Tiger Woods caps off amazing comeback with a win

The 42-year-old capped a remarkable return to action following back surgery and made his way into the winner's enclosure with a two-shot win at East Lake.

He hadn't won a tournament since the 2013 Bridgestone International.

Caught in a three-man clash for the title, Woods shook off Adam Scott late in the final round, leaving Brooks Koepka as his main adversary standing in his way for a 15th major championship win.

"Simple math says that if I play a clean card, the guys behind me have to shoot 67 to force it into extra", Woods added.

Today's victory is Woods' 80th PGA Tour win, leaving him second only to Sam Snead, who had 82.

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.

Kyle Stanley and Spain's Jon Rahm are a further three shots back on six under, six strokes behind Woods.

Woods' overall record of 53-4 on the PGA Tour with at least a tie for the lead is mind-blowing itself. "I started tearing up a little bit", Woods said.

"I had a hard time not crying coming up that last hole."
It became official: Tiger Woods was back. "Sometimes it works but it just feels very familiar to me". "I had to suck it up and hit some shots".
