On Sunday, September 23, at the East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta, Georgia, Tiger Woods won his 80th Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) Tour after not having a victory in five years. Wood’s battled injuries throughout the majority of his career, however in 2014 back spasms and nerve pain started to get the best of him. Woods sat out of many tournaments and underwent many surgeries along the way but after a successful spinal fusion surgery in April of 2017 he returned this year ready to play and determined to reclaim the title. He finished The Tour with a score of -11 and is now only two victories shy of tying Sam Snead’s record for most PGA Tour
wins. Following the victory, Woods is now ranked 13th in the world and has secured a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup Team. In an interview with the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (ESPN), Woods had this to say about his performance, “I really didn’t do anything great, but I didn’t do anything poorly either. I was very consistent from tee to green and I missed the ball in the correct spots the entire week.” Although Woods may not be very impressed by his performance the victory still stands and could mark the return of the reign of Tiger Woods in the PGA.
