Mitsubishi Chemical Diamana D+ White Board shaft he'd used up until the 2013-14 TOUR season. He followed that with a two-under 68 and another five-under 65 to take a three-shot lead into the final round.

However Woods has progressed steadily during his comeback season, leading the British Open during the final round in July before finishing second at last month's PGA Championship.

"I felt hot early for sure", Woods said.

For starters, Woods needs to win The Tour Championship.

"But somehow I've been able to do that, and here we are".

He entered the final round with a three-stroke lead over his nearest challengers and a flawless 23-0 record when entering the final round leading by at least three strokes.

Tiger Woods admitted he fought back tears after ending a five-year wait for a tournament win by clinching the Tour Championship at East Lake.

Gronk's Ankle Injury Not Believed to Be Serious
Rapoport also hinted that receiver Josh Gordon could play and "open Gronk up just a little bit" against the Lions. The Patriots' second game of the year found Gronk up against the vaunted Jacksonville Jaguars defense.

Woods is now close to taking the PGA Tour title record, claiming his 80th, and coming close to Sam Snead's all-time record of 82 tour titles. It became official: Tiger Woods was back. "I felt like I could free-wheel it, and they went in".

As he approached the final few holes on the Atlanta golf course, it would have taken a serious calamity for his strong lead not to prove enough.

Rose had said it was a bit more unknown, and "there's a lot on it for him" as well as everyone else.

Woods returned to golf in January after spending two years fighting a debilitating back injury, including having surgery four times.

"It's been tough. I've had it not so easy the last couple of years and I've worked my way back".

The 14-time major victor closed out a two-stroke victory by shooting a 71 in the fourth round Sunday at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

"I said, 'Hey, you know what, I can still blade this thing out of bounds so just had to suck it up and let's hit some shots.' Once I got the ball on the green, I gave [caddie] Joey LaCava a high five because it was done".
