1:02 Thomas Bjorn shares his Ryder Cup memories and looks ahead to this year's contest

"It's been an unbelievable season from beginning to end and I appreciate it much more now than 20 years ago". We know we've got to play our best to come up against this team and that's what's in front of us.

If you follow Skratch TV, which was launched by the PGA Tour in 2015, you know they cover the lighter side of golf, creating memes and humorous videos.

Hicks, the lead voice of NBC's golf coverage, called it the most improbable comeback in sports history - obviously, a subjective line that Andre Agassi, Ben Hogan, and Monica Seles fans might take issue with - but improbable it absolutely was given Woods was sitting at No. 1193 in the World Golf Rankings on November 18, 2017. Heck, Woods himself told fellow green jacket winners he was "done" at the 2017 Masters Champions Dinner. "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". TV ratings for the final round have been released and they are staggering.

Woods' last major victory was the 2008 US Open, but Sunday's heroics have the golf world believing the 42-year-old may win another major.

Trump lauds Kim in United Nations return
Moon said he will discuss with Trump what their corresponding measures could be when they meet on the sidelines of the UN. On Monday, the USA leader seemed to change tone as he hailed " tremendous progress on North Korea ".

More people watched Woods' final round at the Tour Championship than any golf tournament this year, outside of The Masters.

80 in Tiger Woods' PGA Tour career wasn't a major championship, but it might be just as memorable.

Following his victory, Skratch TV released a video on social media of Woods watching those critics say he'd never win again. Imagine how good the TV ratings will be for the 2019 Masters if Woods is in serious contention on Sunday.

Furyk's players are well aware that the Americans have not won a Ryder Cup on European soil since 1993. The Ryder Cup, taking place in France, will be televised Friday-Sunday morning.
