McIlroy believes his decision to miss The Northern Trust was justified

Woods, whose ailing back threatened to end his career just over a year ago, can win the FedEx Cup if everything goes his way at the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta this weekend.

The 14-time major victor hit a one-over 71 at East Lake to top the elite 30-player field as his closest overnight challengers Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose struggled to mount any resistance. Woods finished Sunday 11 under for the tournament, a two-stroke lead over second place.

A poised and controlled effort, Woods fired a final-round 71 to finish the week second in the FedEx Cup standings. If he finishes that way, Woods will win the $10 million prize for the FedEx Cup by winning the Tour Championship.

"I had a hard time not crying coming up that last hole."

Woods played true to history in claiming this win.

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

The victory was Woods' 80th on the PGA Tour, two short of the all-time record held by Sam Snead.

"Certainly, this is going to be up there as one of my better accomplishments I've had [if I win]", Woods told NBC. The quick answer is the Ryder Cup this week in Paris.
