Tiger makes a comeback…
ATLANTA, Ga. – Tiger Woods has surpassed most of his goals this season after missing the majority of the last two years due to injury. Adding a win at the regular-season ending Tour Championship would put an exclamation mark on his comeback.
“I want to get that W,” Woods said Wednesday at East Lake Golf Club, where he is one of 30 participants in the last of four FedExCup Playoff events for the first time since 2013.
Overcoming four back surgeries, Woods has registered six top 10 finishes in 17 starts on the PGA Tour in 2018, something few thought possible. He’s come close to recording his 80th career victory several times and would love to accomplish it this week
Regardless where Tiger Woods ends up it has been a stelar year for him. Coming from ranked 667th at the beginning of year to making it to championship and being ranked 21st.
“The season itself has been amazing,” said the 42-year-old Woods, the only two-time winner of the FedExCup. “To be able to play this well and to come back from where I’ve come back and to get here has been a pretty tall order and something I’m proud of.”
Next week, he will compete for the United States in the Ryder Cup outside Paris.
Woods enters No. 20 on the FedExCup points list. If he wins the Tour Championship, he has a chance to claim the title and the $10 million bonus.
Good luck Tiger. -JHCO
