Tiger Woods is a PGA Tour tournament champion once again, as the 42-year-old golfer won the Tour Championship on Sunday night. The 14-time major champion led the tournament, which took place outside Atlanta, from start to finish.

It was an unreal scene on Sunday evening, with one of the biggest golf crowds we've ever seen surrounding Woods on the 18th green.

Woods, obviously, has been through quite a bit since he last won a PGA Tour tournament. His previously most-recent win came in 2013.

Everyone was talking about Woods on social media late on Sunday. A bunch of Tiger Woods-related posts went viral.

The following video did some serious numbers. It features Woods looking at an iPad, which is playing clips of various sports media personalities talking about how the golfer is finished and that he'll never win again.

This video, from Skratch, has nearly 20,000 retweets and 40,000 likes:

Did you think that Woods was actually watching clips of people trashing him? If you did, we have some bad news - it's fake. Woods was actually watching a video of people saying some really nice things about him. It's from a while ago. "God bless you Skratch but this is so dishonest. He was literally watching video of people saying nice things about him, and you dubbed over the haters, all for the RTs. This is literal fake news," ESPN's Kevin Van Valkenburg tweeted.

Welp, it's a cool video, anyway.
