How the world reacted to Tiger Woods' historic victory

Tiger Woods Tour Championship run spurs ratings boost

Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian in history, was also captivated by Woods' final round performance, humbly beginning his message: "From one goat (greatest of all time) to another". The scandal shattered his image and put his win streak on hold. Out of 40 majors can he win five of them, I don't know? "Golf hasn't been the same without him", Jacqui Concolino, a seven-year LPGA veteran, said. "Just I guess the amount of attention and the buzz around the PGA Championship, around the Tour Championship, the crowd. on the 18th fairway yesterday was unbelievable".

The Tiger boost manifested itself earlier in the year during majors in which he was in contention.

"It's certainly up there with obviously all the major championships I've won, Players, World Golf Championships", Woods said, at once elated and reflective in his post-round press conference. Only 12 months ago Woods himself questioned whether he would play competitive golf again.

Other LPGA golfers believe Woods has inspired women to pick up the game of golf.

Woods revealed: "What Rory was saying, you know, Rory was just - off the tee, he was great, and then coming down 18 - between our second and third shots, he said, "This is like Jack in '80 at Baltusrol".

By dominating golf, Woods elevated the sport to a whole new level. Woods will end the season at No. 1 in that metric at.938, meaning that he averages picking up almost a full shot on the rest of the field during each round. Did people tune in even though Tiger won the Tour Championship right in the middle of Week 3 National Football League action? "Cool. That's not my definition of Tiger being back", the pundit said on ESPN's First Take. "I thought it was pretty cool, and I went to the driving range the next day".

But one Tiger Woods video of him watching his doubters diss him went viral. As the Ryder Cup gears up this week, golf fans will undoubtedly find themselves glued to the TV when Tiger is competing. Woods' victory still does not count as a major.
