What has to happen for Tiger Woods to win the FedExCup?

Finau played the front nine in 1-over par Saturday with three bogeys, but came back with four birdies on the back nine at holes 10, 11, 17 and 18.

He almost won the FedEx Cup, too, until Justin Rose survived a late meltdown with a birdie on the final hole to tie for fourth place and secure the overall FedEx Cup and its prize of $10m (£7.6m). Then on the back nine, it was more of the same. It was as spectacular as it was boring, as nostalgic as it was mundane.

A birdie on No. 1 by Woods seemingly sent a shock wave throughout the course, and the old Tiger intimidation factor began to roar.

As long as Woods can stay healthy, he should be able to challenge for more wins next season. On one hand, it was astonishing.

Remember: All these things must happen, and Woods still has to win his first tournament since the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational.

It was 1876 days since Woods' last PGA Tour victory.

One year ago, Woods was still waiting for his lower back to fuse and wasn't sure he could ever play again. It might also be the most meaningful victory of his career. For the first time in five years, your guy is a victor on the PGA Tour. "Just considering where I've been, what I've had to dig through and fight through and the amount of help I've had to have to get myself to this point". "I loved every bit of it".

So far, it's been a great day for Woods.

Rory McIlroy is in the final group with Woods and went the other direction. He's repeatedly said that just making to East Lake with this final 30 was a victory.

The win for Woods, who is part of the United States team for next week's Ryder Cup in France, means he is now two short of Sam Snead's all-time PGA Tour title record of 82.
