How to watch Tiger Woods at the Tour Championship on Sunday

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Woods shot a one-over par 71 at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta to wrap up a two-shot victory over Billy Horschel at the season-ending Tour Championship. Justin Rose faded late.

Rory McIlroy used to dream about playing with Tiger Woods in the final group in the final round of a tournament.

Tiger Woods has a three-shot lead with three holes to play, and now the Tour Championship has a few other developments.

-Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas finishing in a three-way tie for second or worse. For the day, Woods had nine scores of 3 on his card. Not so much for Rose. Now he's got an actual win to tuck away and point to as the ultimate capper to what has been a pretty spectacular 2018 for golf, its fans and - most of all - Tiger Woods.

Ten months later, he could go to as high as No. 13.

To become the first three-time victor, Woods needs some help despite being in a commanding position in The Tour Championship, the FedExCup's playoff finale.

Woods put his second shot on the par-five18th into a greenside bunker but recovered and as he sank his final tap-in put for victory he raised his arms above his head in glory. Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler have posted the best rounds Sunday at 65.

It marks a remarkable return to the top for Woods, who was ranked world number 1,199 less than a year ago after having spinal fusion surgery.

The edge-to-edge AMOLED screen measures 6.4in with a 2,960 x 1,440 resolution for a pixel density of 516ppi (pixels per inch). The iPhone XR will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage options in White, Black, Blue, Yellow and Coral colours.

Woods says he's looking forward to the challenge of holding off McIlroy and Rose.

Of the final six players to tee off Sunday, Woods is the only one who was under par for the final round.

His last blown 54-hole lead was a 2-shot advantage over Y.E. Yang at the 2009 PGA Championship.

Woods sure looked it Saturday, when it might have been easy to get caught up in all the hysteria. If one golfer finds a way to win both the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup, they earn a total of $11.6 million. But the day, the galleries and the TV ratings belonged to Tiger. This is the FedEx Cup playoff finale, after all, and not the lifetime achievement award portion of the postseason.

"Look", he added, "Tiger is a notoriously great front-runner, but if I go out and I play similar tomorrow like I did today, I'll have no complaints". He began play Sunday paired with McIlroy and held a three-shot lead over McIlroy and Rose. Now that his first win in five years is within reach, Woods recognizes his work isn't done just yet.

Woods, 42, completed one of the most arduous and complicated comebacks in golf history with his 80th PGA Tour victory in Atlanta.

The 14-time Major victor dropped a shot at the ninth but got back to 13-under with a birdie at the 12th hole.

Rose birdied the 18th at East Lake for a 73 to seal the top-five finish he needed to win the $10m (£7.6m) bonus on offer as FexEx Cup champion.
