By Sam McPherson Tiger Woods won the moment, thrilling the fans in attendance, but it was Justin Rose who ended up winning the FedExCup. That is the way the golf world will remember the 2018 Tour Championship, as Woods ran away with the individual title, finishing 11-under par to beat Billy Horschel by two strokes. Rose tied for fourth place at 6-under, just enough to vault him to the top of the FedExCup standings and claim the PGA Tour’s big overall prize. Rose came into the Tour Championship at the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta in second place on the FedExCup leaderboard, and there were myriad possibilities for determining the overall season champion, depending on how each of the PGA’s best golfers performed over the four rounds. Rose put himself in position to win the Cup with rounds of 66-67-68 before struggling to post 73 on Sunday. In the end, combined with points leader Bryson DeChambeau finishing 19th at 1-under par, Rose did just enough to put his name in the … [Read more...] about This Week In Golf: Woods Takes Tour Championship, Rose Wins FedExCup

PGA Tour leaderboard Silence was golden for Tiger Woods as he carded a second straight six-under-par 64 to grab a two-shot second-round lead over Jeff Woodland at the Zozo Championship on Saturday. On a day when spectators were not allowed on the premises due to what the PGA Tour said were unsafe conditions, Woods went about his business in front of a mostly eerily-quiet Narashino County Club - though some keen fans staked out positions along a lane adjacent to the fourth hole. With birdies at the final two holes, Woods jumped clear of fellow American Woodland, posting a 12-under 128 halfway total in the rain-affected event that will not finish until Monday. Woodland shot 66 for second place at 10-under, while Keegan Bradley and local favourite Hideki Matsuyama were two shots further back in a tie for third. “I hit the ball a little bit better than I did yesterday, which is nice, and I had the speed of the greens again,” said Woods, making his return to competition two … [Read more...] about Golf highlights: Silence is golden as Tiger Woods sneaks two shots clear in Japan
By Norm Elrod (CBS New York/CBS Local) — With the PGA Championship just days away and Tiger Woods’ comeback win at the Masters still lingering in our collective memories, one question must be asked. Can Tiger win another major? His fifth win at a Augusta last month was more than a decade in the making. And those 10-plus years included plenty of personal and professional challenges.

But after a promising 2018 campaign that ended with a Tour Championship win, his first win in five years, he started 2019 with two top-10 finishes. Nick Faldo, CBS Sports lead analyst and winner of six majors, observed that “by the time he then got to Augusta.

PGA Tour leaderboard Tiger Woods is back on the history trail. The 43-year-old duly converted his advantage in the rain-delayed Zozo Championship in Japan on Monday and so celebrated equalling Sam Snead’s record of 82 wins on the PGA Tour. Adam Scott, the former world No 1, spoke for everyone in the game when saying: “Tiger never ceases to amaze.” This was Woods’ first event in nine weeks and his first since a fifth knee operation, but he shrugged off the rust in emphatic style for his first title since his Masters resurrection in April. A 67 gave him a 19-under total and a three-shot victory in Tokyo over local favourite Hideki Matsuyama, with Rory McIlroy three shots further back in third. When Woods was in the midst of his back problems a few years ago, Snead’s mark seemed to be safe, along with Jack Nicklaus’s record major haul of 18.
