Tiger is back with a bang

Tiger Woods

For the first time in five years, Tiger Woods has finished a PGA Tour event at the top of the leaderboard.

NBC saw a 206% ratings jump from 2017 after Tiger Woods won the PGA Tour Championship in dramatic, come-from-behind fashion. His victories once piled dependably like spent calendar pages, the level and style of his success so singular it can best be described tautologically: He was Tiger Woods. "You know, I've explained throughout the year that I just didn't know whether - when this would ever happen again". Woods will end the season at No. 1 in that metric at.938, meaning that he averages picking up almost a full shot on the rest of the field during each round.

"I kept saying 'Hey, I could still play this out of bounds.' But once I got the ball on the green I gave [caddie] Joey [LaCava] a high five because I knew it was done".

The 42-year-old, 14-time major victor reasserted his status as the best frontrunner in the history of the sport, leading throughout the final round for a 1-over 71 to finish at 11-under-par 269 for a two-shot victory over Billy Horschel. "I started to be reminded about that the moment I took this opportunity as captain", he said.

UK's Labour opposition says it might back new Brexit vote
But it's far from guaranteed that a firm policy on the matter will emerge over the next few days. And he said Mr McCluskey should "stop targeting me" and argue for a "People's Vote" on Brexit .

The Tiger boost manifested itself earlier in the year during majors in which he was in contention. That means that 5.2% of households in these 56 markets tuned into Woods' win, his 80th overall, on Sunday.

"I've improved a lot as a player since 2012", said Molinari, who lost his previous singles match against Woods in 2010, 4 and 3, "and I hope to show that on the course this week". "I remember watching the 2000 U.S. Open with my grandfather when I was 12 years old, and Tiger won that tournament by 15 shots".

"We'll go out and do what we can and play our game".

"He is great not just for the sport of golf but for the sports world". And golf fans everywhere have never been happier to be wrong. Woods' victory still does not count as a major.
