Tiger Woods Wins First Tournament In More Than Five Years

Tiger Woods claimed victory on the 18th green Sunday. This was his first victory in more than five years, dating tot he 2013 Bridgestone Invitational. It was the 80th victory of his PGA Tour.

“It was a grind out there,” Woods said to ESPN. “I loved every bit of it. The fight and the grind and the tough conditions and just had to suck it up and hit shots, and I loved every bit of it.”

Just a year ago Woods was recovering from a fourth back surgery. He truly doubted his ability to return to the top.

“I don’t know what my future holds,” months after spinal fusion surgery meant he was still unable to take full swings with a golf club.

According to ESPN, Woods is now the favorite to win next year’s Masters. Heading into the Tour Championship, he was 12-1 behind then-Masters favorite Jordan Spieth. By the end of the tournament, Woods’ odds had been trimmed to 9-1, ahead of Spieth’s, at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas.
