    Tiger Woods Drives Ratings Spike for NBC's Golf Coverage
    Woods' first PGA Tour win in five years delivers the biggest overnight numbers on record for the Tour Championship.

    Tiger Woods earned his first PGA Tour win since 2013 on Sunday, and a lot of people watched it happen.

    Overnight ratings for the Tour Championship's final round on NBC are more than double what they were in 2017, and set several records for the tournament. Woods shot a 1-over-par 71 in the last round, which was good enough to maintain his lead after three rounds and to win his first tournament since August 2013.

    NBC's coverage of the tournament's final round (1:30-6:15 p.m. ET) earned a 4.4 household rating in overnight metered markets, more than double the previous year's rating and the best overnight mark for the Tour Championship on record (which goes back to 2000). From 3-6:15 p.m., it averaged a 5.2, making it the highest-rated telecast in the history of the FedEx Cup Playoffs (dating to 2007), which close the PGA season.

    "Tiger Woods' win at the Tour Championship was an unforgettable event in golf," said Mike McCarley, president, golf at NBC Sports Group. "The massive gallery following Tiger up the 18th fairway was matched by record viewership across NBC Sports platforms."

    Excluding the four major tournaments, Sunday's broadcast was also the highest-rated single telecast of any PGA Tour event in 2018.

    I had to chuckle at the narrative on TV... "The greatest sports comeback ever?" "Nobody in the world thought he would ever see Tiger win another tournament ever?"
    Thanks for the medal Johanna!
