It was a finish and a result many golf fans around the world had been waiting to see, and the PGA Tour season came to an end with Tiger Woods earning a remarkable comeback victory by two strokes over Billy Horschel. Tiger started the day with a three stroke lead over Rory McIlroy, and an opening birdie gave Woods a four stroke lead early. His lead would swell up to five late on the back nine, and he would need the cushion after bogeys on 15 and 16. With a two-shot lead going into the par-5 18, he hit two great shots to reach the greenside bunker and could enjoy the walk up with thousands of fans following. Three shots later, his 1-over 71 earned him his 80th career PGA Tour victory and his first since the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational.

Justin Rose, who started the Tour Championship 2nd in FedEx Cup Standings, birdied the last to finish in a three-way tie for fourth which was good enough to claim the $10 Million first prize.
