Tiger Woods Has Won His 80th Tour Victory at PGA Tour Championship

Can Bjorn lead Europe to victory at Le Golf National

Team captain Jim Furyk spoke of the added "buzz" in the camp brought about by Tiger Woods' PGA Tour Championship victory as the USA Ryder Cup team arrived in Paris for golf's biennial showpiece. It was closing in on 6 p.m. ET and NBC's cameras were picking up extraordinary images - hundreds, maybe thousands, of people swarming behind Tiger Woods as he made his way to the 18th green at the Tour Championship on Sunday. Today, we've gotten a big reminder.

"It's incredible, it really is", Woods told reporters. TV ratings for the final round have been released and they are staggering.

On Monday, NBC revealed that their ratings for the final round of the Tour Championship were up more than 200 percent from a year ago.

But this much is certain: Woods' win will help Woods, who's finally liberated after playing so well for so much of this comeback year without tasting the nectar of victory until Sunday.
