Jordan Spieth breezes to big win at Pebble Beach

LEADERBOARD

The final day at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am delivered plenty of scenery but little drama. Here's how things ended up on the Monterey Peninsula, where Jordan Spieth cruised to a four-shot win:

Leaderboard: Jordan Spieth (-19), Kelly Kraft (-15), Dustin Johnson (-14), Brandt Snedeker (-13), Jason Day (-12)

What it means: Spieth started the day with a six-shot lead, and the outcome of the tournament was never really in doubt as he birdied the second hole and made it around Pebble Beach without dropping a shot. It's his ninth career PGA Tour victory, first since last year's Dean & DeLuca Invitational and signals that Spieith is again included among any discussion of the hottest players in the world.

Tiger Woods wins Tour Championship for first PGA Tour title since 2013

Tiger Woods' half-a-decade wait is over.

The former Stanford star broke out his Sunday red and won his first PGA Tour event in five years -- and his 80th overall -- after claiming the Tour Championship.

Woods finished the tournament at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta at 10 under par, one stroke ahead of second-place finisher Billy Horschel.

Woods opened the tournament with a blistering 65 on Thursday, and he shot another 65 Saturday after he birdied five consecutive holes on the front nine. The 42-year-old shot a 71 on Sunday, and held on to win despite bogeying twice on the back nine.

Woods improved to 54-4 when holding a share of the 54-hole lead, and 24-0 when leading by three or more shots entering the final day of competition. 

In addition, Woods just missed out on a major payday. He nearly finished as FedEx Cup champion -- which would've brought him $10 million -- but Justin Rose birdied the 18th hole to win that title. 

Vegas oddsmakers pegged Woods as a 9-1 favorite to win the Masters on Saturday, before he busted his slump. Now that he has a win under his belt, he might be even more of a favorite by the time April rolls around.

Watch Tiger Woods: Tour Championship live stream, Round 4 tee times, odds

Tiger Woods hasn't won a PGA Tour event in five years. That could change for the former Stanford golf star on Sunday.

Woods enters the final round of the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club with a three-shot lead, meaning that unless he has an epic meltdown, he'll claim his 80th PGA win and, possibly, an eight-figure paycheck. The golf world seems to be rooting for Tiger, the former world No. 1 golfer who could win the $10 million FedEx Cup bonus if he wins the Tour Championship and Justin Rose -- the current top-ranked golfer -- falls to fifth place or lower.

History is on Woods' side, as he's 53-4 in PGA Tour events when holding at least a share of the 54-hole lead, per ESPN. Woods hasn't blown a three-shot-or-more lead in 23 times facing that situation.

Woods' previous PGA Tour win came at the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, but he has shown in recent majors that he has shaken his persistent back issues and is returning to form. Oddsmakers certainly believe in Tiger, with Vegas listing him as a -175 favorite to win Sunday. He's also favored to win next year's Masters with 9-1 odds, and should he fulfill those expectations, he'd be three titles shy of Jack Nicklaus' record 18.

While many sports fans will be watching NFL games Sunday, you can bet some will flip the channel to see if Tiger can close out a Tour Championship win.
