"The pain he had to endure, the things he had to do just to play and just how hard it was for him to walk, and he ended up walking 36 holes (in one day) and winning a US Open".
His last PGA Tour victory was in August 2013, when he won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, by seven strokes over Keegan Bradley and Henrik Stenson.
With it becoming crystal clear that his long-awaited victory was imminent, an absolutely wild scene formed on the course.
"It's the comeback story", said Terry Bradley, who traveled from Louisville, Kentucky, with his wife Rachel to follow Woods over the weekend. "It was special to see them". Fans chanted Woods' name and some screamed, "I love you, Tiger!".
World No.1 Justin Rose took out the $13.8m FedEx Cup, with his fourth place finish enough to leave him at the top of the season-long standings.
He still describes himself accurately as "42 years old with a fused lower spine".
Rose entered the week ranked No. 2 on the FedEx Cup point list, which meant if he could win at East Lake, he automatically would win the FedEx Cup as well. He carded six birdies on the first seven holes, which even drew the attention of National Basketball Association star Stephen Curry, who tweeted at Woods, "I want whatever you had for breakfast this morning!"
Woods had been troubled over the last decade not just by injuries, but also by embarrassing revelations about his sex life that led to divorce, caused sponsors to flee and smudged the clean-cut image he had cultivated even before he left Stanford to turn professional.

Tiger Woods winning is a great boost for Ryder Cup, captains agree
More people watched Woods' final round at the Tour Championship than any golf tournament this year, outside of The Masters. Tiger Woods's first PGA Tour victory in more than five years delivered huge ratings for NBC.
"Just to be able to compete and play again this year, that's a hell of a comeback", he said.
Without Rose's birdie, Tiger Woods would have won his third FedEx Cup title after starting at No. 20 going into the Tour Championship.
In March, Woods played a meaningful Sunday round when he finished tied for second at the Valspar Championship.
This is Tiger's big day, and nothing was going to change it.
In May past year, Woods was arrested on a driving under the influence charge after being found slumped at the wheel of his auto in Florida.
Tiger Woods, 42, won the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia, on Sunday.
All year, Woods had shown signs of his old self.
But within four months of telling fans he could not hit a ball 60 yards, he rejoined the PGA tour, and soon after that, earned his spot on the Ryder Cup team.
