Tiger Woods' PGA victory is also a huge win for NBC

Tiger Woods Tour Championship run spurs ratings boost

Jim Furyk describes Tiger Woods 'buzz' as USA Ryder Cup team arrives in Paris

The victory was Woods' 80th on the PGA Tour and puts him just two wins behind Sam Snead who holds the all-time record with 82.

Tiger Woods admitted he was struggling to deal with his emotions late on his way to a first win in more than five years at the Tour Championship.

He now heads to Paris as part of a US team seeking to win overseas for the first time since 1993. On any given day Tiger can be the best in the world. We want to see him at the top of the game.

"We're reminded of it quite often".

"You could see the emotion in (Woods) fighting back tears".

Tiger Woods proved to be ratings gold again.

When it is taken into account that most of these matches took place when he was far and away the best golfer in the game and winning majors for fun, it is a shocking, but not that perplexing record. It was great for the greater aspect of the game.

"Flying tonight with the guys, it's going to be fun".

Bjørn's opposite number, Jim Furyk, is charged with overseeing a successful defence of the Ryder Cup and a potential first U.S. win in Europe for 25 years. I am very happy for him and extremely proud of him. "To look back at the start of the year and to now have accomplished a goal like that, to be a part of this team, and now to be a player, is just - it's beyond special". But many people thought the following video was real.

"He won yesterday as an individual and I know how much that means to him but he's flipped that page pretty quickly and is really excited to join his team mates and move forward in that process".

Tiger Woods wins the 2018 Tour Championship. "It's obviously a nice buzz for our team".

Furyk's players are well aware that the Americans have not won a Ryder Cup on European soil since 1993. "There's not like a big 25 sitting in there anywhere. They are well aware of how hard it is to win in Europe".
