Woods took a three-shot lead over Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose into the final day at East Lake and held on pick up the 80th PGA title of his career.

Of his Tour Championship victory, Woods said: “I just can’t believe I’ve pulled this off. It’s been tough.
“I’ve had it not so easy the last couple of years and worked my way back and couldn’t have done it without the help of everyone around me.”
