Tiger Woods managed among one of the most fantastic resurgences in the background of golf, as well as maybe sporting activity generally, on Sunday as he won the Scenic tour Champion at East Lake.
The FedExCup is decided by four playoff events in August and September, and the 38-year-old Rose needed a birdie on the final hole to seal victory and prevent Woods from taking home two pieces of silverware. But his struggles have dated back to the highly public unraveling of his marriage and private life almost nine years ago. When Woods won his first PGA Tour event in more than five years, there were more people watching than at any moment during the U.S. broadcasts of The Open or the U.S. Open this year.

Whether the United States wins its second straight Ryder Cup won't depend on what Tiger Woods does in Paris, but what Tiger Woods did at East Lake could (and should) give them a jump start. During the tournament, he put out a series of tweets that culminated with him catching up with Tiger after the victory.
"In your mind you're very set on where you want to go with it, and something uncharacteristic has to happen if you're going to change it, but you're pretty much set in your mind where it's all going to go". Out of 40 majors can he win five of them, I don't know?

Furyk admits a number of fans were "unruly" at Hazeltine - but is not expecting to receive the same treatment at Le Golf National when the biennial contest starts on Friday.
