Tiger Woods’ 80th Win Might Be His Best Yet
Tiger Woods, 42, had 4 back surgeries and went 1,876 days since his last win in 2013, but after battling his body which was so bad that for 6 months he said he could barely get out of bed, Tiger won the final event of the season, The Tour Championship.
“I’ve been sitting on 79 for about five years now, and to get 80 is a pretty damned good feeling,” said Woods. – TGRhttps://t.co/zeudcqeabH

My congratulations to @tigerwoods on winning the @playofffinale! I am very happy for him and extremely proud of him. Tiger has worked very hard to get to this place, and has played very well all season. I never dreamed Tiger could come back and swing the way he has, after surgery. I think you could argue he’s swinging better than he has in his life. He has played fantastically! I think throughout this year some of Tiger’s issues were between his ears, as he had to remember how to win again. Tiger has been close, almost there. You knew he was going to win soon, and this week he did it. It turns out the decision @rydercupusa Captain #JimFuryk made to choose Tiger for the #RyderCup was a great one. He deserved to be on the team, well before this victory. Tiger is a great player, and he’s made a great comeback! Congratulations, my friend! ?? Lastly, allow me to offer my congratulations to @justinprose99 for winning the #FedExCup! Justin has had a great year, deserves this victory, and it adds to an already tremendous resumé of being a major champion, Olympic Gold Medalist, and No. 1 in the world. Well done Justin! @pgatour
About a yr. ago Tiger uttered at a
Presidents Cup Press Conf. that he may never play golf again. Who would have thought that 12 months later he would not only win his 80th title but do it as calm and cool as the Tiger of ol’. Miraculous on so many levels. Congrats @TigerWoods

The fact that he can take that kind of an explosive rip at the ball at age 42 with a fused lower back is more miraculous than anything. 308-yard carry, straight down the middle.

On a football Sunday in 2018, Tiger Woods was the biggest star in sports again.

Tiger’s been close the last few months but his putting was average and after a switch to a mallet, Tiger saw improvement. But when he went back to the putter that won him 13 majors, his Scotty Cameron – Tiger was back. (Tiger’s won 14 majors, all with Scotty’s)

And…… the greatest of all time @TigerWoods won his first event in 5 years after two spinal fusion surgeries . The reason we all picked up a golf club is back in action and the scenes are incredible
