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.
