What has to happen for Tiger Woods to win the FedExCup?

Tiger Woods is a victor again, capping off one of the most remarkable comebacks in golf history.

Woods 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.

Meanwhile England's Olympic champion Justin Rose ensured he walks off with the FedEx Cup playoff title after finishing on six under for a share of fourth.

And if everything falls his way, he could also walk away with the FedEx Cup and the $10m bonus prize that goes with it. "It's a highlight of the year for me", McIlroy said.

"I felt like if I just went out there and did my own thing and shot under par, the tournament would be over", Woods said after he made pars at the last two holes to salt away the victory.

Had Rose not picked up a shot at the last, Woods would have taken the FedExCup as well, although that was hardly an issue for the American, who now seems odds-on to surpass Snead's record for tour victories.

"At the beginning of the year, it was a tall order but as the year progressed and I proved I could play, I knew I could do it again".

"I never dreamed @TigerWoods could come back and swing the way he has, after surgery". Entering Sunday's final round at the 2018 Tour Championship, Tiger Woods has a three-shot lead after 54 holes. And he has never coughed up a lead of three shots or more. And within the opening hour, the Tour Championship had that inevitable feeling.

In January, he referred to the Abu Dhabi Championship as "the flawless place to start my campaign" and added that the Dubai Desert Classic holds "a special spot" in his heart, as it was his first win as a professional nine years ago.

He eventually cooled off for a five-under 65 and a three-shot lead over McIlroy, who fired a four-under 66, and Justin Rose, who carded a 68, at the East Lake Golf Course.

"Some of the players I saw after on the 18th green knew what I was struggling with and it was really special to see them there".

"I think throughout this year some of @TigerWoods' issues were between his ears, as he had to remember how to win again".

It was a surreal scene, unlike anything you'd normally see at a golf tournament - the Tiger Effect.

"It's not been so easy the past couple of years but I couldn't have done it without the people around me". This is the greatest comeback in the history of golf.
