Tiger Woods reveals what Rory McIlroy said to him on 18th hole

Overnight ratings for the final round of the Tour Championship on Sunday showed it was the most-watched final round of a non-major in 2018 and the most-watched round of the event since records have been kept.

Europe's top player Justin Rose finished in a share of fourth to scoop the $10 million FedEx prize but all eyes were on Woods, who has overcome four back surgeries and very public personal drama to return to the top of the game.

The 14-time major victor was paired with Rory McIlroy but the latter's challenge faded with a round of three-over par while Justin Rose also had a disappointing finish. As he walked the fairway on the 18th hole Sunday afternoon, a large crowd began chanting his name and swarming onto the course.

Woods' comeback has reinvigorated suspicions that he could break Jack Nicklaus' record for most major wins all-time, a feat Nicklaus himself called "realistic".

"I spent 25 years playing professional golf with Tiger Woods on the scene and any time he does anything great that's a story and that's where we want to see him", Bjørn said. "But it was all good".

He wrote: "My congratulations to TigerWoods on winning the playoff finale!"

Cheyenne Woods, Tiger's niece, knows just how hard her famous uncle has worked to reach this point and what this title means to him, tweeting: "This is a special one".

Woods said he'd be flying out to Paris with McIlroy ahead of The Ryder Cup which takes place this weekend. Because in the end, whatever it is these 24 guys are going to do this week, the game needs that boost of somebody like him that transcends the game to the masses, needs him at the top of the game.

Following his victory, Skratch TV released a video on social media of Woods watching those critics say he'd never win again.
