During the final round, which ran from approximately 1:30–6:15 p.m. EST, NBC brought in a 4.4 household rating in overnight metered markets, according to The Hollywood Reporter. From around 3:00–6:15 p.m., NBC averaged a 5.2 rating, which makes it the highest rated FedEx Cup Playoffs since its start in 2007.

This marks Tiger’s first tournament win since August 2013, where he won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. His climb back to the top has been riddled with scandal, injury, and heartbreak. (RELATED: SEE THE AWESOME MOMENT TIGER WOODS JUST HAD WITH A STAGE 4 CANCER PATIENT)

And while naysayers still maintain that Tiger still hasn’t won a major since 2008, it’s probably safe to say that Tiger Woods is back to playing at a champion’s level.
