Tigers Woods Wins 1st Pro Golf Tournament in 5 Years
Tiger Woods is finally back on track! The ace Golf player has surprised fans with his win since 2013.
TMZ reports that the 42-year-old star beat Billy Horschel by 2 strokes with an 11 under par finish at the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta on Sunday. This victory marks Woods’ 80th tournament win.
Tiger Woods’ 5-year golf tournament drought is OVER — ’cause he just won his first PGA Tour since 2013 … and he did it in glorious fashion.
Tiger came out on top Sunday during the PGA Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Course in Georgia, where he finished 11 under par … and 2 strokes ahead of Billy Horschel, who came in 2nd.
The final hole was crazy … a massive crowd of spectators followed Tiger as he approached the green and hit his way out of a sand trap. He had a chance for birdie, but had to settle for par after he missed the hole by mere centimeters. It got the job done though … and people lost it.
During his exit interview where he was asked what he proved to himself, Tiger said … “It was just a grind out there, and I loved every bit of it.” He went on to say about his return to form … “At the beginning of the year, certainly, that was a tall order. But as the year progressed, and I proved that I could play, I found a swing and put pieces together. And, I knew I could do it again.”
His interview was interrupted by a massive “TIGER” chant behind him, and it nearly moved TW to tears. At win #80 … we’ll say the comeback is complete.
Speaking shortly after his win as the crowd cheered, Woods shared
