Tiger Woods sends fans into meltdown with astonishing eagle

Virginia Santiago

Woods made an eagle putt from just over 25 feet on the par-5 18th hole for a 5-under 65 and a share of the lead Thursday with Rickie Fowler in the Tour Championship.

Woods began this season-ending event with only a small chance of claiming the $10 million bonus that goes to the overall victor of the FedEx Cup play-offs, and only a victory here would change that. Rory McIlroy, and Justin Thomas were another shot behind.

The 14-time major victor has stated his belief that a drought-ending tournament triumph is close and his last-hole eagle at East Lake sounded an ominous warning to his rivals on Thursday.

A first win since 2013 has eluded him, but qualifying inside the top 30 players on the PGA Tour to make it to the exclusive finale at East Lake, near Atlanta, this week is something he couldn't have envisaged at the start of the year.

The Tour Championship is a 30-man tournament and the final event of the FedEx Cup play-offs. Despite hitting only two fairways through 11 holes, he wasn't losing much ground.

"But I know good scores are right there; I won't be giving up on this tournament just yet because there is still plenty of FedEx points and money to play for".

It was just like yesteryear for Woods, who knew he had executed the shot to perfection well before his ball landed in the heart of the green and stopped 27 feet from the hole.

Woods, who will represent the United States at next week's Ryder Cup, recovered from a bogey at the first and made back-to-back birdies at five and six. "I didn't get off to necessarily a great start on my swing but I managed to kick my way around", said Fowler.

The aces remain with the players in the top five on the FedEx list - Woods was 20th - with their destiny in their own hands, knowing a victory would guarantee them the mammoth bonus.

FedEx Cup standings leader Bryson DeChambeau's 71 has left him vulnerable to being usurped by Rose. "Definitely happy for him".

"We don't play very many places like this where if you have control of your ball, if you have control of your game, you're probably going to have a good chance to win", Thomas said.
