The golf legend celebrated the 107th triumph of his career by winning the last tournament of the year, the Tour Championship, culminating one of the most unexpected and impressive returns in the history of the sport.
In one of the most unexpected and impressive returns of the sport, Tiger Woods achieved the 107th victory of his career by winning the last tournament of the year of the professional golf circuit in the United States, the Tour Championship.
It is the first triumph in 1,876 days of the legendary golfer, who less than a year ago was in the position 1,199 in the world after having suffered the last of the four operations to which he was subjected to solve their problems in the back.
” I had a hard time not crying on that last hole,” acknowledged an excited Woods.
“I can not believe I got it,” he said.
The winner of four Masters, three US Open, three British Open and four PGA had won their last victory in August 2013 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
Jack Nicklaus, the most majors golfer in history, with 18, acknowledged that he never believed that Woods could come back and hit the ball the way he did after the operation.
“I think he’s doing it or better than he’s done in his life, he played fantastic,” Nicklaus said.
Woods will now be part of the United States team that will participate this week in the Ryder Cup, which will be played at Le Golf National in France.
