Sep 22, 2018; Atlanta, GA, USA; Tiger Woods plays his shot from the fifth tee during the third round of the Tour Championship golf tournament at East Lake Golf Club.

The 29-year-old from Northern Ireland is lurking just back of co-leaders Tiger Woods and Justin Rose after firing 68 for a five-under 135 total on Friday.

"It was just a grind out there but I loved every minute of it", Woods said.

"I kept saying 'Hey, I could still play this out of bounds.' But once I got the ball on the green I gave (caddie) Joey (LaCava) a high five because I knew it was done".

He won the event and the FedEx Cup four years ago. I've had hot weeks and you win, but - you can be in the midst of average play, but this comes through consistency for me.

Rory McIlroy, victor two years ago of both the FedEx Cup and Tour Championship, remains in the hunt in sole possession of third after shooting a 68.

"I've worked my way back, and I couldn't have done it without those around me ... some knew what I was struggling with, and it was really special to see them [other players] here".

Rose fell back into a tie for fourth, but it was enough to secure the FedEx Cup title and $10million bonus.

"I had a hard time not crying on the last hole", Woods told NBC.

Woods was understandably emotional as he closed out the victory he had been threatening over the course of a superb comeback year but was at a loss to explain his celebrations.

Woods eventually won by two shots with victory all-but guaranteed by a trademark, laser-like iron approach to the final hole.

"Sam is still ahead of me", Woods said in his post-round press conference.

But when he piped his drive 348 yards down the fairway on the last, it was a coronation despite Woods putting his second in the green-side bunker and missing the ensuing birdie putt.

Woods was never seriously challenged in the final round after starting with a three-shot lead over Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose.

Jack Nicklaus, the man widely considered the greatest golfer of all time and whose record of 18 major titles Woods is still chasing, said he was "happy" and "proud".

McIlroy birdied two of his first three holes but then lost a shot with a bogey on the par-four number four.
