Tiger Woods a winner again for 1st time since 2013

Tiger Woods is the 2018 TOUR Championship winner

The 14-time Major victor headed into the last day in Atlanta with a three-shot lead, looking to register his first tour win since 2013.

Incredibly, he nearly won the FedEx Cup too, but had to settle for second in the season-long rankings after Justin Rose birdied the final hole to finish in a tie for fourth.

One thousand, eight hundred and seventy-six days.

Woods holds a three-shot lead over Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy heading into Sunday's final round.

Dustin Johnson finished with a 67 and is in third place. Not so much for Rose.

The wait had been long since Woods' last victory - some 1,876 days.

The win helped the 42-year-old Woods capture his 80th PGA Tour victory. Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler have posted the best rounds Sunday at 65.

Garoppolo carted to locker room with knee injury
Garoppolo went down holding his left knee and remained on the field for about a minute before being helped to the sideline. Garoppolo threw TD passes to fullback Kyle Juszczyk for 35 yards and wide receiver Marquise Goodwin for 11 yards.

Woods shot 68 on Friday, after shooting 65 on Thursday. The players who have turns at No. 1 during his absence caught the full brunt of Woods in control.

He entered the final round with a three-stroke lead over his nearest challengers and a ideal 23-0 record when entering the final round leading by at least three strokes. He hit a wild tee shot to the right into the tree and made double bogey on No. 7 after a penalty drop, and then hit another drive into the crowd on the right for bogey at No. 8.

Woods conceded he knew at the start of the season it would be "a tall order" to win again.

And an awkward one for the tour. Crowds were huge. TV ratings were at 15-year highs.

But here's how he can win the FedEx Cup. Rose would earn $10 million for what the tour considers its biggest prize.

Even the President took notice. Off the golf course, he had to overcome the embarrassment of a DUI arrest in the early morning of Memorial Day in 2017 when he was found asleep at the wheel, later found to have a concoction of pain medication in his system. Things got a little dicey over the final couple of holes, but Woods ultimately pulled through.

Wood has attracted bumper galleries all year since making his return following major back surgeries. A series of back injuries kept him from golf and on Memorial Day in 2017, Woods was arrested for DUI near his Jupiter, Florida home after he was found asleep in his auto.
