Ryder Cup 2018: A sporting spectacular you cannot afford to miss

Tiger Woods wins TOUR Championship, but Justin Rose holds FedEx Cup

Reacting to Woods ending a five-year victory drought at the Tour Championship on Sunday, Nicklaus said with today's technology and conditioning, there's no reason why Woods, who has 14 major titles, could not win five more before he calls it a day.

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.

One year ago, while recovering from a fourth back surgery, he still had no idea if he could come back to the highest level of golf.

"I was pretty emotional when Rory [McIlroy] was tapping", Woods said after the tournament. "It was neat to be part of the team, to be a part of helping the guys in any way I possibly could to make them feel comfortable, to get them into the right circumstances to allow them to play their best golf".

Woods' comeback has reinvigorated speculation that he could break Jack Nicklaus' record for the most major wins of all time, with 18 - a feat Nicklaus described as "realistic." "I still had a two-shot lead, but anything could still happen".

Last few years have been not-so-great for Tiger Woods.

NBC saw a 206% ratings jump from 2017 after Tiger Woods won the PGA Tour Championship in dramatic, come-from-behind fashion.

Finding a partner for Woods was always a challenge for successive US captains for various reasons but this time, with Woods back after missing the previous two editions, there is likely to be a longer queue with their hand up than in previous years. "Just went for a little chunk-and-run, and I didn't try and play the lobber all the way back to the flag".

"They knew what I was struggling with", Woods said.

"I sat in a bar yesterday to watch the tournament, and a group of about seven women sat down next to me", LPGA player Marina Alex said.

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.

Woods was made to sweat however after a shaky three-over-par 73 on his final round.

At one stage, it looked as though Woods would add the $10 million FedEx Cup prize to his Tour Championship victory, but the cash eventually went to Justin Rose. He is now just two wins away from putting great Sam Snead behind and clutching the top position in the list of "Most career PGA Tour wins". "I remember watching the 2000 U.S. Open with my grandfather when I was 12 years old, and Tiger won that tournament by 15 shots".

But none carry the weight that Woods does even if his Ryder Cup record is poor by his previously high standards.

A friend of the golfer told PEOPLE in April that while Woods and Herman may not be tying the knot any time soon, he has developed a fondness for her.
