| In Focus A pictorial review
of the last 30 days from around the world.
Under the broiling southern sun at the Tour Championship in Atlanta, Tiger Woods was able to pull all the pieces of his game together, both physically and mentally, closing out a victory once again not with his best stuff on Sunday, but by working for everything in a final-round 71.
He was a champion again. Finally. His two-shot victory over Billy Horschel at East Lake Golf Club was Woods’ 80th on the PGA Tour, but his first in more than five years. The day was a byproduct of lots of pain, and doubts, and hard work and perseverance.
Just when you thought the anticipation for the 42nd
Ryder Cup in Paris could not get any higher, Tiger Woods headed to France on top of the golf world for the first time in five years. If the U.S. is to win a Ryder Cup away from home for the first time in a quartercentury, Woods will be a major part of it.
