After a five-year hiatus, Tiger Woods made his triumphant return to the winner’s circle on Sunday at the Tour Championship.
As evidenced by a quick look at social media, Woods’ win set the golf world on fire, with everyone from Jack Nicklaus to Michelle Wie sending their congratulations to the 42-year-old.
Here are the best reactions from a wild Sunday at East Lake, where Woods claimed PGA Tour victory No. 80:

THIS was indeed the day: Tiger Woods-at the FedEx Cup finale- taking the comeback season all the way to win #80. The TOUR Champion and a victor once again on the PGA TOUR. Now just 2 titles behind Sam Snead for the all time record.

What can I say! It was awesome to see Tiger back in the winner circle. I’ve never seen anything like the 18th hole. Was pretty insane. Congrats my man on overcoming so much to get back to the top of that mountain! Golf is in an awesome awesome place right now!
