Tiger Woods Is Now the Favorite To Win the 2019 Masters

Never once looking like he was going to shirk the lead and crumble under the pressure, Woods pushed out further ahead as a series of potential challengers came and went.

"Once I got the ball on the green I gave Joey [La Cava, his caddie] a high five because it was was done and I could handle that from there". Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth are second favorites at 12-1 with Justin Thomas rounding out the top five at 14-1.

Rose, meanwhile, received a $10 million consolation prize in the form of the FedExCup, which is awarded to the victor of the tour's season-long points race, after a birdie at the 18th gave him a 73 for a share of fourth.

The victor of the FedEx Cup receives a $10 million bonus, and Woods has a shot if Rose falters. "World No. 1, hell of a season".

"I never dreamed @TigerWoods could come back and swing the way he has, after surgery".

This is Tiger's big day, and nothing was going to change it.

It had been five long years (and one month) since Woods-arguably the most famous athlete on the planet-won a tournament; but it likely made Sunday's triumph at the Tour Championship that much sweeter, with the 42-year-old Woods cruising to a two-stroke win at historic East Lake Golf Club.

"A lot of times they equated golf to pain, because every time I did it I got hurt, and it would cause me more pain".

So I have to organise them better defensively and the players have to understand that'. We have spoken and I told him he can score 40 goals.

Was anything different having gone more than five years without winning? The walk from the putting green snakes some 80 yards across the road and through a gallery, and everyone could hear him coming from the procession of cheering. I've been playing well throughout the entire summer, just piecing it together, building, building and building.

The buzz was endless.

He drained a 10-foot birdie for a confidence-boosting start at the first, and then parred the next eight holes, using a deft short game and a hot putter to extricate himself from trouble on a couple of occasions. When the putt dropped and cheers died, there was a wild sprint some 200 yards up the hill as fans tried to get into position for the next shot.

On and on it went.

The victory was Woods's first since his win at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in August 2013.

Victory for Woods would cap a fine return to the top level this year following spinal fusion surgery in April 2017.

Fresh off the victory, Woods will head to France next week to compete for the United States at the Ryder Cup.
