Tiger Woods surprises us again and again. On the other hand, he’s a legend for a reason, is there? However, among the many salient moments in his illustrious career, he has certainly surpassed himself in an iconic one. In particular, it’s the 2019 Zozo Championship better known as his 82nd PGA Tour win.

Wood’s career has been at its lowest as he has experienced a five-year drought since winning the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in 2013. He achieved his 80th and 81st wins after operations on his back and spent a long time in recovery.

He took part in the first edition of the Zozo Championship and probably wasn’t expecting much. In addition, he had hobbled out of the FedEx Cup playoff months earlier and had an operation afterwards. So his chances were bleak here. However, Woods surprised everyone with his fabulous win.

Woods won by a 19-under score and a 3-stroke win over local favorite Hideki Matsuyama. He also beat Rory McIlroy, who was second at the time. In a post-win interview, a reporter asked, “Are wins like this a little sweeter at this point in your career?”

Woods, also impressed with his performance, said, “There is no doubt about it. I mean because there was a point where I didn’t know if I would ever play again. I was just hoping to be able to walk normally again. To be able to go through all of this to get where I am now is – I am very grateful. “

Reflecting on some of the darkest times in his career, he said, “I know how it feels to have taken this game, how I felt, from me. Where I couldn’t participate the way I wanted to. I’m just so happy and happy to have this opportunity again. “

It is an honor to partner with Sam Snead on the most victories in @PGATOUR history. Thank you mom and dad and everyone who contributed. Hideki fought an incredible fight in his home country, but doing so in Japan will never be forgotten. It’s been a great year. pic.twitter.com/m9ICuVyJmX
