  • Tiger Woods carded a 65 third round at the Tour Championship

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Steve Stricker won the inaugural Sanford International for his third PGA Tour Champions title of the year, closing with a 3-under 67 for a four-stroke victory.

He kept winning though, racking up five victories in 2013 before his back failed him.

While there are some who lament the way that Woods has taken the lead on a Saturday and turned Sunday into a formality over the course of his career, this win was different because of everything that has lead up to it over the last five years.

The 42-year-old had gone more than five years in between victories before his historic win at the PGA Championship on Monday (AEST).

Welcome to the official YouTube channel of the PGA TOUR.

August 8, 2014 - Misses the cut in the PGA Championship and says he will take the rest of the year off, including the Ryder Cup, to get healthy.

"The game's hard enough without looking at other people".

Get ready for cricket like never before.

"So yeah, I appreciate it a little bit more than I did because I don't take it for granted that I'm going to have another decade, two decades in my future of playing golf at this level".


Despite having a relatively poor fourth round - Woods shot 71 for the day - the 14-time major champion's imperious form on the first three days gave him a solid platform and he duly delivered - he carded a 65, 68 and 65 on the first three rounds.

Justin Rose plays his shot from the third tee during the third round of the Tour Championship golf tournament at East Lake Golf Club. He said as part of his recovery process he had to work around his back injury.

October 28, 2015 - Has a third procedure on his back.

There was also a moment of magic from the former world number one on the seventh, when he drilled a 172-yard approach shot to five feet and then tapped in for birdie. It's a golf course that's very easy to make bogeys, and it's hard to make birdies.

February 3, 2017 - After opening with a 77 at the Dubai Desert Classic in calm conditions, withdraws before the start of the second round because of back spasms. Police found him alone and asleep at the wheel. He attributes it to a bad combination of pain medication. "You know, I'll obviously still watch leaderboards, I'll still look at where I'm at in relation to the field and to the lead, but I have to just, first and foremost, focus on what I can do, fairways, greens, hit good putts, and just try and repeat that".

He began the day with a three shot lead and consolodated that instantly with an opening birdie to move four clear of Rose.

In May 2017, Woods was arrested in Florida and charged with driving under the influence.
